Exactly this! We drove a 1982 two wheel drive Toyota until it fell apart around us. I'd love to have another one for running around town, but now that I'm packing around kids I'd also like to have all those safety options... like ABS, and airbags. » 8/27/14 11:48am 8/27/14 11:48am

I recommend checking in with your local Community/Junior college. For a hundred bucks or so you can usually get professional grade instruction in the welding arts. As an added bonus you may get to work on your own stuff as a class project. » 8/20/14 6:46pm 8/20/14 6:46pm
