1999 Toyota 4runner SR5
History Bought with 139K in Spring 2015 for $3,900. Totally abused and only had 1 quart of oil (wtf 5 quarts low) with broken oil sensor wire. Can't believe the motor wasn't blown, was actually able to run it another 30K before started using a ton of oil and smoking, then did a motor swap. Also had practically no antifreeze with hole in radiator and busted fan blades. Sunroof wouldn't close. Had a lot of novice wiring hack issues from some stupid alarm system.
But anyway, had a nice condition chassis and body with low mileage in salty Massachusetts which is hard to come by, and a bonus 5 speed.
I drive up to 1,000 miles per week, so miles rack up quick, I work it hard and hammer on it.

-Monstaliner on the bumpers and rockers in color-"Pyroplastic".
