Here is a car that I think is a rare car around where I live. I took this pic this morning

This came by me at about 85-90mph, looked to be in great shape.  Then promptly pulled over to the side of the road.

Awesome and hilarious.

I picked up my 325iX at the repair shop today, and this AMG SEC 500 was parked next to it.

That is beautiful! Back in the day this was bought out of the penny trader in Chicago for $1250 because it wouldn't pass emissions

You'd think there is a ton of those pre-merger AMGs left down here in soFlo, but they are gone. Probably most were crushed.

2wd 4 runners are rare by me and he knows it per the plate. It was the bumper sticker for me though.

You need someone who is a bit hippie-ish.

 

(they like outdoorsy vehicles with better fuel economy.  What did you think I meant?)

I overhead someone else talking about it, and they mentioned it had the Japanese-style bed.  From a little reading, I guess the Japanese beds had the hook rail on the side, and the two latch tailgate, while American style ones had smooth bed sides and single center handle on the tailgate.  I have no idea which one was more or less common, though.

I had one of these back in the day, i think the 2WD and lower spec trucks had the Japanese-style bed, and 4WD and higher spec trucks (Read SR5 option package with the sweet stripes) had the American style bed.  Here's an SR5 spec 2WD extra cab for reference
