Is it possible that all the affordable project cars are now taken?

Not just with Mopars either, I’m also into Japanese cars/mini trucks and the prices are through the roof. I’m looking for a clean 2wd 85-88 Toyota pickup. $8k+ for anything that doesn’t need paint with a manual transmission. I don’t think they cost that much new!
Ahhh the Back to the Future Toyota pickup truck that had the famous 22-RE engines. Those are great trucks.
