It might seem odd to get emotionally attached to an automobile, but in truth, I have done so with pretty much every one I have ever owned. Some have been with love, and one specific one, which I won’t go into here, was actually a relationship of hate. Storm, my 2011 Toyota Tacoma, which was named Storm by a reader of my blog at the time, is one of the ones that it has been a loving relationship.
She has just over 100,000 miles on her, and for those that know Toyota 4×4 vehicles, that means that she is just now getting “broken in” so to speak. Sadly, a deer decided to jump in front of her on Tuesday morning, less than a quarter of a mile from our house, and while the damage was not very severe, it was more than enough to mess up the front passenger side, as you can see in the above picture.
She has been at the body shop since Tuesday afternoon, and will stay there until at least Monday afternoon. I can’t wait for her to get home, even though I have a rental, I miss her
