    The Toyota dealership finally opened last week and I kinda started working, sorta.
    On Monday, there were no cars, so I detailed everyones car that worked there. I dont know their names yet.
    At noon time, the owners bought 10 pizza pies for lunch.
    At 1pm, i bought my truck in, and detailed the living crap out of it. It was used to train myself in the art of detailing. (It was an excuse to try out all the products)
    I left at 5 with a shinny spotless cleaned right down to the frame truck
    At 5:23pm, it rained...........

    On Tues, the first of 49 truckloads of new cars and trucks arrived
    They were all Tacoma's
    Heavens door began to open
    At noontime, the owners bought chinese food for all of us.
    I went home at 5:00 happy

    On Wed, the Tundra's arrived. We kinda left tire marks on the pavement. 5.7 l Imax motors cause orgasims. (TMI, i know) Reminds me of driving my first Pontiac GTO and getting pushed back in the seat on acceleration back in the 60's.
    I detailed Tundra's all day. My third day in Heaven.

    At noon time, I had to go to Mc Donalds for lunch, damn.

    On Thurs, the FJ Land Cruisers arrived, and I was temporary blinded by the yellow ones
    Fri we officially opened for business to the public and I was swamped for the rest of the day.
    People were buying trucks right off the trailers as they arrived.

    On Sat, I was still in heaven...............The Tacoma accessory catalog arrived and I bought a new set of wheels and tires............

    In my 40 years of working in this business, I have never been happier.

    Congrats on starting the new job. Those new Tundras are freaking monsters. Haven't had a chance to drive one myself yet though.
