I Am Actually Tempted To Buy This Diesel Toyota Camry-amino

It's really quite sad, the demise of the trucklet in this country. The El Camino and Ford Ranchero are long gone, and the Pontiac G8 Sport Truck was euthanized before it could go down with the brand. Even the "small" trucks that Toyota or Ford or Nissan used to make aren't so small anymore, and car-based trucks like the Baja never found a mainstream audience.

So if a trucklet is what you want, you have to go out and make it yourself. That's what this intrepid person did in Durham, North Carolina, by transforming an otherwise staid 1986 Toyota Camry into a pickup truck. You may lose a backseat, but you gain an obscene amount of utility.

This seller even had the good foresight to swap in a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine (of unspecified origin) for extra haulability. How can you go wrong with a diesel Camry truck? You can't, that's how. Don't even try.

Seller's asking $4,500. Any takers out there? Snatch it up before I do.

My X-type is too a real Jaguar

I found a Tercel-amino in a local pull a part a few months back the Camry-amino is cooler. Yes I took pictures because I knew no one would believe me.
