The Coquihala is pretty much the hardest thing you can ask a vehicle to tackle in BC, loonng hills with most people doing 120km/h+. So while we were going 90-100km/h, sometimes 80 up the really long hills, the little truck did it all without getting hot. It did take like 7 or 8 hours to go 450km, what with all the slowness and stopping to check on the coolant and oil, but still, it did it.
I’m pretty proud of it, considering it’d been sitting for 4 years prior to this. I even passed a couple people! One of them was even uphill! Today I’ll likely do a compression test, and a lot of cleaning and vacuuming to get the interior in acceptable shape.
