Mine too, except I still consider it a toy. It would make more sense for me to still be driving my 240SX...
I got my truck when fuel was at or about $4/gallon over the summer. The Mazda dealer I went to was selling Mazda3's at $2500 over MSRP, had virtually none in stock, and had over fifty Mazda trucks. I paid less for a B4000 SE 4x4 loaded to the gills than anyone was paying for a Mazda3, by thousands.
I wouldn't have bought the truck had the price not been what it was. I had always had that twinkle in my eye about trucks and they just represented an outstanding value and a cheap way for me to realize the truck dream. Although it is my daily driver, it's always going to be a toy! And I love it!
