But I calculated replacement value of all my added stuff, plus what I paid for it new in 2008 is well north of that. Insurance adjuster comes today.

TPD did start an Arson report. I got a Victim notice this morning in text and email.

The insurance adjuster thought Pack Rat. Says Toyotas sheath their wires in a soy based material that is like candy to pack rats.

www.carcomplaints.com/...ring.shtml

Word to the wise. Get a strobe light for under your hood.

Suit was dismissed.

The rodents got to my moms FJ a second time. Same wire as the first time and the same cost to repair it.

The first wires the pack rats chewed on my old Chevy pick up were the wires to the strobe light. I hate those little shits with the heat of a thousand suns.

The first moment I laid eyes on the Precious.
Sept 5th, 2008.
23 miles on the Odo
South Bay Toyota, Los Angeles.
After a national search to find an MT6, sun fusion color, with Offroad Package & Roof Rack.



It's almost surreal. We've had so many adventures together (With all of you). And I'm going to really miss it.

From and including Friday, September 5, 2008
To, but not including Saturday, August 29, 2020 (04:00 hrs)

Result: 4376 days
    It is 4376 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date.

    Or 11 years, 11 months, 24 days excluding the end date.

    Or 143 months, 24 days excluding the end date.

A beautiful thing while it lasted. Am I the only one who feels like there should be a funeral? I can't be the only one who likes my truck more than I like most people.
