Cool truck.

Same argument as with the Hummer: wheelbase too wide to take it off-road....

Each to her own, y'know? One man's waste is someone else's necessity. I know a couple of people in the back of beyond who could make good use of a truck like this one.

"You think about the people who haul big horse trailers, big boats, all that sort of thing. They have big egos, and you can see where that goes," Matich says. "I'll have a camouflage version next year. Hunting and fishing lodges should snap that up."

I think that just about sums it up for me...

Perhaps it is going for biggie size fries/soda that necessitates a biggie auto?

Americans just love motorcycles (cue to Born To Be Wild, Steppenwolf) or 18-and-up-wheelers (cue to Convoy, C.W. McCall) cause they still think it's a wild and wooly west out there ...

However, me and my sailboat are different (cue to Sailing, Christopher Cross) ... and we're environmentally friendly and oh so cute ...

oh I dont know - this vehicle has its purpose. Your average preppie with too much money is not going to buy this truck as they might with an H2.

This is a working mans truck that needs to tow the back hoe or a tractor to job sites etc...

Cool truck. I want one. Maybe two. Looks perfect for hauling huge horse trailers.

Cue unplesant mental image of a man attacking huge truck with a bike lock. ;)

Seems a little militant if you ask me. Why is everyone so threatned by this? Are you all driving those honda hybrid cars or what?

People will have legitimate reasons for owning such a truck....they sound like they would be great for repo companies and small tow truck operators.

I personally like my truck over small economical cars - sure makes towing my horse trailer easier :)

That's bad news. I'll need to build a two truck garage.

attacking huge truck with a bike lock.

I guess the fact that my bike is named Rossinante does not help my case. :)

another brilliant marketing scheme.

i'm sure that some people could put this truck to good use, but the first time i see one driving around the city i'll just have to chuckle and shake my head, suckers.

i just know that the person driving this truck will be the first one to slow down and avoid pot-holes at all costs.

Hmm I wouldn't love to parallel park that thing, but anyways I can't park my Volvo straight so :)

The truck might come in handy for commercial use, but perhaps there are better alternatives for that kind of use.

Personally I doubt that the truck will sell, it doesn't have the same history as the Hummer does, I mean it's way cooler driving the same vehicle as the US Army does, the H2 however is another story :) Oh well just a reflection :)

There are people that own working trucks, and people that own trucks. Working trucks are identifiable by the dents and dings in side panels and in the bed. "Trucks" are often seen with low-profile tires, have been lowered and the tailgate replaced with a "cargo net". They often are seen with spinners on them. They can't really be used as trucks anymore.

That magnificent hunk of metal would make a great "working truck". Doesn't look like it would have any trouble hauling a John Deere tractor or a 12-horse trailer. Or 500 bails of hay. Yep, I want one.

Doesn't the fact that your bike is named Rossinante oblige you to do stuff like that?

I hope that's not meant literally...

Uh...ya didnt read the entire sentence? or was it easier to try and justify your side by not quoting the entire thing?

<snip>

And yes I preffer a truck over a car - any car - economical or even the gas guzzling lincolns.

I am an american and I am free to buy whatever I wish with my hard earned money.

Could be another reason to do such crazy stuff. But the bike lock is so ... primitive and lack efficiency. Destroying technical structures and vehicules was part of my job for over 15 years. I can think of many other ways to destroy such an obcenity without hurting any innocent people passing by. All this using 95 % recycled material, but I cant go into details here, other mods will kick me. :)

Problem is the country you live in, is on some planet, pal. On this planet all living things try to breathe the very same air. That quoted sentence above reads so offensive to me, I cannot reply without going into politics. (It's not allowed here, political discussions always turn sour).

I will just let Lou Reed do the talk. Just Google for "Last Great American Whale [google.com]" and read the lyrics a couple of times. The song ends by "Stick a fork in their <bleep> and turn them over, they’re done"

I share his ideas.

I tried googling for that, and I got a site with a bunch of annoying popups.
