This car has been lovingly maintained by my family for 30 years. The reason the car only has 154359 miles is that we lived in Europe for 15 years and only drove the car a couple of months a year when we returned to the US on visits and to work. 

When we moved back to the US in 2008 I took the car to Sonny's Toyota in Decatur GA and asked him to go over the car and replace or repair everything, which he did. Sonny was one of the original Toyota repair men in the US. Timing Belt, struts, all rubber hoses, and battery were replaced 

Then I took the car to the best detail shop in Athens GA and Andy took the car apart down to the medal and cleaned everything from the bottom up. 

Then, in August 2008, a drunk backed into the side panel on the drivers side, which was repaired by popping the dent out and repainting the panel. This is the only time the car has been in a shop except for general maintenance. 

In June, 2013, Classic City Motor Co, the people who have maintained the car for the past 11 years, converted the air-conditioning system to the new standard. The antenna motor needs replacing, the trunk device to keep the trunk up needs replacing. Everything else works on the car. 

I am selling this car which has been part of our family for so long because I have had knee surgery and have a hard time getting in and out. I  am looking for a new owner to love this vehicle the way we have for so many years.
