My 1987 Toyota PU was my first new vehicle. I still drive it daily, 130,000 mils so far. I replaced the timing chain tensioner and adjusted the valves that's it. It's been a wonderful little truck. I have loved it for 20 years and counting.

I love my 1987 Toyota pickup. It's freaking awesome; it's only got 100k miles and is in mint condition, 1 owner only. I bought it for $2000 and it's the best investment ever!

Last year I bought a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Sport, and was very disappointed when I compared it to my 'yota. Yeah it's little and has next to nothing in power, but it's so fun to drive and clean up; not a dent, ding, scratch, nothing! I was so amazed when I bought it; the only thing I had to do was change the plugs.

The truck was great I got it when it had 87,000 miles on it. It was stolen when it had 110,000. When it was stolen everything on it worked perfect. During the time I had it, it worked almost flawlessly. I liked it so much I replaced it with a 96 Toyota truck!
