Re: mazda b2200 truck
I had (and am still part owner) of a 93 B2200. Short bed, gray SE-5 package, 5-speed with A/C. This was the last year of the "true" Mazda-made truck.
Sure it's slow, but just deal. They are tough little trucks and will last a long time, and you'd be surprised how much 95hp can haul. Sometimes they smoke in winter on startup. This is almost normal, and don't be alarmed. They are known to do this for literally hundreds of thousands of miles. I switched to a high-mileage oil, and all is well. If the carb is fine, don't mess with it. Don't drive it hard, because it's just not meant for that...
If you keep it stock, spend about $100-150 and get some new shocks. Best investment I ever made in it, and it is very easy to do yourself.
I wish you could still buy a nice little simple no b/s truck like this. I love 'em!
