Driveshaft Drama: The Final Chapter–I’m a Papa!


Dude I gotta pee! ©2011It’s a boy!

Or a girl.

Ok, ok, it’s a TRUCK!

I know that ships are always “she” unless you’re Russian then ships are “he.”  But trucks can be a he or a she and I haven’t driven it long enough to figure out it’s personality or it’s gender.  But when I do, then I’ll have to pick out a name for it.  (Note added Dec 24th — I named it “Tonks”)

Regardless, it’s MINE!  All Mine!  (so are the payments, but we won’t ruin the moment by talking about those!)   I likes it though! I really really really REALLY likes it.  And, just so we keep this whole “he’s having truck problems” related somehow to “fitness and health”,  here’s the connection:..

Being fit also includes being mentally healthy.

Not having a lot of stress is part of being mentally healthy.

And not having to worry about my truck breaking down reduces stress!

Plus, shopping is always therapeutic!  🙂

The vital stats for my new baby are 2009 Toyota Tacoma, 4.74% interest rate, 72 month loan.  And I got it for a steal!  Basically I got it for the “trade in value” of the truck.  The blue book retail value is over $20K and I got it for under $17K!!!!  Only 35,000 miles on it and still under factory warranty!  Woo Hoo!  This is the newest, prettiest truck I’ve ever owned.  I’ve never had a vehicle still under warranty.  I’ve never had a truck so close to being “brand new”.  I’m one very happy cowboy!  Yeeeeeeeeeee  Haaaaaaaaaaaaw!

Here are some pictures of my new truck:
