My baby is gone.

1995 Toyota Tercel DX 4dr Sedan


This car was a $2000 gift from a relative while I was in college. It was bought at 94,000 miles. The previous owners never changed the Transmission fluid, and I was told it had formed a sludge so thick that changing it now would destroy the car. I didn't think it would last a month, but that car became my life. It took me all over the U.S. and to every beach you could imagine. I drove to de- stress, for hours every night for years. I had it up to 376,280 miles when it was viciously murdered 12/21/2009. Someone had stolen my car keys and crashed my baby into a snow plow. I've been crying ever since. I'll never find another car that's only expenses were gas and oil changes. 376,280 miles...

Best Features

The fact that I couldn't seem to kill it, no matter how hard I drove it, how far, or how fast. It would take on mountains regularly without complaint, as I live and drive along the Blue Ridge. This car does not break down... I realized this 5 years ago somewhere around the 200,000 mile mark
