    Anyone near Burbank to help out a possible new Tacoma owner?
    I'm looking to buy a first gen 1996 Tacoma, and I was wondering if any of you experienced Tacoma guys out there would be willing to help me out looking at a possible truck to purchase. This will not only be my first Tacoma, but this will be my first used car purchase ever! So if there's anyone in that area that wants to help me out, checking out the truck and whatever, let me know! I would feel way more confident if I had someone who knew what they were doing looking this over with me. I know to look for rust in the frame, and I read the used buyers guide, but I'm not really a car guy (yet), so any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys!

    Here's the add:

    Also; I might be looking at other possibilities, such as this

    and this

    I'll update as I know more though, thanks again.

    Dig the black one but that white access cab is pretty nice too. Sorry I'm not local though. Best of luck on whatever you choose.

    Well apparently the first two sold, and the third one isn't returning my calls...I was hoping to get a 4 banger for the better mpg anyways, but it is disappointing.....
