interests cars 1984 toyota sr5 pickup

This car was almost a spur of the moment purchase.
I needed a vehicle that could carry a moderate sized load and a large dog.
The advertised "sportyness" and affordability of this truck caught my eye.

This truck helped us make the transition from California to Oregon.
Although we kept the car for 9 years, its last years were in agony.
It didn't make the transition to a rainy seaside climate very well.
It rusted from all directions and then began to leak... growing mushrooms in the carpet.
I ended up selling it to a junk yard for parts.

Owned: 31 May 1984 - 16 June 1993
