"All I want from a car is to get from point A to point B and back again as reliably and economically as possible."

What could be more anti-American than this? I bet this guy never had a RAM or F-250 and laid rubber in front of Dairy Queen.

Asi es, mi amigo! If you will indulge me, I do have a kinda' funny story to relate regarding this all-too-common American mindset. Many years ago, I was working downtown San Diego in the IT department of one of our major employers. The head of the department was the only woman nerd in the group of about 7 of us. All of us male nerds were infatuated with her. We had walked down to a restaurant for lunch and were leaving to return. A gentleman who appeared to be an extra from the movie Deliverance in his jacked up pickup truck with four-foot high tires laid rubber as he exited the parking lot next to the restaurant. Our celebrated department head made a comment speculating about the minuscule size of the gentleman's reproductive organ. After an appropriate pause, a fellow nerd said, "I have a Honda Civic." I chimed in, "I have a Toyota Tercel."

Oh, well. I thought it was funny.

P.S. Could someone actually lay rubber with a Toyota Previa? A friend of mine told me that this minivan has a supercharger, whatever that is.
