      I read of a Brazilian truck that was FWD and had straight trailing arms and coil spring rear suspension. The reason? So that the center of the bed could be lowered for loading and unloading. I...

      I could sure use a truck, but not a new one of any type. If I had to get one it'd be the smallest and highest mileage comfortable 4-seater available. Since I won't be dailying it I'll be looking for...

      Gotcha. I had forgotten you don't have the entire car there. Too bad for Scotty Ruxton.

      Of course it's a truck.

      A van is a truck, small trucks based on cars are trucks, hell, a two-wheeler is a hand truck.

      Even this is a truck.

      Thenphrase "play to your strengths" comes to mind.

      The Ridgeline is their truck. It's well thought-out for the suburban family, including a trunk and a dual-hinged gate to be able to access that...

      I'm always glad to see this thread pop up. I can't imagine having that car in my garage. If I did I think I'd sleep in there just so it would be the first thing I saw every day when...

      Are hey painted on or something? I could get the stickers off with no problem, as there are chemicals for that. (I'm in the graphics biz.)

      Nope, I don't buy it. It was internal branding when they rated the original 1.8T at 170 hp in Volkswagens and 180 hp in Audis, but they wouldn't put different rods in it because of politics and/or...
