Overpaying for a car like this would've been a complete disaster, luckily the going rate for a running/driving car (especially one powered by Toyota) is always $1,000. Salvage title not withstanding I was able to sell the car in just minutes. Unfortunately I had planned on fixing things that I don't get to work on very often like the A/C. This poor 2006 Scion tC was so beat it would barely be worth putting tires on it. It had been hit on almost every corner and to say the repairs were poor would be putting it mildly.

Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

I have seen this guy throwing money out the window a lot lately. Does he really make enough on You- Tube to afford throwing so much money away on all the crap vehicles lately? His sponsors cannot be keeping up with his poor choices on vehicles.

That 2AZ FE engine was a bad engine Toyota made. Piston rings were designed wrong and it burns to much oil around 100,000 miles. The 2AR FE which replaced this engine was a great engine

Maybe in Kansas cheap old beaters that run good you can get for $1000 or less. Here cheap old beaters for $1000 look like that and have mechanical issues. If I was in a pinch and needed a reliable point a to b beater I’d buy it for $1000 in a heartbeat. I’ve been working on cars for 25 years many makes and models. Those engines like you said love clean oil. Pretty easy to work on a find parts for too new or used. Put it on Craigslist as is $1000 it’ll sell.

You chickened out on the deal. Its winter now. You don't need AC. But a fix would have sold the car. You didn't need to replace the body panels. You should have hit it with some 600 grit quick. Painted it matt black on the side of your house. A little body filler. Showed the people how to fix the AC. Made the boot lock work. Manual would be good. Oil change. Good little car for somebody. Polish up the head lights. Then out the door. We just watched something for nothing. And you chickened out. Finish the job. It's just a winter car for some college kids. Not not what I wanted to watch. And I like your channel. Pull your sox up or don't post this shit.

I bet you still could have buffed the paint, fixed the AC, JB Welded some stuff, and tweaked a few things and got maybe $2200 out of it. That could have been a roughly 600 to 800 profit

Get an ebay blank key. You can program it yourself without a scan tool. Find an ace hardware and if your nice to them they will cut it for you. All in all $15-$20 for a new key

It could have been worse, you could have got a car with the engine locked up. Rich rebuilds bought a Dodge charger sight unseen from an auction and sent it to Alex of Legitstreetcars. Alex borescoped the engine and saw the damage. You can break even at least.

unlock the hatch (either by pressing unlock twice on the keyfob or using the power unlock toggle on the driver's door), then step up behind the car, place your hand underneath the lip above the license plate, and when you feel underneath, you will hit a plastic/rubber bar. Push upward on it to engage the electronic latch release. Once it is released, the hatch will lift open a few inches and you can then lift it completely open.

JR, Hold up! 137,000 miles. The car runs n' drives...You can't beat that for a grand. A little PATIENCE and body work, a little paint and elbow grease. Someone would be glad to have a car like that. Some people don't have a lot of MONEY! Anyway, I like the car. If I was closer i'd buy it fix it up and flip it or just enjoy the ride...Good gas mileage! GOD BLESS!

If you climb into the trunk and pull up the spare tire cover, there should be a little cover at the latch that will let you get the hatch open.
