Selling the nicer of my two gen 2 wagons, and feeling a bit sad about it...but it is to make room for a new Celica that has a 3sfe in it :)

Anyone else ever had one? I'm picking mine up Tuesday.

What you say "new" Celica with a 3S-FE, new is relevant right? I had an '88 Celica, my first car, with a 3S-FE in it. Great car, fairly easy to work on and get parts for, just like the 2nd Gen Camrys. Since they are a lot a like. Same problem with both of them is they will rust out long before they stop running.

Wagons are rare period in any year, at least around here. I see the Subaru wagons probably more than any other make, and some Volvo wagons. Never see a gen2 Camry wagon on the road, ever.

The only way I'd get rid of my wagon is if someone offered me an All-Trac as a trade, and even then it would be hard to let it go.

I saw a BMW wagon today, not sure the year but it was pretty new. Well every BMW on the road is new-ish, I think we all know why. :thumbsup:

I have a Celica GT-S.

Never drove it an the 3S-GE ate itself. Trying to come up with a way to fix it really cheap so I can flip it (rebuilt fuel system, etc.) and get the Camry sisters running.

Hate to say it, but I may end up needing to sell the '91... Really don't want to though.

We have a bunch of these wagons around here. I had to wait a long time for a reasonably priced 5 speed so of course I bought the first one I saw. And of course it had to come from the east coast so it is rusty as hell. Not like all the lovely Cali native Camrys.

Well no one wants my rusty old wagon for 1500 :( and I need to get rid of it time to lower the price I guess...

I'm picking up my Celica at 9 and I have a box of parts waiting at work.

From 2000 until now I've owned 3 different 2nd gen wagons. I'm in WI so there is usually rust involved. I got lucky on the 1990 I have now, it came from NE. One small rust spot on the bottom of the driver side fender (replaced), 80k miles, $3k, one owner! I didn't even have to think about snatching that one up. I thought the price was a little high, they wouldn't budge because there were 4 other people waiting in line to buy it. Now I'm glad I bought it. The only way to keep it nice is to not drive it in winter, so that is what I'm doing. I would really like to put a 3S-GTE swap in it, looking around the Celica Clips are pricy $4k -ish.

Someone bought my wagon yesterday. I didn't get what I hoped but I'm glad its gone now. The Celica is loads of fun and in great condition. And the price is the best part :D

I still have a second gen 2 wagon I'm looking forward to getting back on the road.
