What is your ultimate beater/gas saver, and why?
Criteria: Must be under $5000. Must be a CAR/TRUCK you can drive with a Class C license. No bicycles, motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, etc.
Given the current gas prices in CA right now, and my 14mpg city, I was tossing around the idea of picking up a beater/gas saver to commute with and keep the Taco as a weekend warrior. I live in a house with 4 drivers, 5 cars, and 2 motorcycles...so it probably wont happen, but hey nothing wrong with dreaming right?
Started checking out craigslist. I want to stay within the imports, so of course Camry, Corolla, Tercel, Toyota PU, etc came to mind. Found this guy...looks promising and for that price, I'd pick it up in a heartbeat if it really gets 38mpg.
