Why is everyone talking TRUCK when a car is less in money?
I would look for a hatchback or 4 door (when it comes to insurance then a 2 door will be costly as some look upon that as a SPORT car). Probably some good buys out there in the early 90s with not a great deal of milage & probably some minor fender-benders or patched up ones. Look at the Nissan, Toyoto or if you have Mazda in your area, then look at them as well.
Problem with an older non-American truck is you are paying the extra for TRUCK & in those days so many were with small boxes & you cannot stuff a sporsbike in the rear. I have measured my 4X4 Mazda truck & I could not stuff the 600 in it, let alone the 929. So look around for a CAR. For you are looking for four wheel transportation & to 'ell with appearances, speed, etc. You just want it to get you from A to B & back again, in the winter months, & not break down.
