    Converting Euro vegans with meat could have gone in a completely different direction!

    And wtf is the deal with the Gordini?! Finished both stages only because someone towed him and hours behind the leader...

    Fawk.. Went to the dealership by my parents in Rhode Island looking for some coolant, drove aroundback to see five 1st and 2nd Gen beds and about 20 new frames in the rear parking lot..

    Swung back in to see what it was about; apparently Toyota us doing another voluntary frame recall (actually had a 2000 SR5 that was bought back a few years ago)..

    Service Manager threw my rig up on the lift to check it out, figured I might as well since I was there. Great guy, we actually inspected it together - as I expected, no issues. Pretty funny to see the reaction of the sales/service staff when you show up with a heavily modified rig..

    Pretty horrendous, took a look at an '06 that they were replacing the frame on - literally had holes in the inner frame behind the catalytic converters, heavy SCALE (it's different than surface rust..). Literally looked like a 25 year old truck that had been dipped in salt water.

    Manager said they've done about 450 frames, between Tacomas and Tundras.

    Really, really glad I'm on the Left Coast now.

    Lol. Left coast. That's amazing about all of the frame problems. Well it still doesn't chase me away from Toyota.

    I agree; they're owing up to it.

    They already bought a 2000 SR5 back from me when I lived out here, due to the rust recall..

    Got $15,580 for a truck I paid $9k for.

    If I was living out here again, and was getting the frame replaced, I'd have it blasted, zinc primered, and painted with a marine two part epoxy.

    Oh, good times were had by all I assure you that lol.

    RG didn't test his car, like usual. I think he has so much going on he really doesn't have the time to test any of his cars. It was a foolish move, and he will not learn from it at all. I also think it will really hurt his sales to civilians as well, but what can you do.

    I thought he got at least some testing in with it. You would think someone with his experience would understand how insanely important testing and prep is. Doesn't look like there will be any Americans on the podium this year. :( Baldwin just isn't stepping it up. Can't expect him to do amazing his first year out though.

    Thanks. It is a bit of an upsize all around for us. Going from 3.28 acres and 2548 sq ft house to 10 acres and 3000+ sq ft house. One area I want to turn into a game room with a pool table, air hockey, maybe put up some plywood on a wall and have darts (plywood is for my aim). Eventually, I think I would have to have a fridge down there to keep beer cold. There is a lot of work to do to clear out the back 5 acres, but it will happen in time.
