My name is "OldManTan", but I am only 30!!

Hi Everyone!! I have been lurking around this forum for the three weeks since I bought my truck. It only seemed appropriate that I sign up. I am a new TW member and a first time Taco owner. After the STACK of repair receipts from my ZR2 ownership, I decided to give Toyota a try. I bought this truck as a sound, affordable, economical vehicle with the way the economy is and gas has been. It has about 51,000 miles on it and was under $13,000. I have to say that I don't love the color, but after owning all dark vehicles I am enjoying the "clean" look all the time. I never thought I would love a cap so much too!! While we were test driving it, my wife told me I aged 20 yrs and it was a grandpa truck. Well after I bought it, I renamed desert sand mica, to old man tan. Whats life if you can't laugh at yourself. I miss some of my "goodies" my old truck had, but I do LOVE this truck. Its the best when my 4wd gets 21.6 mpg, and I have been having fun with it. Can't wait to see what I get when I start behaving!! Thanks for all the great info, and I am glad to be a member.

Honestly if the economy was better, and gas never broke the $3 a gallon mark, I would have a access with a v-6. But with the chance of losing my job and everything, this truck is perfect for now. And everything points to it being a GREAT deal. It has one ding in it, and one chip thats starting to rust. I can take care of those, and it would be flawless. I am glad it is the least popular color, cause I got a great deal because of it. LOL A similar truck/mileage/no cap though, was going for $16000 by me.

xedge, had to look thru your photos to explain your name. Exactly what I figured. I have a 2003 edge 800. Same colors as yours, but not the edge X. Kind of figured you had to ride with a name like that and living in Vermont. Gotta love snowmobiling, keeps you going through the long winter months!
