Toyota Tercel SR5 4WD Wagon (Mid 1980’s): Incredibly, this little car is a 4 wheel drive powered by a 1.5 litre engine. Apparently it could be shifted into 4WD mode while still moving. Spiders are making a home in the front bumper I notice. No doubt this is species Arachnis Automovis, commonly known as the car spider.
I took these incredible photos of a late model Toyota Hilux SR5 which was stolen and then set alight by car thieves. The fire brigade managed put the fire out, however it was too late, the vehicle was a badly burnt and a complete right off.
This Hilux looked liked it belonged to a tradie, all his tools were still in the back…albeit completely burnt of course.
What a waste and what a shame to do to this someone’s work vehicle. No doubt car thieves don’t give a rats arse about how hard someone has worked for this vehicle.
The sad remains of the Toyota Hilux SR5 the morning after.
The tail lights survived the fire.
Badly burnt, but the tires and engine also escaped.
Check the alloy rollover bar…it’s melted.
So intense was the heat of the fire that the window glass has melted.
The interior is completely gutted. Probably started with petrol.
