    Sorta relevant, but when I drive by other taco's I always wave, and I take special notice of the 1st gen's I see. I figure they are old, they have been taken care of and the owner is probably a big taco guy, especially since half of them are jacked up with big tires sticking out I can spot from a mile away..

    8/10 I see are women drivers. I almost never see men driving them no matter how jacked up, muddy or "work equipped" they seem. I know it's sexist of me to assume they are going to be men...but I do. Gonna have to reshape some of my thinking! Hell, my service advisor I dropped my truck off to the other day was a woman and she had one too.

    Morning all. :wave:
    Having spent a fair amount of time in the auto service industry, the short answer is 'yes' but really the fact that you're a girl and attractive is usually all it takes. The 'truck' part is just a bonus.

    When I worked at AAA if a pretty lady came in the manager literally went on the PA for the garage and mentioned a "code blue" and half the guys would toss their wrenches and run up front to "ask a question":blahblah:

    Pretty pathetic when you look back on it

    Well given the two scenarios there. Dude shows up with a girl, dude shows up by himself. Chances are both times he's "unavailable" .hahaha

    I actually had to threaten my techs with a write-up during the summer months because they lacked all subtlety. One of them would spot a 'looker' through the window out into the service bays and they'd all come stampeding in to lean on the counter and stare. :facepalm:

    Funny part is that later in life I worked at a very large NH college welding pipe. Got good at putting horse blinders on

    At dealerships I've worked at it was the same. The guys were like prisoners that hadn't seen a woman in years.

    And no, girls really aren't like that haha. Doubt they're doing the same thing in female dominated work places

    Girls are a lot more subtle about it. I worked in a chiropractor's office for a few years. All of the other Chiro assistants were women in their 30's and 40's, and when the guy from Poland Spring (tall & fairly well-built) arrived to swap the full bottles for the empties for the water cooler in the waiting room the word was spread around the office so they could all find a reason to walk by and greet him. But they didn't just hang out and stare at him the whole time. Working in an office full of women was...eye-opening... for a guy in his early 20's.

    It's nice, it's an SLT so it's a similar package to mine, step below the Denali. I like driving it but it's weird looking. It's the gas model but one of my snowmobiling buddies, who has a trailer similar to mine, has the '18 Colorado diesel Denali. He says it tows the trailer no problem and it has the integrated brake controller... I am skeptical but he's not too much of an idiot so he may be right.

    I have to admit, crooked steering wheel aside the cabins of the new GM's are nice places to be. Especially if you get the SLE/SLT packages (or the LTZ, if it's a Chevy). The 2500 that I drove when I was test-driving trucks had an awesome interior and rode like a half ton, but it was $$
