Battle Wagon: 1987 Toyota Cressida

Cressida was a common character in Renaissance era stories about the Trojan war -- specifically she was the daughter of a Greek seer who falls in love with Trollius (a Trojan prince) and is later in love with the Greek soldier Diomedes...but the various stories have one common theme -- that  Cressida is the paradigm of a faithless lover.  Even Shakespeare (oh...right, the guy who actually wrote his plays, the Earl of Oxford, Edward de Vere) wrote about Cressida being a tease and it is interesting that Toyota named their up-model version of the Camry for this Greek temptress.  I wonder if this Cressida would leave you the minute the road gets rough? Find this 1987 Toyota Cressida offered for $4,000 in Tacoma, WA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

 See a better way to drive a wagon?


  1. I like these my buddy had a older version he bought with a lot of miles on the clock he was worried that it had low oil pressure @ idle never ticked or knocked but was always worried it would lock up some day never did he sold it after many more miles.

  2. 231 000 miles? I wonder where the older couple went. Labeling your spare is always a good idea. Too bad it has a velour interior.
