    I think that Toyota was paid a visit by extraterrestrial beings in 1979 and were given the engineering plans to develop what we all know and admire as the 1980 to 1989 Toyota Truck and its related platforms.

    No human being could have possibly engineered a mass-market truck with this kind of endurance in the late '70s.

    I find it funny that the tagline for the new Nissan Titan is "Endurance". Toyota has 20+ years on them with that attribute.

    I destroyed mine. Lowerend knock.

    the 22RE gas engine is a great engine, but the diesels are a different beast. Just like the MB Deisels. My friend has one that developed this NASTY knock (Like a hammer hitting the block) about 7 months ago and it still fucking drives. He actually bought my Celica from me (The one that George7777 deep sixed) and that Mercedes outlived the Celica despite being in a constant state of throwing a rod.
