    I drive a Subaru, my fourth.
    Could be, if I drive into a bunch of morons in the road, they will wave me through, assuming I’m one of them...
    If not, the AWD and ground clearance should make it easy to drive over...obstructions.

    The Jeep compensates for one of the Subarus.
    You're still bi-curious :)

    We have 2 also. Had to scrape the factory installed "Hillary for Prez" sticker off of the back bumper :) (just kidding)

    AWD, good gas mileage and reliable.

    Know why the Brats had two seats in the truck bed? Because tariffs on a pickup truck were higher than a coupe, so they put 2 cheap throwaway seats in the bed (that were cheaper than the extra tariffs would be) and sold it as a non-truck.

    And now you know. :cowboy:

    I always thought they were cool little rides. Never had one though.

    Wonder what happens if they ask if they know anyone with belt fed firearms mounted in a pickup truck?

    Pretty much. You not only know all the words to Les Miserables songs... but have the costumes in your closet too.

    Subarus make a lot of sense if you live in an area with hills and snow. Also if you live a long way from a grocery store or work you might save a few dollars per trip compared to driving a truck.

    I recently moved from Los Angeles to bumf***, North Florida.

    It seems like EVERYone here drives a truck. I mean everyone. A friend of mine is a brain surgeon, and his daily is an F-250 with a molon labe plate.

    In LA, no one drives a truck. OK, I drove a ‘70 F-100 with manual steering and 3 on the tree, but that was because I am a hipster, not a workin’ man.

    Still, LA is no different. There, as here, man is confronted by eternal question:

    If you don’t own a pickup, How the F can you manage life?

    No one needs to have truck with a grill that could smack Kareem Abdul Jabaar in the forehead.

    When the Founders wrote “trucks,” they meant good old-fashioned step-sides for pulling stumps and hauling labor gangs, not the high-capacity assault monsters designed to intimidate and kill our children.

    I support sensible legislation to limit the number of chrome grill-slots to fewer than three.

    I've been a pickup owner for decades. If you ever met me, "redneck" is not likely how you would describe me.

    There's news and there's propaganda.

    A coherent story will tell you who, what, where, when, why, and how.

    News will focus mostly on the who, what, where, and when. Maybe a little why and how as the story requires.

    Propaganda focuses mainly on the why and how, with a smidge of the other W's for perceived legitimacy.

    Oh, and millionaires drive trucks. Not the fancy Beverly Hills ones. The small business owner, millionaire nextdoor type.
