    Ok, I kick myself for missing a non RUSTY convertible for $800 about 3 years ago. Dude kindly held it for me but I got sidetracked so the next guy got it. Fair play.


    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    Non-rusted Fireflies/Swifts/Metros are like unicorns in this part of the world anymore.

    What are the odds of a little old lady from Arizona or New Mexico (that drives to church & the grocery store once a week) owning a 2017+ Mirage ES manual? Just thinking ahead!

    $3,800 for the Camry ... and it got whipped right up. Interesting. I have a 2003 Camry LE. It's 0 rust, got some paint peel on top of the mirrors, and normal chips and dings. But under the hood it is absolutely flawless. My parents bought it new in 2002, from me / my employer when I was working for Toyota.

    Down here, I could probably get $8k for it, but I haven't looked. It is as solid as it comes. Helluva car. Ran it full A/C, my 3 sons and I, full luggage, 80 mph cruise, down to Miami and back and it averaged ... it was 31.3 mpg. It was comfortable, quiet and the A/C kept it perfect inside. I remember setting the cruise at about 82 or 83 mph, and confirming I was doing 80 mph via GPS. I was so impressed with it. That was like 2017 or something. Still drives just as good.

    Yeah, it's not that crazy here ($8k for a 20 year old Camry)

    But I probably could have squeezed another $500-750 (so, around 4500) if I was willing to put up with more tire-kickers. Even with the fuel leak.

    Dad paid $5k before taxes 5 years ago. Also put a fair amount into it (brakes including parking cables, exhaust) in the past couple of years.
