    That was done a few years ago and in subsequent series the remnants of that truck were on a large board on the set for all to see

    I owned an 82 and if it hadn't been stolen I would still be driving it. Built like a tank - rode like a tank. Ever notice that it seems to be the vehicle of choice for the fighters in Afghanistan. Thought about buying a new model but wonder if it would be as good.

    I have an '88 4Runner that I bought new for $12,000. By 4Runner standards, this truck is just getting broken in (215,000 miles). Unfortunately, the drive train will be around a lot longer than the body. The steel they used is poor grade, at best....

    Toyota's are like the old Timex Marlin watches. They will take a licking and keep on ticking.

    Pretty amazing...

    I killed my toyota camry @ 121K. Engine blew a head gasket, had it repaired, blew another head gasket. 5K later, I could have had a nice down payment for a new car.
