Current Occupation: Security
Intended Career: It would be cool to play arena football or drift.

Reason I bought a Toyota Truck: Good deal, my buddy talked me out of getting a jeep.

Age: 52
Current Occupation: Self-Unemployed Construction work/fabricator
Intended Career: Race Car Fabricator...Although I've been trying for over 20 years to figure out how to do so and make a steady enough living to pay a mortgage...Maybe I will figure it out when I grow up...Nawwww
Hobbies: Motorsports...Off Road Racing (Baja 1000 type)... recreational off roading... to road racing to sprint cars and midgets... to dry lakes racing, Mountain biking , snow skiing, scale model race cars, and wasting all this time on the net on forums and groups.
Music: an eclectic blend of classic rock, jazz, blues, latin, country, new age, alternative, techno, trance, etc.
Realistic Dream car: a more-developed version of the Toyota I drive now...build the roll cage, suspension seats, rear suspension to match the front...maybe limited slip.
Reason I bought a Toyota Truck: It has to be rugged, practical and economical. It has to carry the tools and materials for construction or fabricating, and my wife and son, so an Xtra Cab or crew cab truck, It has to pull a trailer with at least a 2,000 lb buggy or Baja. so again a truck. It has to work well and be durable off road in the desert, so Toyota or Ranger. It has to be fun also. I had a Ranger Super Cab until a fool turned left into my path on a 55mph road, then came across a deal on a Toyota already started on. There are a lot of reasons why the desert is full of 80s and 90s Rangers and Toyotas! And most of them apply to me, except I don't do what is "popular" or "trendy" unless it also happens to actually "Work"!

Music: All of them

Realistic Dream car: Wow! hmm. I just got this truck and I think I will be driving this til Im 80 years old. hehehe....

better late than never

Age: 21 in 9 days!
Current Occupation: Mechanic/Professional at injuring my back
Intended Career: Chassis Fabbing, intricate interior work, flawless paint.. something you can take time and pride in doing and still make enough to live without massive concern. I don't want to end up like all my mechanic bosses: worn down from years of doing this stuff
Hobbies: Skateboarding, snowboarding, wakeboarding (etc), guitar, this forum, tinkering, anything outdoors , and doing EVERYTHING on my pickup
Music: we listen to classical at work when the old guy tires of our "noise"(classic rock), and even the occasional country and mainstream rap.. everything is good in healthy doses
Realistic Dream car: 1989 Toyota 22RET(swap my longblock and computer, build a sleeper) mated a 6spd supra tranny with 2.89 rear end for awesome mileage with mild bodywork and stellar interior--now watch it happen!
2nd.. maybe a 1968 cougar xr-7 in olive with bullet rims.
Reason I bought a Toyota Truck: Because I was trying to get my license. Then I learned to drive it.. love. Ahaha. I have to admit though. It looked hideous on 15inch rims with tiny sidewall.. and I too love the lines. Awesome looking truck. and after going through 20+ cars, it was the only one that did it's duty all the time, every time. Now I just collect Toyotas for their reliability and economy, and superior styling.

89 toyota 22r - my baby, the popo's have her now
86.5 supra - waiting for shop space to 2jz swap
91 4Runner - 3.4 swapped automatic, BJ spacers, lift springs
67 C10 - LS1 twin turbo swapped
