Even Toyota Hooned The Crap Out Of The 4WD Tercel Wagon

My desire for an old Toyota Tercel burns strong, perhaps even stronger after watching Toyota itself hoon the crap out of one of their '80s 4WD station wagons.

This is a pair of ads for the Toyota Sprinter Carib (short for Caribou), which we got as the second-gen Tercel wagon. The straight-fours in these cars were still mounted longitudinally back in the first and second generations of the Tercel, making 4WD possible.


I want one of these (or an earlier first gen with the glass hatch) desperately.
