Well folks here you have it, a completly stock, unmodified 1992 Toyota 4x4. Very hard to find one in this shape. Truck has had only 2 owners, myself and my elderly parents that bought the truck brand new. From day one this truck has never been smoked in and has had Ziebart rust protection applied to it that is why you see very little rust on this truck. In the pictures you will see some rust behind rear wheels and a spot on drivers side front fender over tire. The tailgate has some rust at bottom, but I had a piece of black aluminum bent and stuck it on with double sided tape to cover as you can see in rear view picture, looks factory but wanted to mention. As you can see in the picture of inside of bed it looks great, bed has always had a bed mat in it but I just took it out for the pictures and it will be included in sale. Truck has orignal paint but the 1992 factory strips were removed because they did not like them as well as the Toyota letters across the back of tailgate. The motor runs great and transmission shifts as it should. I just installed a new radiator and front brake pads, tires have over 50% tread left. The Leer cap could use a new paint job. The underside of truck looks good also,but that is because of the sprayed on rust protection. The interior is very clean also and everything works as it should. Folks you will not be disappointed in this 21 year old truck with 138,000 miles on it. Pictures just do not do this truck justice please come by and take a look at this beauty. The truck has normal rock chips and small dings as a 21 year old truck would that is driven every day. If you have any further questions ASK BEFORE BIDDING NOT AFTER. And as always with anything used your buying as is where is. Truck is pick up only no shipping. $250.00 deposit through pay-pal with in 24 hours. Remaining balance due when picking truck up. Cash or personal check ( check must clear my bank before truck will be released). Other arrangments can be made if you contact me first.

Turbocharging isn't really Toyota's specialty, and the Japanese automaker isn't being shy about acknowledging it. Koei Saga, a senior managing officer in charge of drivetrain research and development, says that eschewing turbos and increasing displacement of engines using the Atkinson cycle can produce better power gains without sacrificing fuel economy, Automotive News reports.

Toyota is investing heavily in larger-displacement Atkinson-cycle engines in addition to turbocharged engines, but Saga doesn't think the automaker will use turbocharging across many product lines. He apparently remains unconvinced that the technology "makes the world better."
In Toyota's eyes then, Atkinson cycle engines do make the world better, and here's how. Their pistons complete four processes - intake, compression, power and exhaust - in one revolution of the crankshaft, and the power stroke is longer than the compression stroke. Traditional Otto cycle engines require two crankshaft revolutions to accomplish those same four operations and have equal-length compression and power strokes. Atkinson cycle engines are more efficient, but less power dense, though increasing displacement can offset that shortfall.
In the past, if an automaker did something wrong, they were usually prosecuted by the US government through something called the TREAD Act. Short for Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation Act, it basically requires automakers to report recalls in other countries, along with any and all serious injuries or deaths, to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Failing to report or attempting to conceal anything when there's been a death or serious injury constitutes a criminal liability. The idea is that this setup puts the onus on manufacturers to keep NHTSA apprised of safety related issues before they become a problem in the US, thereby allowing the regulator to better protect consumers.
In theory, it sounds like a relatively airtight set of rules for dealing with misbehaving automakers. That didn't stop the US Department of Justice from ignoring TREAD in its prosecution of Toyota's handling of the unintended acceleration recall, though. The result of this new approach, which charged Toyota with wire fraud, was a $1.2 billion settlement. Now, the wire-fraud approach could be used for the expected case between the US government and General Motors, based on the statements of Attorney General Eric Holder, who specifically mentioned "similarly situated companies" when discussing Toyota.
The 91st running of the Pike's Peak International Hill Climb is scheduled to begin on June 30. Like last year's event, the 12.42 mile course - fully paved these days - starts at 9,390 feet elevation and doesn't stop climbing until it reaches an impressive 14,110 feet (the air is so thin up there that the FAA requires pilots to use oxygen at that altitude).
There will be an assortment of internal combustion machines racing to the summit, entries from France, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Sweden, Brazil, Canada, Great Britain, Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland and Belgium, but all eyes will be on the electric showdown between Rod Millen and Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima, from Japan. 61-year-old Millen is a familiar name to Toyota racing fans, and he will be driving the Toyota TMG EV P002 (it won the Electric title last year), while Tajima will be again piloting the Monster Sport E-Runner (which was forced out of the field last year after a fire broke out).
Other entrants include Rhys Millen driving a 2013 Hyundai PM58OT and Paul Dallenbach, who will be driving Millen's Hyundai Genesis Coupe (it set the all-time speed mark last year).
