New member from Greece/Colorado with an urgent plea

Postby gab » Thu Aug 17, 2017 3:27 pm

Hello,

my name is George and I subscribed to this forum in order to send a plea.

I have been a proud 2nd hand owner of a ST185, 1992 Toyota Celica All-Trac turbo for some years now. Unfortunately I need to part ways with this car and I am wandering if anyone is willing to take it. I am giving it away, if anyone is interested in the Colorado area.

The car has about 124,500 miles and apart from some minor problems (driver's seat, cup holders, trunk lid struts) it is in a very good condition. Of course there is a catch. The car has been sitting idle in a storage room (like a garage) for some years now and has the expected issues: flat tires and dead battery, to say the least. The car was running flawlessly at the time it was parked in the storage room. So anyone willing to take this car, must spend some money, not that much, I assume, to recondition the car.

The car is heading for the junk yard on Friday, August 18, if no one is willing to take it.

If anyone is interested, please reply to this post with some contact info and we 'll take it from there...

Goodbye

The parting away plan is put on hold for the weekend, because of some new developments. I will know for sure on Monday whether I am taking the car to Greece with me or I am abandoning it. And hoys was there first.

By the way, I am in Fort Collins.

Others definitely have dibs, but I -really- don't want to see an ST185 fall to the local UPAP yards. If everything else falls through, please let me know. I live in Co. Springs, have a place to safely store a car until I can get it back on the road, and also have a friend with a truck and trailer capable of transporting a car.

I'll keep my fingers crossed you can take it with you? :D

It seems I hit the brick wall with Greek authorities. So I need to abandon the car and I need to do it today.

I hate sending the car to the Junk Yard, but I doubt anyone can come here in Fort Collins and pick it up on a moment's notice. I cannot think of another solution at this time.

Maybe someone could pick up the car from the Junk Yard as a whole, but I don't know how much this would cost.

Bye bye ST185.
