She doesn't miss the 4Runner at all.

Good looking out, but the mileage is pretty heavy.

Old user name that started as a joke back in my AE86 days. Came up with the most ridiculous Japanese sounding "drift name". At the time, adding "pretty" in front of just about anything made it Japanese.

Hence, it stuck.

Car Info: 2004 Big Booty STi with a two finger gap.
Cars for Sale: 2004 Subaru Forester 2.5XT in San Leandro, CA 94577: Sport Utility Details - 334413201 - AutoTrader.com


I'm considering this..... 140k+ but... As long as the maintenance has been done that's not *that* high for a Subaru... Price seems pretty good and I have a ton of take-off parts from my 04 STi...

In a 2007 Toyota FJ and the gas mileage is killing me. I don't really *need* the FJ and I'm so busy that I have only taken it off road a few times since I bought it two years ago.....

Its an auto but I commute so much I would actually prefer it. I had a 98 Fozz that I sold to buy the FJ so.....


Someone, talk to me! Haha!

Like he said. Go go go. I pretty much gave away my 4Runner to get this new Fozz instead of a FJ, Tacoma, Tundra. The day we were taking delivery another guy w/ GF/Wife traded his SpeedwayBlue lifted Tacoma in. Ever since the trail-queen shut down most of the Sierra's I found myself traveling and wheeling/adventuring less and less.

DO IT.

I can see that, my old handle's still "Obiyashi" in most Toyoda circles. I saw the screen name and immediately saw MK3 instead of reading it as leet [m1ke].

Hence, it stuck.

I won't hold it against you.

Speaking of MK3... I owned a Mk4 Jetta for a while. I was a big VW guy for about 5-6 years.
