Requisite first post

Had my '96 Splash since it had 0.4 miles on it. She's got 275k now and a few things are starting to complain. Have a slight rear end hum, the AC compressor is dead, and she leaks a small amount of oil. Of course, she needs some body work too, from someone backing into her in a parking lot. Other than that she's still going strong and gets the same gas mileage (19/24) that she did when she was new.

But, I'm thinking it's time to retire her from being a daily driver and turn her into a project vehicle. So that's why I'm here; to get info and ideas to resurrect my trusty truck and give it a second life.

275k ?
Pawn it of on a highschooler who needs some cheap transportation and could use some experience wrenching.

Nope. I like it, and it will be fun to tinker with it.

Exactly, Ranger4.0!

I've had it since it was sitting in the dealer's showroom, and they were annoyed with me that it was the only truck on the lot I would buy, and they had to get it out of the showroom on an Easter Sunday afternoon. :D It's not worth much to sell it as-is, it will be more fun to keep it and tinker with it.

I'm hoping to find a good you-pull-it in this area for starters. Need to replace the tailgate and the front bumper.
