    Why would anybody have an attitude toward a Hummer driver other than to feel sorry for their stupidity.

    A Hummer 2 is a re-bodied Silverado and a Hummer 3 is a re-bodied Colorado.

    They got taken on the price for those common trucks.

    Looks like a rear engine car. Notice the air vents in the side at the rear.

    If I do buy one more car in my life, it will be even smaller than my Scion. But this is likely my last car.
    Outbacks are also good in the mud. Point it and go.

    Now there really are people who need pick up trucks and I don't mind if they have them.



    Yes, there is certainly a connection between those two. Psychologists need to speak here.
    Do you think you have a say over what people drive?

    Of course not, I am a libertarian. It was kinda figure of speech.

    I was just using Hummer as a general term for oversized "see my huge penis" vehicles in general. But this morning, I almost got hit by a Hummer who whipped his penis out of his parking space without noticing me behind him. Fortunately, no collision.

    But really I meant I don't knock people who drive huge vehicles UNLESS they crab about gas prices in which case I respond by

That said, there's a place for small cars in urban cities on both coasts that may work to their advantage with a few models. If they kill off RAM and some of the iconic retro cars like the Charger and Challenger due to their full control, I'll go back to becoming a Ford man.
    the car dealers around here are saying the last few years Dodge trucks have actually held their own with the Ford and Chevy trucks at the car sales. I don't like small cars and would never buy one as long as 18 wheelers share the road with them.

    Last year, I heard all this crying about the price of gas. But the best selling vehicles were heavy pickup trucks. So, apparently that $3.50 gas didn't ruin the economy. But some of us need a vehicle that is small but carries a decent load of groceries and such.
    We bought a relatively new Ford Focus hatchback and I love it. It has a digital screen right in the middle between the speedometer and the RPM guage. So you tend to look at it more than you do the speedometer. One of the options on the digital screen is the average MPG's. What's really cool about this is that my focus (pun not intended) is on making that number bigger than it is making my speedometer number bigger while I drive. I still drive responsibly which to you idiot drivers out there means WITH TRAFFIC. I say that because some people tend to believe the slower they drive the safer it is... meanwhile there are collisions piling up behind them.

    Anywhoo... around 27 mpg's in the city and around 40 mpg's when I'm on a roadtrip if I keep my tires filled up well.

    When I lived in phoenix I was laughing all the time at the concrete cowboys. They put on their cowboy hats, boots, huge belt buckles and jump into their jacked up 4WD giant dually trucks and go clubbing. Their trucks never have a dent nor see any unpaved road and they themeselves would piss their pants if they ever saw a cow IRL.

    It's a lot like the new Harley crowd. Just role playing through life.
