1987 Nissan Pickup
Summer, 1994

I traded my father a computer for this truck, so I could have something to drive around town after the Festiva died.

This truck actually does have a lot of history. When I moved to Spokane Washington in 1996, I left the truck and was going to come back for it. That same weekend my sister had a car wreck and was left carless. She drove the tires off the truck while I was gone, putting around 50,000 miles on it in a year and a half I believe. When I came back, the truck was right around 170,000 miles. I drove it a couple of times while we were moving, and then parked it after that. I eventually sold the truck for $1000 to my wife's cousin. It's still alive and running fine! No modifications were done to this truck either, although some safety ones probably should have.

One time my wife took this truck in to Wal-Mart to get it inspected. Not only would they not inspect it, but they offered to call her a cab and really didn't want her to drive it home. Instead, we peeled a safety inspection sticker off of a different car and stuck it on the truck. So there.

Note: My wife's cousin recently sold this truck to a friend of his. At last date, it had 260,000 miles on it. Should've kept it.
