I try and keep it pretty clean except for this little oops.. I got really lucky on this roll. Only got the bed. Cab, Door, Can-Back etc were untouched. If you look really close that is Junie the rock dog escaping out the driver side window.

That's one tough looking truck you have there mate, but what the hell is a tacoma????

That would be what we call our trucks now. (1995 and newer)

Older then 1995. The Hilux branding was only noted in our owners manual and shop manual. But the US felt it important to just call them pickups. But us TRUE Hilux lovers know better. ;)
