Cars Of A Lifetime: 1991 ES250 – Luxury For The Proletariat

18, 2012

I guess I just to be propositioned. During my brief with the Jeep Cherokee, I was that a friend of a friend wanted a Cherokee and had a Lexus to I was in no hurry to get rid of the Jeep, having purchased some new ball for it which I was meaning to install. But the of a friend came over and we drove the cars. The Lexus like it was missing on one cylinder but I didn’t care. So I swapped him for it. about the car made me think it could probably be remedied easily. Or even more yet, just lived at least until the next

For those unfamiliar with the it was essentially a tarted up Camry SE V6. windows and locks, moon-roof, transmission, up-rated sound different grill, head and lamps, alloy wheels, and nicer interior appointments as as a hardtop-look green house. was it; oh, and a significantly increased price But the price tag for me was essentially seven and twenty five dollars, back to the last time I any money for a car (Jeep Comanche). I better fuel economy my car generally was used only for my commute to work and back; the looked like just the

I don’t know why I got the feeling it would be easy to fix. the years of trading and buying, I I may have developed a sixth car The young man who owned the car said he had the spark plugs last and that it had always run that The plugs I could see did look but on a Toyota V6 of the era one cannot access or see the plugs or wires on the back bank.  Everything else out OK except a ball joint was pretty loose. Honestly I really did not look the car over I just didn’t care much. It seemed I was just one tired mule for another: the kid a Jeep, I needed a commuter. On the side, it was nearly perfect on the it had eighty eight thousand on it, was always dealer serviced the kid got it, had always been in his family, had from new, and the tires OK.

So I swapped him and we both went happy. Well, mostly; The Kid had driven a four wheel before. I got a report from our friend that the very day after he had bought it that he had it up in the woods, gotten it stuck, and had to pay a thousand dollars in towing The Jeep ended up in the tow lot waiting for him to up with the money to pay for the fees. Why would call a tow truck is beyond me, but rack it up to inexperience I He did finally get the Jeep out of hock

The car proved to be very dependable with the cylinder missing. I did not care about it much, but I was to see the fuel mileage to improve. So I up the procedure and found that to touch the spark plugs one had to the upper manifold and a plethora of I let it be for awhile longer.

Then my Steve from Eugene up to see me. He was still driving a pickup I had him some time ago. he had bought the Land Rover from me on payments several ago. When he lost his job he no longer afford the payments, so I him a pickup that was worth what he had paid to date and back the Land Rover. He was driving the pickup, and since he was out of the farm he was on, he did not need it any longer. I to trade him the Lexus for the truck. I missed that old truck, and the was not really my kind of car. He was and traded me back the truck.

One other problem the car had was that the hinge had a broken bolt. caused the trunk not to close and water to make it’s way in. I had the carpeting and drained the lake in the Upon examination it was found the bolt was broken off inside the lid and that someone had tried to and then to glue it. I told that it would have to be and tapped. He did part of the job but used a tapping screw instead of it out to the next larger size. did not last and so it must now be done But he did get the engine fixed.

He was driving to Eugene when the car died on He looked around under the and found that the ignition high tension lead was in half. After repairing he took it to a hippie mechanic who noticed that the plug were the original ones. So traded the mechanic several of his homemade beer (which is quite good) to have him the plugs and wires. It was found one plug was not firing at all. So now it great; of course, it’s a after all.

Lets just say I don’t trading it away, but I sure do its comfort and efficiency. But the vehicle I bought does one of those well; although it does get about half the fuel of the Lexus. Just in time for gas prices.

Author’s note: we are the end of Cars of a Lifetime. The last will be vehicles I currently I’ll also put together a of the cars, according to their attributes in my final COAL Cars I obtain in the future may be as “My Curbside Classic” if they are And I’m working on a new series now, but still in process.

[ED: looking forward to it! And is someone out there who’s had an assortment of cars they’ve and would like to start a new of COAL?]
