Everyday Hero: 1998 Toyota 4Runner

Most cars have haters. The fast and sporty (Mustang, the Corvette, the 911) have people who love ’em and people who hate them, and the same goes for the slow workhorses of the automotive world (Beetle, Dodge Ram, etc). But there are a few make/models that might not be universally loved, but they go about the business of being a horseless carriage in such an admirable way that you can’t hate them…and the 90s Toyota 4Runner is a wonderful example of that paradigm. Find this 1998 Toyota 4Runner offered for $6,000 in Napa, CA via craigslist.
