The truck show is Saturday 9am to 4pm. I'm supposed to be working 10-6...
picked up my 08 crewmax from the dealer friday. waited a month for white on black interior but it was worth it. im in the hampton roads area(va beach)
lol, well put sir. Hello to you too.:yo:Hello from a native Buckeye.
If everyone will allow me to be Obsessive Compulsive for a few moments...
I'm not sure what Ohio is doing in the "Mid-Atlantic Region." Ohio is a Midwestern state. We are considered Midwest by the U.S. Census and other agencies. We are separated from the Atlantic by the wide state of Pennsylvania. We are west of the Alleghenies in the Mississippi basin. Our dialect tends to be more akin to Chicago than coastal-usually with just a hint of the south courtesy of Appalachia. Heck, we have cows, corn and soybeans in abundance!
Having said all of that, if you insist upon separating me from my midwestern brethren, so be it. I am here, and I will enjoy looking for other Buckeyes, and conversing with everyone "else" from the Mid-Atlantic region. Oh, not that I am disparaging the Mid-Atlantic. I have wonderful friends from PA, NJ,NY and elsewhere along the seaboard. I absolutely love the tidewater area of Virginia. The piedmont is very nice as well.
So, anyway, hello everyone.
Mike,Krazy, welcome. I live in Central NJ--Piscataway to be exact. Where's your shop? I may have to pop in there and check it out some weekend.
If you EVER need anyone for wheeling trips, be sure to post here or IM me. Once the summer comes, I usually go to Wharton a few times. Always looking to relive my West Coast days with a camping/wheeling trip. (SIGH) Yet these don't seem to be too common in the MAtl.
I got mine in March of this year. Thanks to everyone here for the candid comments about the good and bad of the vehicle. I'm really happy with it. Agreed with the "I didnt know the truck has that." Felt really good to know what to look for. In my defence, they cut the price of the TRD package to what I expected to pay for vanilla SR5. The red, unfortunately sold the truck. I didnt have a color preference, just no Desert Sand, no White, and no Nautical Blue. My boss bought a nautical Blue CM, I already had a white truck, and every dang person in my area that has a toyota has it in desert sand. The red matches my old mullet-mobile, makes it sweeter. :rockon:I purchased my 08 in Apr last year, found the site about six months ago and have been hooked since. What a wealth of information. I probably wouldn't have really noticed some of the things with my truck if I hadn't read it here. Thanks to all the members of TS!
