Hello everyone! Lemme start off saying this board seems like a great place to learn some cool stuff! Anyways, Im picking up my first Tacoma today in a few hours and I couldnt be more psyched. I only managed to get a few hours of sleep last night becuase i couldnt stop thinking about it so forgive me if I seem exciteable right now <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/drunk.gif" alt="" /> Its a 98 Xtra Cab 2.7 5Spd with 69,xxx on the clock. Its pure good luck i ran into it when i Did, the dealer had gotten it in yesterday and was going to ship it out to auction but I said Aww hell no <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/mrt.gif" alt="" /> let me see that thing. He gave me a price before either of us had even looked at it, so at $7300 Im practically robbing this dude. Hopefully i can get some pics or sometihg up sometime soon. well thanks for listening to the rant hah, Cheers.

Welcome, that is some low mileage for that year. I have a 98 and have 161,000 and I think that is pretty good. Where in Maine are you from, I am in the Farmington area when I am not at school.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! Im so pleased with this new rig, its smooth as can be. Shifts like a champ, and I cant believe how awesome this 2.7 is! My last two toyotas being an 88 Pickup and an 89 4 runner its cool to compare the differences in.. everything hah

There might be some runs this summer of a bunch of guys on TTORA so I will let you know. If you have some available land then it could be a place to go wheel, I usually run skidder trails and winter snowmobile trails. I am also a drummer if that is what your name represents, got a Tama that I bang on occasionally. Might see you around.

Why would any drummer would waste their money on a Tama <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I bang on a Pearl myself, but to each his own. Welcome <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Right on yea, let me know if some runs come up. My friends (parents) land tho probably wouldnt work out haha unless we wanted someone running out with a trench style ww1 shotgun after us <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" />
And actually you both got it wrong... Yamaha all the Way <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" /> Cheers

Odd, must be a magnetic gravitational pull.

DW Stage kit, Vintage Sonor rosewood home kit - tons of pre-'75 K Zildjians and a handful of Sabians. Working on the longest homebuilt project in history, acrylic jellybean kit with custom 3D milled lugs.

Welcome to the Wire.

well now that we're all going off-topic, I might as well chime in:
Pearl 5pc. with Zildjians all around and DW2000 double pedal. I can't compete with the DW stage kit, but it works!

Seems as though we got a couple few drummers in our midst. I thought it was a little less common. I have to get my roommate to get an amp so I have more incentive to play, right now I think that I am barely better then I was in high school (3 years ago). Anyone like the Battallas de los Tombres that Godsmack plays, good stuff and real good in concert!

CraShYota, yea that quarry has a heck of an appetite. My past two rigs have eaten shart on it a few times.. the most memorable being blowing my 88's clutch out in the middle of a winter storm and spending 16 hours over 2 nights trying to shovel it out and get it up a hill <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

Whats your dinner story?

Also its nice to see some drummers around here. Those '75 Zildjians sound like they would be awesome. Ive got Ziljdian A customs all around and a K custom splash me self. Rock On
