QCyaris

picked myself up a 2007 yaris while i was back in Ontario visiting family for a couple weeks...dragged it back to GR. it needs a bit of TLC, but it has a special surprise under-hood.














hanging out with the #wrecho



while i was in Ontario i went to a couple of u-pull wreckers and got a bunch of pieces to replace the HU and the airbag-less steering wheel. thanks to crankyoldman for the HU brackets!

Assuming you got a decent deal, the cost was probably worth it just to get the SC

Cars with much less mileage can be had for about $3000 in this part of Ontario. He probably scored a wicked deal!

My first yaris was bought for $3200cad with 114,000km.

Second (blue one I'm lifting) for $2500 with 160,000km

The 2zr swapped car for $3100 with 139 on the odometer. Granted this is an RS model that was in good shape with no rust.

God I hope that S/C is in good shape. I'd personally be nervous picking up a Blitz these days. Most of the ones floating around are 10 years +/- old now. Is this vehicle previously known to YW?

Seems to work well for the 200-250km I drove it. Car pulled hard.

Biggest issue removing it is seized bolts..
