Edwardsville is a very nice area. Lot of rich people...some snobs for sure, but its a good area with very low crime and one of the top school districts in the state.




PS.....I live in Edwardsville. :)

Good to know. I do not deal well with snobs, as there are a lot in the area I live. Right now we are trying to get the seller to fix some things, so right now their response is the deciding factor if we get this house or not. Its in the Maryville area. There is a Maryville about 20minutes from my house here in TN too, but of course they pronounce it differently. ;)

Across the river in Missouri there are plenty of great windy roads through hill country. Once you head far enough west to get out of the Mississippi River basin you get into the Ozark foothills. They roll all the way south to Arkansas and southwest to Oklahoma.

Maryville is really nice too, only about 5mins from Edwardsville / Glen Carbon. They all kind of run together there. You might regret moving that close to me as I would be harassing you with questions and ideas all the time. :P

LOL

Yeah.....since Feb 1st huh? I could see why you would want to spend some time together.

I am all for meeting up with other All Trac owners in the area when you get up here and have time. Sadly I may not be able to drive my Trac though, still working on getting her going. I promise I would come in another cool Toyota though. :P

What is wrong with it? I know these can be long projects. Mine has been in the works for over 5 years.

BTW: Are there any good junk yards in the area?

I broke the fuel line, while trying to replace the fuel filter. I have the new line to replace it, its just been kind of hard to get at right now. Before that it wasnt starting, thats why I was address fuel, air, and spark needs. I just need to get it back together and test more.

There are a couple of junkyards around. They aren't too bad, but not like your going to find an All Trac in there. :P Last time I check "Pick n Pull" in St Louis, they had 3 1990-93 Celicas. A GT notchback, a GTS hatchback, and a plain hatchback.......I think.

I would be happy just to find some gts models since the body and interior is the same. All the yards here have are gt and lower. It made it hell for me to find molding.

I might need to start hunting interior pieces but I will not be sure till I get the car back.
Just good to know there is one near.

Changing the fuel filter sucks. I remember it taking me all day because I did not want to damage anything. I had head horror stories of people breaking the lines back in the day. I wish I did it when the motor was out of the car, would had been easier. I went to buy the special wrenches you need for it, which made it easier. Its been so long I forget what they were called though.

Flare nut wrenches...I think is what you might be talking about. I have a set and it still broke. :(

That its. Jeez, that sucks. I was paranoid as could be when I did mine. I hope to not have to do it again for a long time.

What date is he going to be there? I might be able to at least stop by before I drive back down to Tn.

Him and his lady will be staying with me the 2nd through the 5th I think. He was hoping you'd be in the area, always nice when you get to meet another all-trac owner.
