So far replaced:

DS flex brake line


in progress:

hard steel line
A/C check

Also, wife might be Driving the 91 Trac and her 89 GT convertible might be up for sale, she still needs to learn how to drive a 5spd so we will see if she can confortably drive a 5spd or not.

This thread will be updated as I find out more info.

yes! you will not have a happy drive in FL unless you have A/C, since you will use the A/C 10-12 months out of the year.

Vert gets driven about 2 miles a day, it has ALWAYS been garage kept and its freaking Mint for an 89.

Problems are:

could use a top, it doesnt leak but it looks like ass.

steering is loose, from what Iv learned dealing with Ajilon and her new GTS it could very well be the rack.

The rear engine mount is done, needs to be replaced.

Power antenna broke just 2 weeks ago, it still gets the stations but it doesnt go up and down anymore

Good things about the car:

Paint is a 10 out of 10
Body is a 10 out of 10
interior is a 10 out of 10
A/C is Ice cold
all 4 Tires have 500 miles on them
128k miles (very low for the year)
Auto trany shifts smooth and fine
we are the 2nd owner, the original owner was a lady in her 40s.

I would want $3k in its current condition, but the car will not be advertised until wife desides that she would like a 5spd.

Hehheh.... my wife already knew how to drive a manual when I met her, and she loves manuals....unfortunately, both cars we NOW own are automattics :( Oh, well....could be worse....at least they're both Toyotas ;)

Jessie doesn't know how to drive a stick.

I am not looking forward to teaching her how either.

Called them yesterday, both rear Calipers will need to be replaced since the bleeder screw is rustawelded to the caliper. 1 has snaped in half the other he wont even try to bleed.

Discount wants $50 for each with a $25 core, that isnt as bad as I thought so I will replace them soon.

that can be fixed, they are a some sort of a counter-drill`s that bite into the bleeder and then unscrew them out if there, i fixed a caliper on my yamaha that way,

or else

bleed trought the screw that holds the line on the calliper :laugh:

(yes im a cheap bastard i know ) :owned:

Thats funny you said that, thats how he is going to bleed the line for now, just unscrew the line going to the caliper.

Total bill came out to:
$80

But the rear calipers will need to be replaced since the bleeder screws are rustawelded to the caliper. The brakes are still spongy because they couldnt bleed the brakes.

The A/C compresor spins freely so its not frozen.
