    I just got my first Tacoma. 2006 4X4 D-Cab sport pkg. I love this truck and was very excited when I got it. Went to work and got a bunch of crap from my boss. The guy told me that I should start parking in the back corner of our lot. We only have six cars in our lot (small company). He claims that if a potential customer sees my truck that they will not want to do business with us. What a bunch of bullshit!! We are a small manufacturing company, and have nothing to do with any automotive manufacturing so I just don’t get it. Not sure how to handle this and was just wondering if any of you guys have dealt with something similar to this because you drive a foreign truck.

    First of all, you do not drive a foreign truck. It was most likely made in California, or maybe mexico. Second, he is just giving you crap because he's jealous.

    That is really odd... all I can think of is... it isn't an american company. But, they do make some tacomas in the US. Ignorant people imo.

    I just get the "Nice Terrorist truck" but im in the army so 90% of the day is talking crap to one another. But yeah if your boss isnt kidding that sucks,I assume its because its non-american. Tacoma's are Assembled in the states so its not like they hurt the economy by buying a non-american car. Unless all your customers are coming in with White Hoods and Fords I dont think its gonna hurt business.

My Uncle happens to be a vet and so is my father and they both own toyotas...I dare ya to go tell them their un patriotic cause they'd knock your fuckin head off and then hand your ass to you in a paper sack...Then I said okay, go home and take your TV, DVD Player, Stereo, Coffee Maker and basically everything else he owned and to throw it away caue all that shit was made in a diff. country!!...I mean if were gonna buy "American" lets fuckin take it seriously! :laugh:
