Default New Old Yo - Gen 3 - one owner - 200k

hi everyone. This looks like a good forum to start. My first toyota was a FJ40 and I regret selling it every time i see one still on the salty roads of the midwest. I did a lot of work to that beast and it was a beast.
My latest YO car as of October is a 92 Camry with 199k - now reads over 202k, was a one-owner car who looked like she kept it up at dealer or indy garage for its life until a small "fender bender". The 'bender' at the driver's quarter panel, broke off the fender - er, bumper - and it was just hooked on by the owners son with lots of wire and some rope. I wrangled the undercarriage plastic nearly back in shape and put the bumper back on as best I could the first night i had it and she started to look a little more respectable then. After a few trips to the junk yard and some elbow grease she is - was - looking much better but has seemingly started to develop some 'old age quirks' - ie. leaks. Now on to my first 'diy mechanic' post to pin point some of those issues...

Congrats on your gen3! sorry to hear about your FJ though. If you ever have leaks with the power steering sys, try lucas p/s fluid. It works the magic.
