NMNA. Apparently old small Toyota trucks are the new 911s of the auction world according to Hagerty. That might be an exaggeration I just made up. So for $500 here is an 1983 Toyota truck.

And here is the click-bait article.

Or you could just stay at home for $500.

How I'm not banned from this site I don't know. I really should work harder so I could just buy these instead.

Not a lot of pictures, but that looks well worth $500.

Not being a ranger fan, and knowing how insanely rugged a 22r is, I'd go the Toyota route. These price increases started 15 years ago with the 85 4runner. I owned one. Go look at what they go for now. It's a 1 year special.

The problem with the Toyotas is how badly the frames and beds rust. Sure other vehicles do too, but how many other vehicles have frame recalls on them?

LOL, true. Kinda like Subaru with brake lines. US trucks are as bad as Subaru but don't give a hoot about safety.

They might be on to something. I would rather have this than to have my 911 back.

Next you are going to tell me I should have bought the 60s Jeep Gladiator my uncle let rot behind the cabin in Ontario for $100 when I was 16.

In reply to Huckleberry:

This gen of Toyota truck is one of my saved Craigslist searches.
