    2ACE2F6E-C4D3-43C3-A7C7-50CA33B4E8AA.jpg FA78432B-89C9-45C0-98DC-5AFEFDE684FA.jpg Thought it might be fun to see what vehicles folks were driving before they bought their current Tacoma. I’m sure many of us have driven junkers (my first car I paid $200 for, a real rust bucket. I drove it through high school years and sold it for the same $200 a week before I left for Air Force basic training in 1977). When looking back over the years funny list in my case of daily drivers and where I lived when buying:

    Indianapolis, Indiana:
    1) 1967 AMC Ambassador (used)
    2) 1978 Ford Pinto (used)

    Grand Forks, North Dakota:
    3) 1981 Datsun B210 (new)

    San Antonio, Texas:
    4) 1985 Nissan Stanza (new)

    Dayton, Ohio:
    5) 1982 Plymouth Horizon (used)
    6) 1988 Dodge Shadow (new)

    Riverside, California:
    7) 1995 Chevy Truck (new)
    8) 2005 Toyota Tacoma (new)

    Rapid City, South Dakota:
    9) 2001 Jeep Wrangler (used)
    10) 2005 Subaru Baja (used)
    11) 2017 Toyota Tacoma (used)

    Not lookin at an upgrade unless I get too old to climb into the drivers seat...haha.he.he...

    Dented, snapped a bolt on the belt tensioner about 2 years prior, it's been rear ended (looked fine so I took the payout and left it)... There's a big reason I didn't buy a luxury car this round, I'm not gentle on my cars and use and abuse them. No leather, no sunroof. Love the new tacoma.
