Check this forum out for info on maintaining and repairing........http://www.toyotacelicas.com/forums/93-fourth- generation/.....Also pick up a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual at your local auto parts store or online for your model specific vehicle.

To sell it, put a sign in the window, post on craigslist, etc. A clean example like yours , you can get around $2500 if it is running,inspected and in good working order. Once you agree on a price with a buyer, take the title with you and all info to the local DMV or notary to transfer the title and the cash.

I posted it and need as much as i can get out of it is 500 to low. It doesnt run....i need the max of what i csn get out of the car.


What is wrong with it? Someone willing to take a chance on a car that doesn't run, wants it as cheap as possible, as you don't know what it needs to repair. How long has it been sitting on the side of the house? Post it for $1000 and see what kind of offers you get. Scrap is probably $200 tops.
