    Show us your pickup truck

    In the UK we dont have pickup trucks and the ones we do are dismally small. In N America you have some pretty big ones, all kitted out. Show some pics.

    Sooner or later I'll see one that has buzzed me. I just know it. Probably the white truck down in Dalton.

    Because nobody would believe it, I took a quick picture of the average mpg I got on Shorty. Even I didn't believe it. You can tell by my 'HOLY crap!' (not crap but something else) words coming out of my mouth in the reflection in the mirror.

    Yeah right. That's probably just your current speed in mph.

    I drive a small Japanese truck -- a 1983 Toyota. 2.4L engine, maybe 90 HP on a good day, 'bout 25 mpg. Great truck, and I love having the camper shell.

    Lucky. Small trucks are a dying breed here. They pretty much only come in huge and excessively huge these days.

    Yep, there are no small pickups anymore. Tacomas are the size of full size pickups 15 years ago.

    Man, I was bummed when Toyota uglified the Tacoma. 90s & early 2000s had great style. Now they look bloated.

    Not only is the size ridiculous, but they just aren't pickup trucks anymore. They're luxury cars with beds.

    A week or so ago, I got to drive a 1986 stake-bed Toyota Hilux (aka "pickup"). 4-speed, dually, power nothing... It's more of a serious truck than pretty much anything sold today.

    Nice truck.

    I inherited my wife's '86 when we got married in 1995. She paid a little less than $6K new. We sold it in 2001 and bought an '02 tacoma.

    Toyota's have been good to me. The '93 was fine (22R-E engine as I remember), the T-100 was ok but, needed some more power. My '00 Tundra is my favorite truck all-time. Smooth running.

    (Oh, that's Julie 'PCH'...she's been smooth rolling PCH for 20yrs. now)

    03 Toyota Tacoma. Probably the latest version of a Tacoma that I like. My friend has a sweet 89 Toyota pickup

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    There's a '99 Tacoma under there. This is from last winter, but it's gonna happen again way too soon for me!

    i can see that these trucks would be useful as above pics, but how often do you need to carry so much stuff?
