Here in West Texas, there are many more trucks than cars. And we have real TRUCKS, not the little 4 door 5' bed thins you see in every home improvement big box, we have a lot of those too. But the number of one-ton duallys is amazing, they are everywhere and they are used as trucks. We drive a sedan and it is nothing to stop at a light and being looking at the bottom of 4 trucks around us. Our local Lowes even has a whole lane of truck-trailer double long parking spaces. We bought a cross over to raise ourselves up to the same height as a truck and it didn't work, so we went back to a sedan. Hybrid, 40+ mpg in a comfortable large car is pretty good. And it lets me burn more real gas in my 1950 Studebaker or my wife's 1951 Olds. Lately I have been looking for a truck, a beater truck and can't believe how hard it is to fine just a single cab, long bed pickup. Everyone has the short bed extended cab Sunday trucks, but just try to find a simple old fashion pick up. And then if I could I want an orphan brand, if possible. Oh, well, guess it'll just be something old and useful.
