    Hey everyone, this is probably the dumbest question on this forum but does anyone know why Toyota chose "4Runner" as its name? Because it's "4-running offroad?" I've heard theories but noone knows the truth!

    simplicity is sometimes the best, like the Olds 442: 400 cubic inch, 4 barrel 2 doors...
