1992 Toyota 4WD 3VZE-powered Delux Truck "Sluggo Thu Mule"

My daily driver. 186/500k on the clock. More dents than I can count. Been X country 4 times now (3 w/ me behind the wheel, quickest was 1st trip from DC to work @ Mammoth Mountain Ski School, CA…2715 miles in 4 days of a 5 day planned trip. F it!, I want to ski! …so I made it to cousin’s casa in Denver in 2 days @ 3am, and work 2 days later. 2nd trip: 3650 miles back home Mammoth Lakes, CA 2 Vienna, VA…the scenic route Mammoth N to Idaho some motel there, Jackson Hole, WY 2nd day/night, 3rd day to Jellystone w/ 8+ rolls of film burnt for excellent pix in a throw away camera, then slept with friend at a rest stop in South Dakota the next night, spent the entire next day at Sturgis which we went to on accident (sweet!), spent the next night 1 hr east of Notre Dame, Indiana, and back to Jake’s mom’s house in THE Armpit of America, aka Troy, NY, then there 2 nights and home to Vienna, VA the next night. 3rd trip was 3600 miles, skied my way x country, rode my barely street legal racebike Honda Hawk NT650 through Tale of the Dragon in NC, skied 5 days free @ Copper Mountain, CO… couldn’t resist it and skied Aspen Highlands at a discount through 16” of fresh pow and a freebie lift ticket from their ski school, skied Slowmass, and drove ALL night to motorcycle racing friend’s couch in So. CA the next morning @4am. What a great trip! … back to teach skiing Feb 2005-Aug 22nd 2005, shattered femur, cracked pelvis (oops!) getting cutoff going into a corner on my bike by a duechebag on a CBR1000RR who I made PROMISE “no passing in corners, OK?”…flew home and best friend Jesse “Go Big” drove her back home to VA for me 1 month later…. Need to rebuild power steering pump and eventually put a Supra Turbo mill in it w/ a gearbox adapter plate to have a 600+hp STILL 4WD truck so it will be more fun to drive till I put 36’s etc on it and eventually bury it when the clock rolls over to 500,000 miles. (I’ll buy a 3 series soon enough for better gas mileage as 15-18 mpg is expensive!…and a 328 is a better track toy!)
