6 oh 8 512 7741 YOU COULD GET COLLECTOR PLATES AND NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR REGISTRATION AGAIN FOR THIS CAR

Car runs and drives great. Would be a good first car or if you just need a reliable and affordable way to get around. It is in primer grey and could be painted also or left as is. The heat works and has a radio/tape deck. They have tape deck converters for using your smart phone too. The tires are good on it and it will go thru the snow. This is a fun car to drive and faster than you think. It has the super rare 4A-GE engine which is a 130 HP 16 valve twin cam 1.8 L V4 and has 4 wheel disc brakes sport suspension and aluminum rims. I toyed around with the idea of painting the car blue or green and adding a racing number on each side..(see photos) but painted over the test spot with primer again.. so currently its all just grey/silver. The car was originally red (see engine compartment photo) and spent most of it's life in Los Angeles so has less rust than cars 10 years newer than it.
Q: I was wondering if the timing belt and maintenance on it has been done to it?
A: yeah, the timing belt was done less than 3k miles ago..2 years ago. I think it cost me $400 which is pretty cheap from what other cars cost..the mechanic was also a friend..so maybe he just gave me a good deal. i've had both front axle's replaced, the clutch, clutch master, starter, alternator, distributor rotor, wires, all the normal stuff over the years. I drive the car rarely..mostly as a backup vehicle for when my other cars don't run..but this one is by far the most reliable car i've ever owned. I regret not sticking with toyota's. I just put in new front brake pads and a new front left wheel bearing. It needs a back right caliper if you want the emergency brake to work..but the caliper still works for braking just not the e brake..frozen up from lack of use I'm sure. Might be able to un stick it.. I just park it in gear when on a slope and turn the wheels toward the curb just in case.
