HMC Exclusive: The Amazing Kelly Hardy and Her Baja Camry

kelly camryToday’s HMC exclusive comes to us courtesy of Kelly Hardy, and we’re going to be talking about her 1992 Toyota Camry. Kelly is a falconer and she uses her Camry for, um, falconing. Is that a word? Anyways, she takes the car off road a lot, and that equals wear and tear. It’s also the reason she calls it the Baja Camry.

She bought the car in 1996 with 85K miles already accumulated. She says the alternator was swapped at 350K and the engine is original. Other than the routine maintenance and the bird poop clean up, it’s a pleasure to drive.  Just before she contacted me, the Camry had to have a fuel pump replaced.

So what is her Camry sitting at? It’s currently registering 391085 miles. Not bad. Not bad at all. At this rate, she’ll hit 400000 soon. Hopefully she’ll share that milestone with us.  Thanks for telling us about your adventures with your Camry, and we hope the Baja Camry and a long and amazing life.
