    Not only do trucks get bigger every year, but at least where I live...EVERYONE has one. Let me put it this way: if your family has less than 4 people, you work construction, or on a farm....you DO NOT need a truck. If all these stupid kids around here stopped getting huge trucks for compensations sake, maybe gas wouldn't be $3 a gallon...

    I agree here, too. Where my dad lives if they get some snow flurries or a quarter inch of snow they close schools because nobody knows what to do! Where I live we get ice for three days straight and we still have school.

    I totally agree, PK. Usually, with a family of 4 or more there are better vehicles to get anyway (not that many of the "better" alternatives are any more fuel efficient, but still...

    lol my sister in law moved from where she was going to school in North Dakota to her new job based out of Memphis, Tenn. she said when a snow storm hit she could make better time throwing here lil S10 Blazer into 4wd and taking the ditch do to all the ppl who didnt know how to drive on ice and snow. the funny thing is up here there really isnt a big truck competition....lots of the high school kids drive cars or something along the lines of the lil blazers and cherokees and such or the parents old truck which is usually a stock half ton......alot of the farmers and ranchers will have a 3/4 or full ton. few large families have the large suburbans and such.......we had a 2003 Chevy impala that was great most the year but even it was to low to the ground for our general use in the winter. some of the other cars with more ground clearnce faired better but it was rather easy to high center....especially when the city snow removal crew was in the middle of clearing stuff..

    Exactly! I was talking about how everyone had one, not that euro cars were appropriate for my area.
    that makes no logic

    It would be sweet if all the scientists that actually got more than the godawful 2-3% efficiency out of internal combustion engines stopped getting assassinated and their work stolen/destroyed. Gotta run right now, but 2 good stories in an hour or so.
