possibly the oldest toyota in the northeast :)
Considering the inflated prices out here that’s not a bad deal.

Leominster is a long way from Texas, TL1000R...

I have a '93 Ford Ranger 4x4 Splash model with 84K miles. Not perfect, but clean with no rust...I had to check YouTube to learn how to roll down the windows. Silly crank handles in each door make the windows go up and down...but you can do it with the key out of the ignition. Imagine that...But the side mirrors are power driven...go figure.

For years in Northern Arizona they used black volcanic cinders on the roads in the winter. About the size of pea gravel, it was non corrosive but hell on windshields. Now in the last few years they use a orange colored ice melt they claim will not hurt your vehicle. Don't see many rusted out wheelwells, but it's not kind to the pine trees when it melts and runs off the roads.

Yeah that Toyota's to nice for me would of liked to of gotten a hold of it before the restoration on it.

Job I had way back when we had mid 90's rangers as company vehicles, 4 bangers and they were horrible probably a mix of being a 4cyl and poor maintenance, hit a small hill on the highway and you'd lose 10mph even if you floored it.

You Jeep-aholics out there may want to check out Amazon Prime's Grand Tour, Season 3, Episodes 2-3 that just aired this week.

The idiot Brits had some interesting experiences with a Wrangler.
