    Default My new truck



    Hey everyone, I just got a commuter vehicle. It's a 1976 Toyota Pickup. It's kind of a beater, but it'll be waaaaay cheaper than driving my Blazer around to work and back every day.

    You gonna keep the rack and such? Power steering is over rated.. My rover is the first vehicle of mine that had Power steering!

    I think I'm going to sell the rack. It's worth about $515 brand new, and it's in great shape... looks hardly used.

    Excellent!

    Just remember to steer with your feet once in a while. You don't want to build up the upper body and neglect the lower. :fing:

    For some reason I feel you should paint zebra stripes on it
