New to the RAV4 Community

Hello friends, Larry from North Carolina. Bit of background, twice retired, first from the United States Marine Corps then secondly a retired LEO out of the State of Maine where I worked patrol and K9. Relocated to eastern NC about 4 years ago. My first new Toyota as the wife and I have been a dedicated Chevrolet family. Recently we decided to sell our GMC Denali and purchase something that would be a bit more economical as well as comfortable and nice appearance. We shopped around for nearly 3 months before we decided on the 2017 RAV4 XLE. The color of ours is "black currant", no more black cars for me! I also have a 1996 Impala SS that I truly love driving. Over the years I have had a fair number of collector cars ranging from 61, 62, 63, 64 Impala SSs, 54 Chevrolet truck, 68 Hemi Charger. The one I miss the most is my 61 Impala SS 348 tri power with factory 4 speed.

Retired, the wife and I enjoy metal detecting and the RAV4 will come in quite handy in hauling all of our detectors around.

Look forward to chatting with you folks as well as getting ideas of what I can do to further dress up the RAV4. We purchased on December 9th and I have already added factory running boards, splash guards, sill plate protectors, rear bumper protector, color matching door spears, window vents, weather tech front/rear mats as well as the cargo mat, and finally the class III trailer hitch with 2" receiver.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.
