Thumbs up That funny moment when...

...You're sitting in traffic on your way to work or school (in my case i was on my way to summer school), and as you're stopped you look to your left and right to see a pre-2000 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner and an early 2000 Nissan Frontier and they're both looking at you, then you think, "Damn straight bitches, my truck is way sexier than yours." I thought i'd share my experience, even though i'm definitely not the only one to have this occasion.. Feel free to add yours!

..you're sitting at a traffic light, and your idle starts to jump up and down, then your idle dips to 300 and the truck almost dies.

Yea, it wasn't funny when it started, but now it makes me laugh.

Haha. Why's it do that? I'd shit myself if my truck started doing that...

Usually its the other way around in my city, im at light between oh I dunno, a lifted or lowered Silverado, and a brand new Ram or Tacoma quad cab or something and I can sense them scoffing at me. The Ford hate is pretty strong in my town. I get fags in Silverados w/ loud exhaust revving at me all the time.

I dont really live in a truck network. So i love Idling beside a beat up sunfire, idling like a tractor with purple bubbly window tint and I look down at them, they look up at me and they think they can smoke my truck. Thats right *itches, I have a 4L, Vroooooooooooooooom past them while they sunfire ticks and poofs behind me

I'm sitting behind any vehicle with a temporary new purchase permit on it anywhere, and realizing that my entire truck payment since 2002 has been $45.00 a month in liability insurance, and fuel, and their money pit is just beginning with a bank loan (possibly), full coverage insurance, etc.

It's either my plugs and wires, or my TC lockup circuit.

It could be plenty of things though. I've already replaced the IAC, but it's an Autozone special, so who knows if it's any good.

Haven't really had any in the ranger, but I love pulling up next to people with my trailblazer ss in mustangs and camaros, or car s like that not knowing what I have until they try to race me and I drop the hammer down. Just the look on there faces at the next stop is priceless. That look of disappointment and confusion.

That funny moment when...
You are driving on the freeway at 70+MPH,
and a POLICE car flies by you to chase down
the rice rocket that passed you by
