Fun to mess with the peanut minds those who assign the driver's character, finances etc. based on their wheels.

rustbucket winter beater pickup with non matching cap
or Jaguar
or suburban
or DW's Caddy

How did character and finaces or mental stability change if driven all four on the same day at different times?

IIRC Howard Hughes in his heyday drove some real beaters.
Oh and Barry Diller drives a Maserati.

There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.

I test drove a new Miata, but wound up with a used 2004 Audi TT in 2010. I was planning to move to the mountains and wanted 4wd. All the bells and whistles including turbo for $15000. Had 34k miles on it. It now has about 60k on it and is just a hoot to drive.

That's the same way I feel about the Versa S, with a 6 speed manual transmission. It's got a lot of spunk.

Thanks for posting a photo of the truck. Truly amazing.

The wilderness is calling and I must go.
