Being a 4Runner fan myself, I was particularly drawn to Bill Morgans immaculate 1985 4Runner powered by a 3.4 liter V6 from a 3rd Generation 4Runner.

It actually has no 1985 parts in it though.
Oh wait, the CVs are from an 85. It's an 85 then. Or something.

Years. As far as I'm concerned it's Number-of-Years-To-Collector-Plates. The rest is just to get the right part from Jerry.
