My Cobra = totaled... but got a '99 Tacoma!
I had my last car - a 1996 Mustang Cobra (super clean, tastefully modded) for 8 yrs. That changed last week when I was rear-ended by a Wrangler doing approx. 45 MPH... totaled.
When I told my uncle what happened, he offered to sell me his almost 300k mile 1999 Tacoma (SR5 ext cab, 2WD, 5 spd) for $700... and I, of course said yes! I always liked his truck, and having just purchased my first house, I was wanting a truck even before the wreck. It's dark red with the black 14" steelies and beauty rims, a billet grill, and dark tint all around. Mechanically, this thing is perfect - he's an engineer and he really kept on top of the maintenance.
The only thing it needs (soon) is tires. It has 215/70/14's right now, but I was thinking of putting on some 225/70/14's... this shouldn't be a problem, right? Also, is 300k miles pretty high for these trucks? I know of the legendary toughness/reliability... anyways, I'm off to use the search function, but any help and/or pics of the 225's would be much appreciated!
