HMC Exclusive: Randy Potter and the 1998 Toyota Tacoma

This might sound like an upcoming J.K. Rowling sequel, but what we have today is another amazing HMC exclusive. This time from Florida. HMC reader Randy Potter wanted to get into the high-mile game, so he went and bought himself a 1998 Toyota Tacoma with 452000 miles already on the clock. Randy represents a unique sort of high-miler. Instead of piling on the miles from scratch, he’s inheriting a high-miler. I think it’s a bold move and one that we hardily approve of. He says the truck is in good condition and still runs like new. His mechanic says there really isn’t much work needed on it.  He plans to use it for daily commuting and weekend fun. He eventually hopes to pass it along to his daughter.  I’m hoping for great things from Randy and his Tacoma. We’ll follow their story closely here at HMC.   Keep us updated Randy.

  1. Hey Jason,

    There may be a typo in the post – did you mean to say 452,000 miles, rather than “45,200 miles?”
