Celebrating the extraordinarily ordinary: Toyota thinks inside the box.

Stifle that yawn!  When was the last time you saw a 1986 Toyota Tercel wagon, known in Japan as the Sprinter Carib? Huh?  Thought so!  There’s a low mileage (54K) example for sale on Ebay that our friends at Bringatrailer found.  It drew some hilarious reader comments, a few of which we just had to share:

“I always thought the back end looks like an ATM.”

“Didn’t want it when new. Don’t want it now!”

“Unsubscribe.”

“>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Why? <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<“

We never said it was built like a bank vault, we said it looked like an ATM

We at Feral Cars are, most decidedly, not among the haters. No Sir or Ma’am.  We kinda dig this car and found one down the street. We spoke to its proud  owner, a Thai national, who uses it to — get this — commute once or twice a month between Fresno and Los Angeles, that’s 220 miles each way!

This unassuming little worker bee was a paragon of both asymmetry and right angularity.  Nissan Cube, you’re late to this wild party!

Actor/designer Aslam Husain shot an ersatz period commercial for a car just like this!  Watch it here and grok this as art imitating life, a dull life, to be more specific. We can dig the Boxcar Willie-esque appeal of this Lego-tastic conveyance.  It’s non-phenomenally sensational!

If you’ve stalked a feral car and would like to submit a photo of it for posting consideration please send it to us:   info (at) feralcars (dot)com OR through our Facebook page.
