    I own an 06 4 cyl Tacoma with 15,000 miles on it. Two questions, change the antifreeze or not, & Toyota or aftermarket antifreeze if its a yes ?

    Yup 15 bikes, how stupid is that, but its the only vice I have. Been going to Bonneville since 1984. I have a buddy who runs a car there who holds a bunch of records

    Ive never raced there but hes gone 216 with is turbo, injected, straight 8 Buick powered lakester, holds the XXO/BGL record and is in the 200 mph club. He also holds about 7 records with his Buick powered Jaguar called Salt Cat. Its way out of my budget league
