Got my 1995 toy pickup from an elderly customer in 2010 for $2800.  They drove it locally and only had 36k when I got it.  Sweet :smt007
It now has a total of 64k .  Not bad for a 20 yr old toyota pickup. 
I have an ex co-worker that have the end of 1995 Tacoma model that has maybe 40k on it.  Been bugging her to sell to me but no luck yet.
My point is they are out there.  I will keep an eye out on my route for you Martin.
I'll give you 3k right now. :smt003 What's your address, Ill be right there.. :smt044  :smt003. Seriously though...

I purchased mine for about $18,000 out the door and put about $3,000 into it for the camper shell, bluetooth, roof racks and upgraded but incognito speakers. 2005 Tacoma Pre-Runner, 4 door, 75,000 miles. The mechanic I took it to after said it was in the best condition he's ever seen for a used Taco.

It now has about 96,000 miles and is running great. Like people have said, it's a pain in the butt to find a good deal (took me about 5 months), but they're out there.

I was looking for the same thing around Dec of 2013... used on craigslist and such were all V6, 4WD, giant tires and off-road gear that I just didn't need. A buddy who is a mechanic for Toyota in Rhonert Park suggested looking for the 'used certified' Tacoma Trucks via dealerships... found quite a few, ended up with a low mileage 2010 (20k miles, $16k) that was formerly a fleet vehicle for some company. Great warranty, no-frills model (base model, 4 cyl, no power windows/locks, automatic, rear-window slides open, crew-cab). $1800 for a camper shell after the fact, and I'm thrilled with it. Clean, easy, I look forward to running it into the ground.

The search is complete.  I bought a new one today at Dublin Toyota.  It's being transferred from Santa Cruz and should be available by Monday.  The price of new vs used is crazy.  The value retention on these trucks is just unbelievable.  The other benefit to buying new is the first 2 year's maintenance is included and you get the benefit of a new car warranty.  The totaled Hyundai had amazing value retention.  At 5 years old and 72,000 miles, the insurance company paid $6300.  The car was the "advertised special" and I paid $6999 brand new, 5 years ago.  I think the same car now sells for about $14000 new.  Hyundai is is no longer the cheapest car you can buy.

It's the cab with the jump seats.  4 banger with automatic. The Prerunner with the 4 only comes with auto.  Got the SR5 package which includes blue tooth, back up camera and a few other whistles and bells.

Hope it didn't cost you an arm and a leg  :smt003

If he had gotten the V6 4x4, then it would cost at least an arm. But, a back-up camera?...that would work for me.

Got a great deal and Geoff is going to have to pay me back.   I'm just being the bank in the transaction.
