    If money was no object, and you could only have one vehicle, would you change what you have. (modifications are a non factor), if so what and why.

    Nope, money is no object (well it is an object since I can hold it, I just don't care about it) and I still bought the Tacoma. No matter how much I have I still don't need much and the Tacoma was still the biggest bang for the buck.

    Although I wouldn't mind having an M1A2 Abrams Tank and go around and smash everything like that guy on TV did. Maybe the Russians will sell me a tank? I'll take a T-71. ;)

    In my case money was on object and I really set out to get a Tundra! !! I went car shopping and walked up to a Tundra and almost could not see into the bed! ! Right there I said to the sales lady "Too Big" what else do you got. She took me over to a Tacoma and that was all it took:) I had Taco Fever:D After that it was history, I was bitten by the Taco Love Bug and am now the owner of the sweetest little truck in the world as we now know it:D

    Thats a hard question. I dont know that i could part with my Taco now that i actually own it, but if i got something else it would be some kind of BMW. Maybe a late 80's M6, but only if it were in mint condition.

    I'd have to keep my Taco, but if I could have anything at all it would be a Hemi Challenger in white (bonus points to you if you can name what move made that car famous without looking it up)

    Though the rest of the short list includes

    1971 Mach 1 Mustang (blue w/black stripes)
    1969 Charger RT (orange of-course)
    1967 Shelby GT-350 (White w/blue stripes)
    Shelby Daytona Coupe (Only 7 of these ever existed)
    1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula Red (before you mock me understand that I lost my virginity in this car)

    Forgot this one:

    2005 Citroen C5 (I know it really doesn't fit with the rest of them, but I drove one for 10 days in France a few years back and really enjoyed it)

    I'm not quite 5'11" now. Then I was probably 5"8" or 5"9". we slid the passenger seat all the way forward, and then reclined it as far back as it would go. At no point did I say it was comfortable, nor did I say that we ever tried it again, but the memory is still as fresh as it was that day. Damn I probably loved her car more than I loved her. LOL.
