Its pretty damn hard to beat Toyota. My Tundra has 270K on it and other than regular maintenance items, the only things I have replaced are the tires & brakes (twice). I'm not easy on a truck, especially this past 5 months of earthworks. When the time comes, I'm buying another Tundra!

Yep, my Tundra 250K+ has only ever needed a airbag wire replaced.

But you pay for that dependability in gas mileage ...last trip to AMP hauling the racecar 6.5mpg 8O and going 15km/hr slower on the way back made no difference. I had a small delivery last week to the Caribou wind farm (roughly the same distance) and they had to stop for fuel 3 times even without the trailer.

But I bet this gets good mileage (trying to get back on subject :roll:) with the 1600 aircooled VW engine:

Those cars refuse to depreciate. They were the same price when I was looking at them 5 years ago.

Not even remotely close to a sports car, looks like a little old ladies car (and probably was), probably not enough power to get out of it's own way, and most likely handles like it looks...


But these things were tanks! ...you just couldn't kill them if you tried. Two different NBSCC members had these in the day and they beat & beat on them and they wouldn't die.

So I submit this 57,000km! car only because somebody may know somebody that wants a cheap reliable car despite the fact that it is just an appliance on wheels?

New Brunswick Mercurys must have been different to Nova Scotian Fords. My brother had a Tempo version of these new, as I recall it was the newest and most horrid car that I had driven at that time, if it would start, something to do with Ford discovering the joys of ECMs or something. The "minor cosmetic damage" may be the left rear, it doesn't show in the pics and it looks like there may be damage to the 1/4 panel.

Vanderlaan also had one, racked up hundreds of thousands of klicks and I don't think he ever changed so much as a clutch...

NS cars must have been built on Mondays :roll:

I had a Topaz like this, I ran it 45 degrees into a curb covered by snow in the Zellers parking lot going about 60, car launched into the air and spun around almost 180 degrees. It didn't handle any worse after that. I haven't experienced a worse automatic transmission, had to be replaced twice, but the engine was still good at 250k.

Looks like it may need a little work, but love the description under deficiencies: "exhaust loud" :orglaugh:

I know this car might be a little old for some of us, but I wonder what kinda of lap times it could do?

Speaking of BaT, thankfully this violates my strict "My car can't cost more than my house" rule.
