My first truck was a 96 Tacoma. It was a stripper, no p/s, no a/c, no radio. $9988 as I recall. Beat the heck out of it for 60k miles and then traded it in for a Jeep Wrangler. Should have kept it.

It’s likely broken in now and good for another 500k.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.
