1979 Toyota Pickup — After I made the mods to her, living near the beach of Ft. Lauderdale, we used to park her in he sand and party in the cargo bay. She was very dependable and I used to laugh while the 'big boys' got stuck in stuff I'd go through with ease.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: When I got her, she was the standard 2 wheel drive version... After I lifted her 9 inches, put a set of 44's on her and turned her into a 4WD model... she walked thru the mud with ease.
Very dependable ride

Cons: I don't have her anymore....
