    That makes sense, since you think of the California movie sets of old westerns when you think of Texas. Yosemite Sam is named after Yosemite National Park in California. He's a cool character though. My favorite's a toss up between him and Marvin the Martian. That ought to throw your psychoanalysis of me into a turmoil.

    Yep. Foghorn and Taz are tied for a close second for me. FL is best with that egghead nephew.

    I hate saying this but i agree, Taz and Foghorn are definately the best, especially with his nephew.

    Picked Up our 2007 Taco Access Cab SR5 with alloys 4x4 from Town Toyota and drove 600 miles back to Canada were We reside. Our truck had 2300 miles on it when we picked it up. On the drive back averaged 23-25 mpg through the mountains going about 65mph. Love the truck, compared to our Ranger its a Dream--what a difference and I've owned various domestic trucks they sure are crap build wise compared to Toyota. I was surprised how comfortable it is. More comfortable than our 07 WRX.
    Only complaint I have is the weird 4-5 gear shift change to control emissions why in the world was it designed to keep revving makes for akward upshifts. Is there anyway to fix this?
