    Is the T 100 a Tacoma? You sure don't see many of them around.

    I would day the Tacoma is closer to
    The T100 than the Tundra. Both mid sized trucks right? I know the Tundra came from the T100.

    Toyota's first attempt at full-sized, 8ft bed with the drive train of a mid-sized truck (Tacoma/pre-taco). It was supposed to compete with the big boys but other than bed capacity and reliability it fell short. I could only imagine how sluggish the 2.7l felt in that sized truck.

    Rear leaf spring tsb 5000 miles, w ac fan 26k miles, windshield creaking 28k miles- not warranty. Bad upper idler pulleys 32k miles- not warranty, Toyota Quality!
    96+ tacoma none locking, 2000-2006 tundra, seqouia or whatever the spelling, and the t100 whatever years all share the same T100 axle. The trucks share many of the same parts.

    Yup... The original "Tundra" was a "T-150" concept truck, and it was built on a T-100 frame.
    Ford chimed in with their lawyers and the T-150 name was scrapped and they went with Tundra.

    Bedliners and many other parts fit both the T100 and Tundra.

    Looks like it was taken with a cell phone, but considering that show was in 1998 and cell phone camera technology was about on the level of Fisher-Price... I would guess it was taken with something like a Sony Mavica.

    But it was one of the better pictures I was able to Google.
    Most of them were thumbnail sized. There used to be a LOT more out there that were a bit smaller, but clearer, and from many more angles including interior shots.

    The T-100 was Toyota's first full size attempt. Back in the early 90's full size trucks made up about 40 percent of all U.S. car and LT sales. Toyota wanted in on the market share and gave us the T-100. At first it was a 4 cyl. regular cab and didn't fair very well.After a few years with some upgrades and the 3.4 V-6 it started to win some buyers away from the Big Three. However it was not quite a full size and lacked the V-8 power contractors wanted. Toyota still wanted to be in the game and gave birth to the V-8 Tundra in 2000. I myself purchased a new 97 T-100 Xtra cab 4x4 with the V-6. This was an outstanding truck for my needs as a homeowner. I haul all the time, and it gave very good M.P.G. as well. It was driven everyday for almost 14 years before i sold her and had no major problems. It was the last of the Trucks Toyota built in Japan and I have great memory of her. I now have a new 2011 Tacoma and look forward to the same fortune with it. Please see how she looked when I sold her. Pics in my gallery.

    Not sure.
    I remember in the late 90s they offered some pretty bright red options.

    For 1998, Colorrite lists the following reds for Toyota:
    Super Red, Sunfire Red Pearl, Sunburst Pearl, Ruby Pearl, Renaissance Red, Radiant Red B/C, Prussian Red Pearl, Garnet Red Pearl, Dark Red Metallic, Cinnabar Pearl

    Of those, Garnet Red Pearl, Radiant Red B/C, and Super Red are the brightest.

    All may not have been available on a '98 Taco, but that's what Toyota had available in their factory paint shops and would most likely have been one used on a concept vehicle unless they went with a custom blend.

    LOL! Ya...

    The one Toyota color that always just bugged me was what they called "Coral".

    My boss had a Tercel wagon in that color. I always used to piss him off referring to it as "Salmon Pink"
    He swore it was an orange tone. Not to my eyes.

    It was West Hollywood Pooftah Pink!
