    Looks like you kept the chrome or has it been "darkened"?

    K-cars were based on the L-body chassis, and as much as I don't like most new cars, new challengers are sex with wheels

    Haven't touched the chrome yet (except for putting a magnet on it to confirm the plastic that lies beneath). The grill is one piece that pops in, so I'll see what he says on Saturday about painting it out and go from there.

    Stay tuned.....

    Cheers,

    Correct. The Horizon however was based on the French Simca.

    They are a bit too autosexual for my taste, that's all. But make no mistake, I like them, too.

    They're related to the VW Rabbit. -Adam
     
  7. Yep the K cars were more like the Plymouth Reliant and the Dodge Aries. A friend of mine had a Reliant. It was one of the worst cars I ever drove. But it may have just been that one.

    Probably just that one.
     
  9. Yeah, I kinda figured that. The guy who owned it never changed oil, or did anything as far as maintenance unless he absolutely had to. As long as it would start he'd drive it. (He bought a different car about every 6 months.)

    I don't feel sorry for the man, I feel sorry for the cars! Some people just shouldn't be allowed to sign a car title!

    Drove this home last night for $842.00 Needs engine work, no power, smoking, probably head gasket blown. 1992 4x4, 22re, 5 speed, no power options but AC. The aluminum flatbed is made out of bleacher seats. I bought it to flip it, but I love Toyota trucks so much it's going to be hard to let it go.

  12. Nice find youth, If I had more cash I'd love to get another one, I had an '87 Toyota king cab that absolutely refused to die. (300,000+ miles) If it hadn't been for the frame rusting in half I'd still be driving it. Personally I'd keep it and make a super bike hauler out of it.

    I'd keep it also, I need a truck to beat up.

    Yes, I've been watching Top Gear for many many years, wish they hadn't done the Yota specials, not because I care that they came so close to destroying one, but because they told everyone who didn't know how bulletproof they are, therefore running up prices. Evidently the guy who I just bought this one from has never seen Jeremy Clarkson. :mrgreen:

    That's from back before Dave got approved for his Adsense account, I was glad when he got it because he cleaned up the language in all his videos. Then they banned him, now that he's back without ad sharing, the bad language is back. :x

    Nice to see them not hacked up, I'm sure this one is hard to give up.
