February 2012 : TOP RIDE Jeremias's 2007 Speedway Blue / Takata Green X-Runner How I Got My X-Runner: It was early 2007 and I was in need of a new vehicle. I noticed an awesome looking black truck on my base in New Orleans but I had no idea what it was. I just let it go for a while because I didn't see it again for another couple of months. When I finally caught a glimpse of the tail gate all it said was X-Runner. I had to find the manufacturer of this magical vehicle that caught my eye in such a way as to almost make me drool. I went to the local Toyota dealership and tried to get one. Shocker, there were none in stock. The closest one was a few weeks away and in Speedway Blue which is the color I wanted. I just wanted to have a different look and stand out just a little. It was a little steep for my price range, but I sucked up the payments anyways. The days went by slowly I waited with cell phone in hand. Finally the call I had been waiting for. It was so pretty just sitting there freshly detailed, perfectly stock, ready for me to take it into my arms like a bad-ass newborn punk-rocking baby honey badger. Purchased in August and have never wanted to let go so far.
