I had an '80 Tercel too, a hand-me-down from my Mom that then went to my brother. Similar lack of care. He sold it for 50$ in '95 or so. The guy drove off in it.

I have the utmost respect for the old Tercels.

The only Hab that compares to that survivability is Steve Begin, but he's got a bigger engine, the body of a stock car, and thrives on demolition derbies, so it's not a good match. Even if he's like the Tercel in that he never quits and never dies, come what may.
