    So it all started when i was 15...I had to have a truck as my first vehicle...
    1991 Nissan Hardbody SEv6 4x4 5spd!!

    Well 2 years later I moved to Florida and it eventually turned into a Landscape/work truck :( and from the salt up in Vermont started to deteriorate over time as usual.

    So I moved on and gave the truck to my brother back in New York for a plow truck until the day she died.

    Now onto number 2. Father purchased a Chevy P/U in 2002 brand new! Rarely driven...so I bought that from him in 2006 with 30k
    2003 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 4x4 5.3!!

    Well that lasted a few years and I just couldn't afford gas anymore, I had my fun as seen in video below..soo it gets put away for the time being with 70k in 2009

    So I decided to step up my game and go on the hunt for my most desired truck..A Tacoma!
