    Well sorry to hear but understand that nothing is set in stone, Tacomas will more than likely never go away and you can always get another one. I wouldn't be so hard on yourself, life is more important than any truck.

    I have done all the hi-pro mods for a life time, since I got this truck at a great price, I will be happy with showroom new.
    don't sweat it, life goes on, and things can be replaced, I have had to learn that lesson myself, but it will make you a better person.
    and one piece of advice my grandfather told me, and I do try to stick by it
    "you need to save some of your money, because hard times will always follow good times, and don't ever fiance a car unless you have no other options. Interest is too high, and when you have the money in your pocket for either a used car or new you have the power, and you set the deal.":D

    got mine last winter, and she came from southwest texas, no rust, but I am still cleaning the red dust. but that's why i love her

    my grandparents got through the depression and the war, we can get through this.
    I learned a lot from them, and they knew how to have a good time and enjoy like, but it does not have to cost a lot.
    Now her daughters, and my mom have a hard uppity streak and I don't know where they got it, but my aunt was dating this uppity clown from Atlanta and all he could do was brag and doing this and that and how much it cost, and they ate this and the whole meal cost that........
    My grandmother said "well buddy it dont matter how much it cost going in because it all comes out the same"!

    my aunt did not say anything but later she called and asked me what he might have thought, and I told her the truth, THAT WE ARE ALL WHITE TRASH!

    yeah thats bull crap...when i grew up mom was a metal worker and dad was a truck driver. we didnt have much but we was happy...kids got new bicycles and cool toys but we got the knowledge of how to make what we had last longer. all the rich kids messed with me and my brother bout not having the stuff they had...now the people i remember messed with me the most are in prison for drugs or too many dwi's or they are as broke now as i was then..im still broke in pocket but not broke in spirit...to much to worry about then money. i just wanted to say bye to a truck i thought id have forever i didnt know it would turn into this but im cool with it.

    Amen to that. You are doing your number 1 job. Hang in there. I would sell everything for my family. Some of our best times have come when just sitting around talking or hanging out in the yard playing. Nothing fancy, just family.....you can't beat that!
