    there's just something awesome about the wheels outnumbering the cylinders.

    You won’t find one in the US cheap. They even show up in Bring A Trailer. Lot of demand, not much supply.

    As discussed in another thread,
    http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthre...ghlight=Pickup
    I have a 93 Toyota pickup that I just put a rebuilt engine in for about $3,000. The mechanic looked at me like I was crazy, but I like the small pickup size and can't get one for that price even if you could find it. I'm happy with this one.

    No - really? Are you sure?

    Man, some of those old posts bring back memories!
    I had a 1990 Tacoma that I drove until 2003, gave it away with 247,000 on the clock. One of my children confirmed that it was still on the road in 2009.
    The 2003 that I replaced it with is parked outside waiting for me to twist her tail and go somewhere. She has 352,000 miles on her. Change the oil and filter every 5,000 as called for and drive like you have some sense. I replaced one coil pack at about 250,000 miles, front pads at 276,000, (rear shoes are original), and the rack and pinion at about 300,000. Clutch is original although I am hearing a faint whine at certain speeds that may indicate a throw out bearing is in her near future.
    The area that we, her and I, live in is flat for many miles and doesn't have what I consider "rush hour" traffic. I grew up inside the Beltway of D.C. and would abhor driving a stick shift in that traffic.

    I miss Paladin.

    Good afternoon, Figment.
    We do have wind tides here, you need to be sure that any vehicle you purchase hasn't been through one of those. The Sound water is salt and causes much problems when it invades your under body and and electrical devices.

    It didn't feature a 22R, but this is from when Top Gear was worth watching

    I have a 2008 Tacoma with over 300,000 miles. I can't imagine an older one being more trouble free than this one has been. I have replaced plugs once or twice and plug wires at least once. Change oil and filter every 5 or 6 thousand miles, now running synthetic. Toyota replaced the driveshaft, u-joints, and center bearing for free last year and gave me a BMW to drive while they did that.

    I am jealous of the lack of rust - not just to keep my cars on the road longer, but also because there are more fun old cars/trucks available.

    In the early 80's I had a 4 year or so run of buying old cars in southern states, bringing them to VT & selling what were now southern cars. Made some decent money at it for a while.

    Love my '90 22r enough I did a thread, in praise of the PLP.

    I recently moved our household about 5 miles, one proper little pickup load at a time. Maybe a hundred trips, or at least it felt that way. Small loads but easy loading/unloading made up for it.
