22re Toyota pickup vs vw Baja bug


Well-Known Member
Do the truck. I inherited a 1986 Toyota pickup farm truck. I beat the bejusus out of it. I see a lot of 80mph+ freeway and fast country road driving. Unless you pony up for an aftermarket transaxle, the 5 speed of the Toy is miles ahead. Besides the utility of the bed, the wheel base of the truck is also a big advantage.
Still, I'd love to have an ex Class 5 Baja, with a 5sp. transaxle on the street, painted red.
