Throwing in the towel on the Mustang...

Unread post by Kuneff » Thu Jul 14, 2011 10:33 am

It saddens me to do this but I am hitting some glitches with the mustang so I am giving up. Looks like the wife and I will be sporting my Tacoma on the trip now.

With any luck my sticker kit will be here Saturday so it will be all set by Monday.

I could leave the MINI home and bring our 4Runner...... nah, not this time.

Sorry to hear but it's important that join us regardless of the vehicle.

I had a 2005 Tacoma TRD Off-Road with 3" of lift and 33's on 10-in rims. Nice truck for sure.
Not sure which of the fleet will be employed in 2014...

I like your Truck collection!!!! I always wanted a Lightning, almost got one new in 2001. Damn salesman thought I was playing games. I said $600 a month limit. They started at 850, I laughed, then they came down to 700 I told them 600 and thats it.. they came back at 605 I walked out. I wanted that truck sooooo freaking bad.

Yea 2001-2002 dealers were horrible on them. Mine was 3500-5000 over sticker so I got my 01 used in 02

They are money pits past mid 12s. They never feel fast so you always want more and making heavy fast gets pricey and take a lot of time with the wrenches.

I just sold my race truck since I could not afford to break it or build a tranny Tongans the power. I still work on it and hope to see a solid 9 out of it with the tranny the new owner is going with. Glad to see another truck. I hate to stick out that much

We did Route 66 in our truck and it was great. Nice and comfy, tons of room, and ice cold AC. This year we'll be rocking a rental car. :(

Nothing wrong with sportin the Tocoma.

Now, what I want to see is a double roll bar made out of paper towel rolls. Big trail lights on top of the cab made out of buckets. You HAVE To ditch the tailgate and get one of those tailgate nets instead. Mud flaps that scrap on the ground and have the siloettes of the naked women on them. You must also put a tarp in the back, fill it full of water and put a sign in it that says "WV hottub".......

......as you can tell I'm just having fun with that......

Rally in a TRUCK? Are you kidding me are you really leaving your Mustang at home and coming to a rally in a truck? What kind of idiot would do a stupid thing like that?

Oh wait that is exactly what we did last year, never-mind

Trust me the Rally in the truck last year was nice, packing is a breeze and a lot more comfortable.
