The Old and the New

Shot some pics of my new '07 Tacoma next to my old '94 Pickup, enjoyed comparing them side by side to see what differences 13 years of development have brought to the table. Posted a couple of these in my intro but thought y'all might enjoy seeing a few more...

1994 Toyota Pickup 4x4 Extended Cab, 140K miles, 22RE five speed

VS

2007 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Access Cab, 10K miles, TRD Off Road, SR5, V6 six speed

great pics and welcome to TW. That 94 looks great should bring in good money to sink into the new mods.

Yeah, hopefully selling it to an employee for $5000. Might be able to advertise it and get a bit more but tough when book value is only like 3K. I put 31x10.50 Revos on it last year, rebuilt the front end this spring and installed new shocks, also replaced the radiator. It's solid as a rock, was undercoated when new and has rhino lining sprayed on the rockers and fender bottoms so no rust anywhere. I never see another one around here that's this clean, living in the rust belt and all.

For comparison, that '94 lasted longer than 1 canoe, maybe 2! Hah, he wore out a canoe before he wore out the Toyota

Looks like the 94 served you well. Someone will buy it and it will serve them well too. Nice trucks!

Great pics, and I love the '94......my favorite model all time. Mad rep 4 you!

You aren't far from me, wish I had some extra cash, I'd buy that baby off you in a heartbeat if it didn't sell to your employee.

Nice truck comparisons pics Sbeau! The 94 is a keeper.

I bought my first toyota pickup, an 87 4WD Xcab Turbo (22RET) when I was stationed at Ft. Ben Harrison. I had fun in Indy & brings back good memories. Wish you the best with the sale!

The 89-95 is still the best looking truck Toyota has built to date. They haven't got it right since.

Man, seeing pics of my old truck pop up makes me miss it! The new Tacoma is nice, but something about the smaller version is still attractive. Actually thinking about selling the '07 and finding a perfect '04 to trick out, think I might be happier with the size.

I love the 94! Kinda makes me wish I had an older Toyota Pick-up at times. Two damn good trucks there.
