I own a 1986 Toyota pickup, base model, with 95,000 original miles. It came with nothing. I purchased it new in 1986 for $5850. It needed nothing the first 10 years, then I had to replace the rotors and calipers. In 30 years, I spent $2800 on repairs and part replacement. And it is QUICK. It lays wheels all thru 1st, all thru 2nd, and 'Twerps" going into third. It burns no oil. I once didn't change the oil for 5 years, and never had to add a drop. Only problem is rust. But it is inspected and is my main and only transportation. It never once left me stranded. It has always started.

Sounds like you need a sports car. I added a Boroa exhaust, better wheels, even a race interior and pedals on one of my full sizes. In the end it's still a truck. It can lay rubber, but what if someone saw me? I would be embarrassed as it is still a truck.

If someone in a $55,000 tank truck saw you lay wheel, they would be jealous... Someone in a Maserati would be baffled why you beat them off the line. My 86 is all stock.

What does "lays wheels" mean?

Any old stickshift pickup with an empty bed and bald rear tires can lay rubber. Not hard at all.

Would you still be embarrassed if the truck was a 1990 1500 with the SS 454 package?

Maybe time to buy the twin turbo Ford 2017 F Series. Love the Boss looking stripe package in white.

Why, do you have something against Chevrolet vehicles?

Those old Toyota trucks are damned near indestructible. My Dad also owned one, an '87, and it just ran and ran and ran forever, and lord knows we took pretty lousy care of it too. That's why these days the prices for vintage Toyota trucks has skyrocketed through the roof.
