    Well the k5's gas milage is eating my wallet up real fast, so i have been looking for a little used comutter car, to drive back and forth to work,and run errands with.

    Still have the k5, would never sell it. but its time to park it for a little bit, and seeing as how it needs a little work done on it, no better time than the present.


    now don't laught too hard..


    i bought a 1983 toyota supra, it has 68,876 orginal miles on it, and i'm the third owner, the guy i bought it off of has owned it since 1986. He recently got married and he had two cars and his wife has two cars. so they didn't have room for 4 cars, and it has been sitting locked up behind a gate at his work for a few months now. it averages 28mpg..thats a lot better than the k5's 6mpg...
    its nothing to brag about, but hey...i only paid $100 cash for it..

    Sweet . you can't go wrong with a toyota ( i have 3) . Those inline 6 bangers can be a pain to work on but they last for every . Just don't over heat it . changing head gaskets suck on those cars . I like the celicas with the same body but with the 22r 4 banger . If we didn't have the MR 2 I would try to find a nice one . Now with all the money you save on gas you can go 4 wheeling more often :D .
