    This might be stupid to some and not others.... the offroad club that I used to be highly involved in - we'd put our club business cards on trucks to help advertise and/or get more members online.

    When you guys are out & about and you see a tacoma somewhere - are you ever urged to tell them about this site?

    Ever thought of dropping a TacomaWorld type business card on their truck and see if they stop in?

    Not that it matters - but I think this site is very diverse and would be 'accepting' of everyone who pops in looking for information and help. And I'd be proud to sneak business cards on tacomas when I see 'em.

    hmmm one thing i hate is someone putting anything on my truck, usually people will just throw them away but hopefully your idea will work and bring more peeps to the site.

    i have some good flyers for this, but it wont let me attach .ppt or .pptx files. if one of the godly mods could add .ppt's and all to the attachable list and up to 200k files, i've got some fairly nice ones that could be posted on boards or put under wipers.....if it gets done, will one of the mods PM me so i can add them? thx

    what I do, I find a tacoma driving down the road. I cut them off and then slam on my brakes. They're almost guaranteed to read that TW sticker on my rear window.

    I got "Tacomaworld" Tattooed on my middle finger, and I speed up to other Tacomas and flip them off. They are mad for a second, but when they realize I had just invited them to the most exclusive club on the net, they SMILE!:):):)

    I have actually told people regularly about this forum. As a matter of fact, I spent an extra hour at Bass Pro Shop last weekend talking to a guy about his 1st Gen Tacoma. When I told him about the deckplate mod, his eyes lit up like the high beams on the Baja Trucks... He loves his truck more than I love mine! :thumbsup:

    So, I took one of his cards and he wrote down the stuff I was looking at, and I wrote down my the URL for TW, and gave him my screenname...

    Haven't seen him on here yet, but then again I haven't exactly met EVERYONE! ;)

    I got some body like that at North Park Toyota. Oh, and I told my friend Todd at http://www.dieseltoyz.com. I will be at his place tomorrow cutting into the radiator support for my new URD TCAI! :rockband: That is if I can get past being sick as a dog... :sick:

    PPT's are power point. .doc or .pdf would be better.

    I've thought about doing it, but I see them mostly while driving. And the people I do see driving don't seem like the type to do anything with their truck. (ie, past retirement age, or bone stock truck without even any "normal" accessories)

    I can store stuff on my website if needed - and offer up the link for downloading. I'd be tempted to make a business card Ad somehow. But - time is limited for me right now...

    Same here about the 'old timers' and such. But hey, you don't know unless you try. Perhaps someone would stop in just for the sake of something to do and they might find a *new meaning* to enjoying their daily driver vehicle.

    lol I'm not trying to say older people shouldn't or wouldn't want to join, but the people I see can barely see over the steering wheel. Or sit so far forward it makes you wonder if they can see the road. So doing mods would be out of the question I think. More likely they got a larger vehicle to be "safer" in when they inevitably crash. :rolleyes: I mean people that look like they're in their 70s or 80s and don't look/feel like 50's.... :laugh:

    Not too many younger people driving them, and fewer women around here. I'm the only one around here with BHLM, lift, DTRLs, alternating turn signals, etc, and no one has ever walked up to me and asked about them.

    Not that I get out much....:rolleyes: But I know a couple guys at work that have 'em. A couple other trucks parked at work (big factory) but don't know who they are, and from time to time I'll park near one when I'm at the mall (laugh). So - I'd be tempted just to slap a card on there anyways.

    I see a lot of older folks driving 'em around here also. And paticularly in mini's.....

    A couple years back - I put a club (offroad club) business card on a Jeep Rubicon while I was at BJ's. And the guy -totally white haired 60 year old man - has been out on the trails with the club ever since and absolutely LOVES it. Who would've thought?

    So, I stopped a guy at Shell yesterday named Wes. After asking him about his sweet truck (which I forgot to ask about his bed rack :frusty:), I told him all about TW! I am a TW whore. :thumbsup:

    (Janster, I blame you. :p)
