    we have a customer that has us buy these old toyos for body parts. He 'froads them and is always needing a door, hatch, hood, nose etc. when he wrecks em. He has us buy any that come through the auciton that don't go over $500. We figured it's prolly got a blown motor, thrashed tranny, but the body was good so we bid.

    Got it for the max $500 and went to pick it up on the trailer, and when I saw the mileage I was like WTF, jump it. Fucker started and we drove it home. Sputters and cuts a bit at freeway speeds, so hopefully it just needs a tuneup. Other than that runs like a champ.

    Customer says keep it he'll wait for a dead one, feels bad about taking parts from a good one.

    My new beater.

    Join up on an old Toyota forum and see what you could get for it? With low mileage like that you could get a decent chunk of change for it.
