    I've always looked at the Tacos, saying if I ever bought a truck...

    And now, as of 8 months ago I'm the proud owner of a 2007 TRD Sport. The previous owners were an elderly couple, and they took relatively good care of it. I managed to snag it for a good deal, so I'm quite happy.

    However, smacked a deer with the front left corner doing ~50 2 days after starting on a new contract... Oops!

    So far, I've installed Grillcraft MX upper and side vent grills, and have the lower to be installed whenever I next find time. Since they were being replaced anyways, rather than doing a BHLM I just bought the Anzo USA Crystal Blacks...

    I've got a looooong list of upgrades/changes planned, and after lurking around here for a few months gleening what I needed I finally joined! :cool:

    Aside from my Taco, I have a project 370Z that seems like it will never be done due to my lack of spare time and its location down in WV while I live in MD...

    I own a quartet of small IT businesses servicing WV, MD, PA, KY and Va... Aside from executive duties I work as an enterprise systems architect. I grew up in WV, and intend to return there once the new wife (Sept '10) finishes her medical residency up here. Aside from autos, I'm pretty hardcore with tech stuff and gaming, but I'd rather be out shooting any number of my REAL guns rather than a puter any day! I used to hunt, and would love to get back into varminting... Maybe some 3-gun, but I'd need to unpack the reloading gear first! :D I also mtn bike (grew up in the "Mountain Bike Mecca of the East") and am an avid downhill skiier.

    Hope I can learn a lot more and maybe share some of my own knowledge! :)
