    1998 Tacoma SR5 Special Edition
    Nadda, except mags
    Hello,
    I just purchased a used 1998 black Tacoma SR5 4x4 Special Edition from a local guy that had just a few months ago brought it up from the States. Yes, that's right, those lovely rust free States of America. This one spent most of its time in California and once I crawled under the truck to check for rust I was tempted to go get my lunch and eat it off the frame rails. Immaculate. As soon as I drove my soon to be new buggy I figured out immediately why the young guy was selling it. It is a 2.7l automatic and it is underpowered. For me, I don't care about that. It is spectacular looking and gets superb gas mileage. The tan interior is spotless, not a rip. The sun roof is excellent to look up and see the mountains while driving. I can't believe I have waited this long to get one of these beautiful trucks. I have already figured out how to cancel those automatic door locks and the annoying chirping sound from the stock alarm settings. To be able to purchase the truck I had to sell my Suzuki Sidekick and two vintage Gibson acoustic guitars but I'm very happy and it was worth it.
