You folks may be experts about spinning cats and toast, but you know
NOTHING about pick-up trucks! The "Rancheros" and "El Camino" are NOT
pick-up trucks -- they are bastardized automobiles PRETENDING to be
real trucks. No self-respecting member of red-neck society would be
caught DEAD in one of those urban "pick-up cars!" Why, you can't even
hang a gun rack in 'em!
Now, a 3/4-ton Dodge RAM with a Vortec V-10, supercab and massive
banks of deer-shocking fog lights -- THAT'S a pick-up truck!
(Who drives a beat-up 1977 Jepp Cherokee with a leaky water pump
and no muffler -- but it's a real TRUCK.)
(And don't get me started on whimpified "sport utility vehicles"
that break at the sight of the first talus slope...)
