"I'm not sure why so many people drive huge trucks & SUVs when they seldom, if ever, haul anything. We've always liked having one very small car with great gas mileage and one compact or midsize sedan or small SUV/minivan for hauling kids/stuff. We don't really haul much stuff any more." - alstromeria


Where I live it's redneck as hell and it's a status symbol to have a big truck with humongous tires like a Dodge Durango or a Ford F250 and/or a big gas guzzling SUV. They are everywhere. And I don't have a problem with that if there is more than one person in the vehicle and they work construction or haul wood or something but mostly when I drive around town run
