Hey all!!! Great Site and loving all the info I'm getting. $4 clunkers is how I came to my 09 4x4 LB Tacoma Sport, Sorta. Ok I give you a little background info. Here's how it went down(over several years).
When my hobby of carpentry started making me more money than selling real-estate I decided I needed a truck. My Acura TL wasn't cutting it and I really wish I some picts of it loaded with my tools and 12' lumber through the truck hole and out the back.
Anyway I couldn't afford one so I got a 1,2,3, party owned Range Rover with a 100k and it was great... When the door locks worked and the back gate would decide to work(It has an electric lock gate and once I helped a friend move a 36" tube TV and the Gate wouldn't open. He had to wait for a week till the gate decided to work. LOL)
So 60k miles later $4 Clunkers comes out and I trade it in for my Tacoma.
Also my RR had a $1800 oil leak, $900 A/C problem, not a body panel with w/o a dent or scratch and not to mention the unfixable electrical problem.
As for the thread title my 7 year old called it that the first time he saw it. I asked him why and he said "Cars have four doors and pickups have two so it must be a pickup car!!!!!"
