My 2000 Mazda B2000 Pickup

I’ve owned or leased a lot of different vehicles over the last 40+ years and this 2000 Mazda B2000 pickup truck is in my top 5 favorites.  I now really wish I had bought it at the end of the 39 month lease, it was a fun ride.  It would still look as good as in the pic, which was taken just before I turned it in.

It was a “Gentleman’s Pickup”.  I did favors with it for relatives and friends but told them it doesn’t go to the dump, and doesn’t haul manure.  The reality was that even being only a 2 wheel drive, it was a gas guzzler, streets or highway.  Best I ever got was 15 mpg, in the summer, and winter gave me only 13 mpg.  So I had to let it go.
