    I've come to a half-assed agreement with myself that I would trade-in my 2007 convertible Mustang if the right Tacoma came along. I have a 1969 Mustang that I would like to tow, which I would feel more comfortable doing so with a V6 instead of my husband's I4 (I can say it's "his" instead of "ours" when get my own Tacoma) :p

    Well, this may just be the "right" one. Right price, right cab, right engine, right transmission, right sound upgrades, right mileage, WRONG location! $250 transfer fee just to see the vehicle? Ugh....

    Is it excessive for one household to have two pick-ups? I keep trying to tell myself 'no', not anymore than two Mustangs, right? :D

    and being as they are both 2009s, my current running lights may find a "magical" little fix when a 2009 with only 16k shows up with fried headlights.....

    I would never trade my tacoma for a mustang, hence you should trade the mustang for the tacoma

    I agree, and I don't typically agree with raswank. :p

    Carmax sells great vehicles, but you also pay for them.

    A little high and little low. They only offered me $12,500.00 for my Mustang, so now I'm dragging my tail between my legs with disappointment.......

    THEREFORE, someone must BUY THIS Tacoma so that I may live VICARIOUSLY through you! Cause, damn, she's pretty. I'm interested to test out that subwoofer too...

    I see the Taco as light duty and if you're planning to tow a car and trailer you may want to look at a full size truck.

    I have the same color on my truck, speedway blue. Love it! The only problem that I see wrong with the truck is that it is prerunner. You should let this one go and buy a 4x4.

    Yeah, I could, but we just financed my husband's, and it worries me to have too many car loans out at once. I was really counting on the Mustang to hold SOME value. I'm going to try to list it privately and see if I can't get rid of it quick enough.


    Soooooooo, anyone lookin' for a real beaut of a convertible? I work for a detail service, so you know it's clean :p Only 33,000-miles, you know you want it.....
