    Curious...when you guys see modded Taco's parked or driving do you get their attention to try and get them to come here?

    I've seen two modded Taco's today that I want to drop a note on to get to come here to TW...any ideas?

    I dont do anything normally. BUT if they were to speak to me or open a line of communication I would steer them here. This is (to me) the best Tacoma forum out here right now.

    I dont do anything. There are soo many on this island that it is just another Tacoma to me. If I do see one that I recognize from the site I will wave. I literally see about a 100 2nd gen Tacomas a day.

    I don't leave notes on anyone's vehicle, some people don't appreciate that so much. But if I see someone with a modded truck or talk to them I'll tell them about the website. Other then that I'll drive in front of them so they see my TacomaWorld sticker :D

    Just yesterday i was at the post office and someone came up to me and asked if it was my truck,
    He stated he saw it on the website here.
    Come to find out he is also on the website and has a blue double sport.
    so of coarse we started talking about the site and the mods we have done.
    So im always up for talking about Tacomaworld,
    but would hesitate about putting something on a parked truck.
