    I ordered a new Speedway Blue Taco on 1 Oct 08 with the expectation of getting it around the end of Nov. That was updated to around Christmas and then the end of Jan 09. I was not happy with waiting that long so I decided to get a Magnetic Grey Metallic that the dealer had in stock. I picked it up on Saturday. It has to share the driveway with my old Frontier until the new owner picks it up this week. I have been waiting 10 years for this truck and I finally have one. Attached are the before and after pictures

    I think you'll be real happy with that color, one of the nicest I think. Welcome to TW and enjoy your new truck.

    Thanks Guys. Sofar I am very happy with it and fully expect to remain that way for longtime given Toyota's reputation. I like the truck this color as it seems to give it a bit of attitude especially with the hood scoop.

    The transmission works like charm. It takes a little time to get used to the spread in the 6 speed, but it works smoothly right from the start. I like it for sure.
