Default Power Antenna?

Anybody out there have a power antenna they don't need. I have a 93 and having a heck of a time finding a stock power antenna and those universal ones suck anus. Thanks much!

Good luck, I need one too. There was a guy parting out a 94 that said to ask him for parts on this forum but he never got back to me when I aske if I could have his.

Yeah, I have found these things almost impossible to find at all much less in working order. I'm been to/called every junk yard within a 75 mile radius of my home and I found one and the motor was burnt out on it.

Buy the way, you can get a universal power antenna on ebay for pretty cheap but I'm REALLY going to recommend against it. It was a piece of garbage and is damn near impossible to mount cleanly in the camry. Just so you know. But I'm about to just say screw it and throw in a universal stationary "euro" antenna from ebay.

Good luck out there!

Actually, that euro deal does't look too bad for the price. As long as I can go throught the carwash without messing with it. How is the reception with one of those units?

I didn't think so either, And I used to have the same rubber type antenna on my old Jeep. The reception was decent with it, I didn't notice any difference from stock at that time, but I also RARELY listen to the radio. I'm really just sick of having a hole with duct tape over it in my rear passenger panel. Even if it is my beater/winter/commuter car. I ordered the euro antenna shortly after my last message, when it gets here I'll let you know how the reception is. Later!

Well, I've got it installed. It looks pretty good, I'll try to get pictures up a little later. But it was kind of a pain in the ***. The headless bolt that came with it was too small and then I made another and it was too long and then I shortened at and then the base of the damn thing moved up. I finally got it on and it SHOULD stay but I'm not placing any bets on it. I ended up using a few washers to get it to stay. All in all, I can't say I'm completely happy with it just because I'm not certain that I'll not have to screw around with it again. BTW when I visited my local best buy for a little speaker install advice (that was also a pain because toyota stock size isn't actually 6.5" in the front) I noticed they had almost the exact sam antenna in the install garage. I might recommend buying one from there so you can easily return it if you don't like it. Oh and reception seems fine I guess. Nothing overly impressive or bad as far as i can tell. Good Luck!
