I bought a truck a few weeks ago for $900. It's an '87 Nissan D21 Hardbody shortbed. Two wheel drive, 5-speed, twin plug Z24 four cylinder, many miles, new tires, new clutch, runs like a clock.
Killer patina, some rust in the bed floor through which I lost about 150 pounds of playground sand, leaving another 350 or so to kind of fill the sandbox I made for Carlo. Otherwise nice and solid.
I really like it and plan on putting it to use for home improvement/parts hauling/mid-century modern furniture hunting/garage type project duty, but apart from coating much of the I-5 in pristine white sand, mostly it's just taken me to get coffee and croissants at the donut shop. And donuts.
