Just kidding haha. We do get some pow here... sheesh.

I have an '03 Mitsu Galant GTZ... low mileage, but she's been through some rather unfortunate accidents (none of which were caused while I was driving :/).

She looks like hell now haha. My wife drives a TC (boooooo!).

We now have two kids and neither cars are sufficient. We will be on the hunt for an SUV and perhaps a bigger sedan, if not my Mitsu will get some money dumped into it.

Ideally, we would get a Toyota 4Runner few years used. I'm not opposed to getting our hands on a used Audi Q8 :P

Audi Q8 and S8 in our garage within the next decade is the goal

My wife drives a tc too, decent little car.... I'm gonna get some decent snow tires next winter though.....

I wish my sister could have done that, her garage in the winter usually seems to be a ditch of some sort

I refuse to call them Nokian!!! Just like I refuse to spell it Aluminum... It's Aluminium for f's sakes! lol Naw seriously Nokian was a spin off of Nokia and "Nokian" just means "of Nokia". Like if you're Canadian you're "of/from Canada".

Well a Taco can be many things, a delicios mexican lunch, a pink taco is something that drives many men to drink, and then the Toyota Taco is just a affectionate term for a Tacoma. Not sure if it's just the Toyota guys that do this, but:

Toyota = 'yoda
Tacoma = Taco
Celica = Celi or 'lica
MR2 = 'two
Corolla = 'rolla

A nice taco...

Ahh I see now One of my favorite trucks is the "Taco" they used in Top Gear to go to the North Pole

Funny how the sidewalls on the skis match the color of the truck

That's actually a hilux which is closely related to our North American "taco's" lol I wish we got that here, I love that truck! They did modify it to help it get to the north pole. But nevertheless it was the first motorized vehicle to make it there!

Oh yeah, just to further muddy the waters, some Toyota guys talk in chassis codes instead.

AE86 = late 80's Corolla GTS (rwd)
FJ = Landcrusiers (specifically with gasoline engines as technically the diesel engined landcruisers are BJs)
RA/TA20's = 70's Celicas

Toyota actually used that cult naming convention to name a few of the newer vehicles. The FJ Cruiser was named because it was designed to look like the FJ40's. Although it's actual chassis code is GSJ10 or GSJ15. The new Subaru BRZ, Toyota GT86, and Scion FRS was designed with the AE86 in mind. The car that basically started the drifting movement. Although the chassis code for the 86 is really something like AS1 or something.

Back to our regularly scheduled programming!

Here's my bucket (93' Ford Explorer xlt) pretty much stock but with some new parts; Tires, Shocks, Speakers...I wanna get a lift kit someday though, was $2,200 and only had 86,000 on it. In 3 years I've only had to change some basic stuff, no engine troubles, electronics all work, 4x4 and 4 low works. I Didn't post the whole thing because georgetown is a small place and I dont wanna get raped

and she drives straight as an arrow without holding onto the wheel, even after all the 4x4ing i've done
p.s. thats McClellan Mountain and I didn't make it to the top because of snow >.< it was a month or so ago, and I spent 2 hours shoveling a 75-100 woot wide snow patch out only to get maybe a thousand feet and run into another one around the side of the mountain. If I would have made it though I would have been the first car this year!

sa much as its not a great car... i really can't complain. i have a jeep patriot. didn't even opt for the 4x4. if i did have that, it would have everything i would need. still haven't been stuck anyway... cheap to buy, cheap to run, carry boards in the car and still 3-4 people with no issues, or if i use my rack, load it up.

and for those who remember me...i still drive me AMC pacer too. not to the mountain though... just for shits and giggles in the summer.

lol noob thats a hilux. jk, the tacoma is toyota's midsized truck only sold in north america and the hilux is the tacoma's brother (and arguably a better rig) sold pretty much everywhere else. It is not sold here mainly because the diesel does not pass EPA requirements and the taco has such a good reputation and good following the demand is not quite there except from the hard core toyota people.
