I'm very glad I found this forum. I've been looking for a Tacoma forum for years, but Google never gave me your website until I started searching about the rust issue in the 1st Generation Tacoma. I guess I was using the wrong search terms. Oops!
Now a little about me. I'm the original owner of a 1997 Tacoma Xcab V6 2wd manual. I love my truck to death. I'm keeping it until it runs into the ground or until Toyota pries it from my hands because of rust. I go in next Friday to get the frame checked out, so hopefully I'll be coming home with my baby afterwards.
You don't see too many Tacomas in Northern VA....or at least I don't, so it's nice to find a forum where I can possible meet other Tacoma enthusiasts. I look forward to engaging with you all and hopefully learning a little more about my Tacoma.
