Wow, jealous. Nothing in this part of the world that old is rust-free. Heck, even finding one still running is uncommon...

Its the one good thing about living in the desert. We are so dry that nothing really rusts if taken even moderate care of (we do use de-icer stuff here in the winter but no salt)

the truck was in nice condition, not perfect but nice. Unfortunately it went for an eye popping $10,500. About $3000-4000 over what it is worth.

A bit?! It was hella expensive. I have no idea what that guy was thinking. For that money my brother is willing to part with his 2000 with the 24v cummins with only about $90k miles on it. Weird.

About a month ago I saw a guy driving a new looking HiLux on the freeway in Georgia. Got no idea how he got it here, but there's at least one of them. Maybe he's willing to sell it? Should have followed him and asked about it.
