    The Silverado was a decent truck, but I'm glad I sold it before the gas prices went up. I took this pic when I was towing a trailer up a hill on the way from Flagstaff to Phoenix:

    It had the 6l engine.

    I had a 1993 Ford Probe GT. It was my first car and I probably spent too much on it...but I couldn't resist :) I recently gave it to my little brother...all I can hope for is that he will take care of it like I did.

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I had a 72 plymouth fury. It was rusted out so bad that your feet got soaked when driving in the rain. Wish I'd kept it.

    Second was an 88' Celica. Not sure why, but it was a POS. It had power everything but all that stuff was either non-functioning or constantly breaking down. The transmission and power steering had problems. The funny thing is that it only had 140,000 miles.

    My current is my 96' Taco bought new in 1996. Almost 220,000 miles. Still runs great, no problems.

    Started driving a Dodge Grand Caravan in high school (2 years), then got a '93 Prelude Vtec (5 years), then got my 1998 TRD Tacoma (2 years), made the mistake of selling that for an '04 Audi A4 (1 year). Got rid of that piece of junk for my '06 Tacoma (4 months) because the friend I sold the '98 to wouldn't sell it back.

    Prior to my 2008 I had a 2000 reg cab tacoma, red of course. Prior to that I had a 1973 Chevy long bed with a small lift, larger tires. It also had headers with just enough straight pipe to get in front of the rear axel where it dumped. Man I miss that truck for some good mudding.

    ;) I've always loved royal blue. I wish it was a bit deeper blue - but it's still awesome! Although, a red tacoma would've been my 2nd choice. :D

    I loved those older 4Runner design. I don't like the new ones as much. They look too MOmmmmish (to me anyway).
