  • Them tundras be sharin that trannie with them t100 ones, and that pumpkin and transfer case with them tacomas now. They also be sharin lots of other doo-dads with them tacomas too. So much for them tundras bein "all new". Just that factory strechin that truth on em, same as that factory callin em "full size" now. That factory has tricked a few into em, but them that use them eyes be knowin that truth on em for sure. Good luck on this one now!

    Still no answer on that American-made myth. Just more smoke blowin' from the Rube!

    I don't like the sound of that one....
  • I have a 99 F150 Xcab 5.4 4x4. Prior to that, I had a 96 T100 Xcab 4x4 SR5 and a 94 Toyota 4x4 V6. I actually really liked the T100, but with 2 kids the 4 door cab just made more sense, and at the time the Tundra wasn't available, so I bought the Ford. I'm not knockin the Tundra, it's just that picture of bama's looked exactly like my T100 - you can't even tell the difference except for the wheels and door handle. I never really paid much attention that the side profile is just like the T100, unless you have the fender flares to set it apart.

    Dan...hmmm...

    We may make 1000 posts...
  • Aint it funny how them folks who got them "da Runt" still cant figure out it be one? This was that factory hintin at it for sure. Even with them hints they still be thinkin they got em a "full sizer" now. This be a real belly slapper for sure! Still aint heard no tells on folks workin them ones, what say too this one? Good luck on this one now!
  • Here be them simple truths on that tundra one:

    1) They aint got no haul
    2) They aint "full size"
    3) They be forien
    4) They be this years t100
    5) They break quick
    6) They aint UAW

    Them folks who got em be knowin them truths, but just cant be admittin too it. That truth be that truth now. Good luck on this one now!

    I agree, the Tundra has the same basic dimensions as the T-100. It's only slightly longer in the front third(8 inches). The rear seating is actually less in the Tundra because of the thick backrest and headrest. Everyone that had or has a T-100 says they are good trucks, just underpowered. With current and forecast gas prices, that fuel efficient, albeit gutless, engine sounds good! BTW, did you ever work that T-100? ;)
  • For me, that would be THE most compelling reason to buy one. And the biggest regret I will have about buying another GM. Those strikin', subvertin', sabatogin' political rats of UAW can go to hell for all I care.
  • Don't hold back on us now, give us that tell on how ya really be feelin on that UAW! Good luck on this one now!
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    have called Quad a Communist for that comment on the UAW....not to mention a few other names....LOL!! It's a good thing that Archie got promoted to the Chief of Police of Sparta....
  • LOL!!!

    Here is a link to her original post pirated from www.pickuptruck.com:

    And here is the original article:

    Has Libby been smoking too much of that bottom leaf tobacco she has been growing? Has she addled what little brain she has left? Does she really believe that she owns a '52? You be the judge.

    Here be the truth on them '52 Chevies:

    1) They ain't got no haul, do you be seein anything in the back of them midsize trucks? Do you see em pullin anything?

    2) They ain't fullsize, they don't look too big to me, I bet if a Tundra was parked next to one of those limited '52 Chevies, the Chevy might be lookin pretty tiny!

    3) They're for show, people own these midsize trucks cause they be chasin the fad. They want an antique, something nobody else has.

    4) Outdated, is there even suspension on that bad boy?

    5) Small engine, first V-8's appeared a few years later, they had a little 6 cylinder, with less power than a VW Beetle.

    6) Look at that pickup box, tell me that's fullsize!

    7) I bet those headlights were powerful!

    8) "In 1949 the gas tank was moved to inside the cab behind the seat back." Hmm, sounds safe-not only can you explode during a collision, you can also get high by the gas fumes. (Of couse, this might be a positive thing for justtheone)

    Justtheone, I'll post pics of me pulling a tractor or two with my Tundra when the tractor pullin' season comes along.
  • Lets hear some tells on folks workin that forien one. Aint heard no tells yet, ceptin for that one "haulin" them bicycles now. I be expectin not to be hearin much, as I aint seen none of em workin, cept doin that "hi-way haul" now. Good luck on this one now!
  • Yes, I actually did haul with my T100 - a 3800 pound boat. The 3.4 with the 5 speed and 4.something gears actually did a pretty nice job towing. The only time it felt underpowered was when I needed to pass someone uphill, other than that it was fine and knocked down 18-20 mpg consistantly.

    go away for four days and don't miss much...

    'bout 90 posts read and only one response.

    bama, i'd like to take you back to your post #947:

    "Sat 11 Nov '00 (08:03 AM)
    'I was responding to obyone who says everything GM
    makes is from mexico.'

    Obyone never said any such thing. You are
    sounding like BCO - make things up as you go."

    um, actually, if you read oby's post #443:
    "Fri 10 Nov '00 (09:50 PM)
    GM vehicles are MADE IN MEXICO....just to spite
    the union....mostly Tahoes and Yukons...and from
    the postings that I've read...the Mexicans do a
    better job..LMAO!!"

    he does say gm's are built in mexico. perhaps not ALL gm's, but he did say that gm's are made in mexico.

    more importantly to me is your last statement:
    "You are sounding like BCO - make things up as you go."
    i'm intrigued. what exactly have i "made up"? i mean, can you give me ONE example of where i've "made something up", lied, or intentionally deceived someone?

    thanks in advance.

  • Haulin a little john boat aint workin em. Folks be haulin them john boats with little cars round these parts. Still waitin on them tells of folks who be "workin" them forien ones. Good luck on this one now!
  • I'm sorry, 3800 pounds is a large boat.

    BTW...it's spelled "foreign"...
  • rwellbaum2rwellbaum2 Posts: 1,006
    anyone heard about the ford recall of their truck trannies?
  • Yup, "workin" them forien ones be haulin that 3800 pound john boat for some. This be where them that works them trucks, and them yuppies who be fad chasin be partin ways now. The workin man be haulin 7500 pounds on up with them US of A trucks, some even fifth wheelin with em day in and out. Where as that yuppie be thinkin that haulin a 3800 pound john boat be workin em hard. Get ya one of them little big3 ones if ya just goin haul a john boat now! Once again, any folk heard of any of them forien ones really workin? Lets hear a tell on it now. Good luck on this one now!
  • swobigswobig Posts: 634

  • rwellbaum2rwellbaum2 Posts: 1,006
    Yep! What little credibility justletone had is gone. Makes you wonder what else he's lying about!
    Good job Bama...Libbys going down quick on this latest tell. ;)
  • Still anit heard no tells on any folks workin them forien ones. Heard one tell of some folk haulin a john boat, but that be it. Where is all them folks who be "workin" them forien ones hard. Maybe they all be used up like them hi-lux ones now. Facts is facts, if ya work em, there goin break quick. So much for that quality myth of them toy ones now. Them head-gaskets still popin on em? Yup. What say too this one now? Good luck on this one now!

    I still like the pictures.. too bad it isn't his truck.. I thought it was great to have a '52 truck still up and running.. still great.. for the real owner..
  • bamatundrabamatundra Posts: 1,583
    Are you sure Libby? For all Libby knows - it blew its engine in '53 and has been sitting in that same spot for 47 years.

    Still blowing that bottom leaf smoke. Its bad enough being a hick - but a hick that lies?
  • Ya best go ask Donny if ya seeking that truth on it. Them without the knowin says this and that, but that truth be that truth. If ya truly seekin that truth, be askin Donny on it now. If ya lookin for a twistin of that truth, listen to the yuppie on it. Said it plain for all them seekin that truth back in #771, Facts is facts. Good luck on this one now!
