    Greetings from the Southern Tier Region of NY! !
    I am a 71 year old retired jack of all trades, having spent my working life after serving in the Marine Corps in Korea working in the construction industry.

    My first new truck was a 1960 Ford and new trucks every couple of years mostly Chevies. The past 10 years I have had large Conversion Vans and now have purchased what I believe to be my last vehicle period, a 2008 Toyota Acc Cab, V6 4X4 TRD Sport! !

    I only have a couple of hundred miles on it but would like to discuss some bad design details in some of the forums. I love the little TuRD to tool around in after driving the huge Vans for so long.
    I hope I can add some interesting dialog to your Great Forum! !!!!

    Welcome to TW, Don. After driving conversion vans the taco probably feels like a sports car. Are you saying you have actually found something on a taco that was designed badly?? No way! ;)
