I bought a 1987 Mazda B2000 for my 21st birtday, in Sept. 1986. A friend’s dad liked it so much he bought one too. My stepdad and my brother’s fiancee both bought Mitsubishi Mighty Max that year. Compact trucks were everywhere, and I wish we had more of them.

I learned to drive in a 1986 GMC S-15 with the thunderous 2.8L V6 churning out a whopping 115 HP.  It went 0 to 60... sometimes.

It’s still running 30 years latter and has 130k on it and all I’ve done is adjust the valves around 80k. So it’s been good to me.

I 100% do NOT hate the teal color with pink swoosh! Maybe not 100% on the swoosh....but more cars need bright colors these days, the teal would look awesome! I mean....I am not a fan of Toyota’s CH-R....but it looks very cool in teal with a white roof!

I think you should just keep taking more stuff off of it. Simplify and add lightness. Because race car or something. Read more

This is definitely a place that understands your irrational love of an old econobox and the extraordinary lengths you’re going to put more love in it. Read more

Spend as much money as you want (within reason, don’t go broke modifying or restoring an economy car). Read more

A quick search on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace shows values of the first gen Scion xB have hit rock bottom. Putting any money into this car doesn’t make sense from a financial standpoint—it’s unlikely I’ll ever get any of that money back. Read more

Oh, awesome! I really loved your ‘memory’ Scion video....it struck a cord with the way I feel with my bare-bones, basic Korean crapbox...i.e. my 2009 Hyundai Accent hatch with no options, affectionately known as ‘Humdrum’ :)

Looking forward to this one! :)
