    Builds George - 1983 Pickup SR5 Long Bed

    Giving an old Toyota a new life is wildly rewarding. I know, I know. Most of you already knew this, but as much fun as fixing up our Cruiser has been, saving this Pickup has been oddly more satisfying. It couldn't replace our Cruiser, by any stretch, but it's scratching an itch I didn't even...
