    I found a 91 80 with 200k miles that runs really well, body in really good shape..just needs a front bumper and a little TLC for $3500. Probably be able to get it for even less.
    Should I get another?

    The answer to that question is almost always "Yes". So, yes, you should. :D

    Funny man...

    My mom is VERY partial to the 55 series, and my 45 wagon and pickup...

    No idea who that might be. Do not know any 'old ladies' that own 40's, just young, hip ones.... ;)

    So, back to the topic of getting another truck....

    Did you score that 80 series?

    I think you are correct....

    I am not aware of any cheap transpo right now...

    Found out that the head is NOT CRACKED on the 4runner, that made me happy, so that should be back next week, and hopefully, I can get that 4runner back on the road...

    As much as I'd like to have another and as much as I absolutely agree that mo' is betta'...I gotta pass on this one, no time for another at the moment.

    If anyone is interested in this one let me know. I tried to call the place after I went by the other day and the number is bad so I can't pass along a phone number. It's in the Atlanta area...Decatur specifically and only a short way from my house. I'll be glad to get someone in contact with the guy that it'll give it a good home.
