1989 Toyota Camry 2.5L twin cam V6. Its not in great shape, its my grandparents second vehical, maybe gets used once a week by them, and since my Bonneville is in my shop class while i do the rear ball joints and tie rod ends there letting me use it for as long as needed. I figured i might as well clean it up a bit for them, i applied a coat of Turtle wax to it, still has the original Woolco price tag for 2.99 on it, bought in 1992!









157,250 kms on the clock, thats 98,250 miles.


2.5L V6, its a screamer, but its most certainly not no 3.8L SC'd!
No the engine is not on fire, even though the picture kind blurred that way!
The trans is dieing in this car now, it slips from a dead stop and downshifts harshly on the hwy when you let go of the gas, also the fluid has turned black from its flush 400 miles ago!
At least it gets good mileage![/img]
