Wheeeee

I'm working a deal with my Dad to buy his (my old) Mazda B2200. (My first pickup). It needs more work than the Ford does, but it sips the fuel, instead of guzzling. Its carburated instead of EFI, and it needs the top end rebuilt, it blows blue, and the lifters tick. It also needs front rotors & brakes, and a rear brake line replaced, and needs new tires all around. I've smoked them a few times too many..... But she is my baby, and I love that truck...

As long as it gets you from A to B and back all is good. If it is running the work can be slowly completed. Plus all the money saved in fuel can help with up keep.

Looks like a cool little truck.

I thought the 6 cylinders were supposed to be good on fuel though!
