There, I fixed it!

Oil catch can. Blow-by, anyone?

Sliding sun visor extension. Why make a duct tape wallet when you can make one of these?

Relocated the CB so that I can use my cup holders again.

They make great coin holders. I have another one of those bags tied up in the trunk with about $10 worth of change for parking meters.

It is with great sadness that I must announce that I'm selling the Tercel. It's been a great car and it never broke down or left me stranded in the 10 years that I've owned it. It is starting to show its age though, and I feel that it's time for some newer transportation. I bought a 2007 Corolla (automatic), but don't worry, I've still got my manual Celica.

I'm sure I could have. Couldn't pass up a good deal and bought it from a family member. It's got low miles and I've known its maintenance history since it was new.

It's got just under 243,000 miles on it. 136,000 of those were mine.

Congrats on the new (to you) car =) And the Tercel lives on to serve another loyal driver.

One of the first cars I drove is a 1993 Toyota Corolla. Still runs strong to this day, my friend now has it lol 8) The headliner is coming apart, the paint is half gone, but boy does it still keep on tickin.
