The things you take for granted
I went away up north last week (lovely Paraburdoo) and had the use of a diesel Toyota Hilux 4WD crew cab while I was away.
Got used to it pretty quickly (they're damned bouncy off road, though!) but the amazing thing happened when I got back...
On the Saturday morning, I washed the XR 'cos it had got covered in dust while I was away (I forget to ask my house-sitter to do it!) and then hopped in it to go to the shops. Well, what can I say? It's amazing how quickly you forget what something feels like!
The clutch was positive, the steering was like it was on rails, the acceleration was amazing (those hilux's are gutless!) and the brakes, OMG, I almost went through the windscreen at the first set of traffic lights. No BS, I remember swearing at the time as I pressed 'em a little too hard.
I still love my car :s6:
