Thanks! I'll pass that tip on to the owners.

we tried that but in vain; the car was having issue with fuel valve or carbon canister or even both; that was too much for us to work on and visually the car was deteriorating plus other stuff; Also, once I bought a newer car to myself, Mazda6 was logical transfer to my dad, even though its far from the perfect car yet its more of the car than he had in Camry; the guy who bought the car Im sure he knows about cars more than average Joe and he will fix it; he told us a story of Camry at this age hitting 600K miles somewhere in his neighborhood

Say someone get really mad at you on a forum (not bitog of course!), well now they can find your name and address and suddenly your 'forum anonymity" is gone. Soem one driving down the highway doesnt know your forum handle. ... though they can follow you home if they are mad at you - regardless of seeing your tag #. Too many social media psychos out there. Stupid Smart phones destroy the world.
Registrations aren't public info in any state that I'm aware of...unless you're a LEO or someone else with access doing personal lookups no one is going to be able to ID you based on a plate number.

yes it was 2000 year model; I think was paid about $21k at the time
I just looked and our local dealer has 2020 Camry LEs for $24,000. Not a lot of price increase over 20 years considering they now include adaptive cruise and more safety stuff.
I don't think it could be that much, as with inflation $21k 20 years ago is now over $31k.

Are you sure it was 21K? I almost bought a loaded 2002 Camaro SS automatic for 24K. That seems high for a basic car.

Toyota Camrys of that area are still all around my parts. My Aunt had that same generation Camry with the V6 and she said she wished she never traded it for a new one -- them year V6s were the sludge prone years also.
