    73 here and driving my new 2017 Tacoma Quicksand 4WD Off Road. Sold a 2005 Dodge Ram 4WD when I bought the Tacoma. My other cars are a 2009 Dodge Challenger (hemi orange) 6-speed manual and a 69 Dodge Charger (red) 440-4speed.
    My only complaint about the Tacoma is the way the auto trans shifts. I've learned to keep my foot on the throttle to keep the rpm's up. I think Toyota dropped the ball on the way they set up the auto trans shifting patterns. Would have bought a manual but the wife and daughter don't like manuals and they need to be able to drive the Tacoma on occasion.

    odd looks being because of age OR NOT DRIVING A "Detroit" truck?

    I swear I have gotten looks and even a heckling once at the gas station filling up by some drunk looking dude cruising around the gas lot in a beat up S10 or Ranger

    I am not quite 50yet but when I do I might just get one of those sharp new Corolla hatchbacks or used if a manual available assuming my neck able to bend into it while getting in

    My first Toyota pickup was a ‘75 hilux, my second was a new 1979 4x4, then a 1999 Taco that was totaled after 6 years so I bought a 2005 Taco and replaced it last year with a 2018 SR5. I plan on keeping for at least 15 years. I will be 72 in June. There is absolutely nothing wrong with old men staying young by driving cool trucks.:)

    All my previous trucks were manual transmission, which my wife refused to drive.

    Well how far over 50 are you looking for? I'm 66 and just bought my second Toyota pickup. My first was a 1981 SR5 4x4 Hilux. Then I had a few assorted 4Runners and now a 2018 TRD Off-Road. When the need for speed hits - we take the wife's Mustang GT. We are still both active and just finished a snowshoeing trip in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

    Looks like the new Mustang has the speed the 1st year out of the barn in NASCAR. I think they will win more races this year again than Toyota and chebby.
