    Unhappy Goodbye ol' girl, you will be missed... (sniff, sniff)

    Did a little down sizing over the weekend. Had to let the Tundra go. Here's the latest pic i have of her:

    The Taco is growing on me, but I sure did love my tundra!

    Gotta do what you gotta do, man. I'm still resisting selling my '85 vmax even though I don't ride to much anymore. Just like having it around, I gues
    Its more fun to ride a slow motorcycle fast than a fast motorcycle slow.

    If they would put my 4.6L V8 in the Tacoma, I would sell my Tundra today and get one. I sold my '05 TRD Tundra and got a '12 TRD Tundra. I love it but I really liked the size of the 1st Gen Tundras which would be similar to the new Tacomas (I assume). I am a fan of white from the word go and your new Tacoma is neat!

    If I didn't need my 5.7 full size Tundra for towing It would be a taco hands down. Yes the small v-8 would be great.

    How do you like the Tacoma compared to the tundra? I've been contemplating the same thing in the back of my mind. Was it hard to get use to driving and being in a smaller rig? All i use my truck for is hauling my dirtbike around so I def don't need this full size beast, but I'm afraid to give up the power and space. But it would be nice having a smaller more versatile truck after driving my wife's new rav4.

    It's really starting to grow on me. It rides really nice, and still has a decent amount of space. It feels a lot more nimble than the tundra but nowhere near as quick. I have always had a full size truck, but i think this will fill it's role as a hunting/firewood/home improvement hauler well. Gas mileage isn't too shabby either, just filled it for the first time and calculated 19 mpg's on the same daily drive that I couldn't break the 14 mpg mark in my tundra. The drive is 33 miles one way with 30/70 city/highway in the hills of Pittsburgh.

    Thanks for the info. Sounds like the Tacoma would suite me perfectly. I too can't break 14-15 with my daily drive. The mileage and a few issues I've had with my tundra make me contemplate the switch to a more nimble midsize everyday.

    I am sure finding a parking spot that is big enough is less of a problem with Tacoma. Even though I went with Tundra, I do love Tacoma.
