1991 Toyota Tercel project

Go figure. I had a super clean 1991 Tercel 2 door, 5 speed, rust free, no accidents, mostly original nice paint, mint black checkered interior, pass mirror delete car. With 165k KMs (102k miles). I sold it at the beginning of January to a girl that had just moved here, didn't have much cash and hadn't found a job yet. She called me today, crying, then put the mechanic on the phone. Yup, it burnt an exhaust valve and lost a cylinder. She hadn't even put 1500 KMs on it. I do a lot of car stuff to make a living, so I did what I thought was the right thing and gave her her money back., if anyone in the Vancouver area wants a super clean, 3 cylinder Tercel, runs great except for the cylinder that doesn't lol, please let me know! It's too nice to scrap, but I ain't going to fix it. It'll be cheeeeap. Cheaper if you bring beer when you come to look at it
