    How many over 55 years of age are here as for me in 27 days I will be 60 and my Tacoma is truly my first vehicle for me alone. Wife did not stop me but I will probably owe her. Why do women never ever forget something we have done 30 years ago?:goingcrazy::goingcrazy:

    Hey there.... don't worry, there are a few of us over 55 around here. I've had a truck or a van for many years on and off. I have wanted a Tacoma for waaay too long but couldn't swing it. I just got rid of a '01 S-10 I bought used when my kids went through High School and College so I figured it is my time now! I love my Taco and have had fun doing a few mods to it.

    :help:Damm thank you all. Nice knowing there are others here that are over 50 or near 50 but still feel like 20. I have seen in my life guys that just give up when the hit 50. As for me when the time comes I am going down fighting.
    I am enjoying life more than ever before. I am retired but now working in a hardware store which is something I have wanted to do as a youngster. It is great going to a job that to you is not a job.

    Me, too!

    My '09 Taco is the first brand new vehcile that has been for me. I've kept the better half in new vehicles but I've always bought used until now.

    As for Geezer status, not until they put me in the box.
