The Automotive Equivalant Of Gruel —

One would think I would have a lot to say about this car, since I spent an entire autumn installing a new engine I purchased from a junk yard run by the Yakuza in Richmond, British Columbia. This Toyota Camry LE (which stands for Limited Edition; i.e., only 100,000 of my particular car was produced) was the first car I ever owned that had power windows and locks! It was responsible white on the exterior and smooth listening Lite 105 blue on the inside. It had a 4-speed automatic gearbox coupled to a gutless 4-cylinder engine that made exceeding the speed limit out of the question. It was cheap to insure; cheap on gas; excellent visibility and was very practical (practical pronounced in a nasily voice). Were I an insurance salesman, I would be in automotive nirvana. Yet, I can't think of anything of interest I did in this car other than commuting to work. I actually purchased a Jack-In-The-Box ball for the antenna, because I would constantly loose it in parking lots. Perhaps secretly I was lusting for the far sexier Nissan Stanza. And this is the epitome of Toyota products: they are thoroughly logical, but sometimes I want a car to grab me by the cojones and have a feel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: After doing 200K miles, you can still send it to Paraguay and make a profit

Cons: You really don't care much for cars, don't you?

1988 Camry 2 Ltr Fuel Injected — purchased as a work car I am so suprised how well this car runs yes it is old and knocked about making it ugly but it's very reliable and economical. only repairs;brakes and a windscreen(my fault) not a fast take off but holds it's own over 60kmph. Strong body means not much damage in minor accidents. Seems to use a fair amount of oil and clutch fluid. Excellent first car and an easy car to learn to drive in.

Pros: reliable economical spacious interior and boot

Cons: old shape makes it visually unappealing

Hunk Of Junk With 4 Wheels — I feel so bad I ever purchased this car. I had a 1988 Chevy Nova prior to my Camary, and even though it had dings on it, it ran like a pro. Never any problems other than replacing the tires. Should not have gotten rid of it.

Owner for 4 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:7,000

Pros: Sets a fine example for the junk yard queen

Cons: It still runs when I run behind and push - just like the Flinstones.

Cheap And Reliable Basic Car. — My first car was this kind of old rustbucket...but that's what i appreciated in it; easy car for a novise driver =) Needed hardly any maintenance, and even at about 160km/h, it's still quite steady to handle.

Pros: Very nice handling, quiet, and comfortable for a car this old!

Cons: Terrible appearance, 20 years old... =o  Getting rusty easily as most Japanese cars. About 10-12l/100km =(
