    I believe its a 99. I think the 11th digit is the designation. i don't remember if "z" was 99 or 00.

    I *think* it's a 1995 3VZ V6 XtraCab PreTaco - probably 4WD / automatic.

    There's a remote chance it's a very early production 1995.5 Tacoma with the same spec's, except the engine would be a 5VZ instead of a 3VZ.

    The VIN scheme changed around 1995, and this VIN was pretty definitely assigned under the 'old' scheme.
