    While I don't have a Speedway Blue Tacoma, it is probably one of the colors that I like best. Recently, I have noticed that I rarely see a new Speedway Blue Tacoma on dealer lots. My job requires a lot of driving around the Dallas/Ft. Worth and surrounding areas and I might drive by 7 or 8 dealerships per day. I have seen only one or two new Speedway Blue Tacoma's at dealerships since the introduction of the 2011's. I know colors come and go. I was wondering if the Speedway Blue color has run it's course and is at it's end.

    I don't see this trend here in Mobile ,AL. It was like me and another guy driving SWB. Then all of sudden in the last 2 years I've seen at least about 10 new ones around town. And if you go across the bay to the toyota dealership they keep about 5 to 10 of each color on the lot at all times.

    I hope not. I had a SWB for awhile and I think that is one of the nicest looking colors out there. I wish I still had that truck, it was by far my favorite.

    Dunno....I love my SWB.

    If they discontinue it, I hope they come up with another color that's just as cool. Like THIS:

    In another 5 or 6 years...I'll be ready for another tacoma and I'd love to have that color next!!

    I love my speedway blue Taco. Well the ladies love it, so I love that the ladies love it :D And it looks fuckin bad ass when only blue and black. I would only want them to stop producing that color in order to make mine more special :)

    When I bought mine, I asked the dealer "What do they call this? You're going to have me forever blue?"

    I love my SWB. So does everyone that sees it. My local dealer has only sold one other one in this color, and mine had to be brought in from out of state. It was definitely my first color choice. Not that I don't like it others, I just love blue, and it's different than most Tacomas I've seen on the roads around here.

    I stopped by the Toyota dealer last weekend to get the computer flashed. I had my girlfriend with me, I saw a 2011 SWB DC LB. I asked her what does she think about that color and if I traded my truck for it. She said it was a girly color, and that I'd be gay to get it.:p:p:p

    Anybody with a DCLBSWB selling LMK.

    For you 2wd guys in DCLBSWB ... I'll trade for yours for my 4x4 SB, as long as your truck is in good condition like mine.
