I bought this during high school in 1995.

Red '88 Tercel for $700. Needed new breaks and a distributor cap to pass inspection but my dad taught me how to change them myself. I was also anal about changing the oil regularly during it's life. Learned how to drive standard on this beater too. It had 120K on it when I purchased it and then I put 150K more in 5 years until one cylinder blew. When the second cylinder blew I sold it to scrap yard for $200.

My friends and I had some amazing times with that crap box.... Believe it or not, this car picked up chicks, perhaps a couple were fugly but that was because my buddy lost a bet. The rest were definitely not fugly.
