Hey guys, I'm giving away my ex beater, 1992 Black Toyota Celica ST, 4sp. automatic. Something is wrong with the engine, it cranks, but doesn't start. The engine has around 105k miles on it (previous owner swapped it when the car hit around 130kmiles), the car and chasis has around 235k miles on it. Since I'm a full time student and working when I have no class, I absolutely have no time to fix it or check out what is wrong with it. The engine problem occurred when I was on 380 E heading to 101 South going around 75mph on a Monday morning at around 10am back in mid september of 08. I had it towed home and it's been sitting since. All the electronics work except for the AC. The car has fairly new tires, new front axels isntalled at around 228k, and new strut mount at 231k. The only thing you need is a tow truck. This car got me around 410miles to the tank (commute from san mateo to sf everyday), I've had the car checked and inspected every 5k miles, and fed it synthetic oil every time. Other than the engine not working, there are no other issues. Back in July of 08 I drove the car down to Cal Poly Slo and back the same day in high summer temps, no overheating whatsoever. I've driven this car from San Mateo (Home) to san francisco (school) everyday from Sept of 06 to sept of 08. Never left me stranded excluding the engine failure.

Contact me through pm or just reply in this thread

Thanks!

Ernest

It's located in San Mateo, near Peter Pan BMW. Weekends, any time after 1pm is fine. Weekdays: Mon. and Wed: after 4pm. Tues, thurs and fri: after 11am. That's my school schedule, my work schedule is flexible, so I can probably be available based upon your schedule.

Hi Ernest,
Is your car still available? I may be interested so I can help fix it and donate it to some people I know who don't have a car and could use one. I can have it towed anyday. Let me know.
Thanks!
Benny
