I bought my first Tacoma this month. It's a black 2006 Double Cab, long box. I don't have a big budget for lifts, tires, a sound system and all the things I'd like to add to the truck. But I am a photographer so I'd like a thread to post photos and document the modest stuff I do change.
Prior to the Tacoma I owned a 1993 T-100. I bought it in 1995 and this photo is scanned from a print I made in 1999.
This is the T-100 in October 2011. I took good care of it so it hadn't changed much from when it was new.
This photo of the Tacoma was taken during the test drive in April 2012.
Last week conditions were right to grab a decent photo of the Tacoma.
That's my constant companion in the back seat. She's a 3 yr. old Labradoodle named Rasha.
I said it would be a modest build. Here's my first mod, the thing I feel naked without in any truck, a convex mirror.
I stopped at the Canadian Tire store right down the street from the Toyota dealership when I drove away with the new truck.
Mods on the horizon:
flat black badges- I bought the Plasti-Dip last week
Raider Cobra cap with Thule Aero roof racks and headliner- it's on order
Tires- I have owned 3 sets of Michelin LTX A/T2's and plan on another set soon
Well, that's it for now. I hope to be adding many more photos.
