Ive seen them towing offshore race boats also.

But I saw one at Whole Foods last week. It was the epitome of uber gay.

What a colossal piece of idiocy. Jealousy has nothing to do with it. It's just pure, unadulterated loathing.

I saw a dude who had backed his H2 into a parking spot at a whole foods. Watching hippies' heads pop off was HYSTERICAL.

I've always wondered why the hippies have such a hardon for that vehicle. After all, its just a pickup with an SUV body! They should be hating suburbans, Excursions, etc. just as much. ...but they don't. Seems to be somewhat illogical.

Now, driving around in an H1 would be a different story... speaking of H1s there was a Reserve/Nasty Guard unit on the side of the road with a broke-down H1 on Sat. They have a version with a higher, hard top now. Hmmmm can someone say 'surplus?'

H1's (at least the diesel ones) probably get better mileage than an H2, just like my diesel Excursion would get better mileage than an Expedition or F-150 (of a similar year).

Nuance and mantras don't typically co-exist.

The funny thing is those hippies were probably driving cars that wouldn't pass smog or a safety inspection

Same people who are anti eating animals with leather interior in thier cars

Nice comparison of a resto-mod and a full custom.

I'd be very happy to have either one in my garage.

Yeah, I got lectured by a veggie for in the local bar for eating a cheeseburger. Said that animal had a personality, feelings, etc. When she picked up her leather gloves to leave I pointed out the very same to her. She left without a word, and quite hastily.

I may be biased, but I don't think that Freightliner makes "cobbled together" trucks.

Now maybe SportChassis just buys a 'glider' kit and throws the rest of it together - I don't know (I would guess that may actually be what they do).

I do agree, I don't care for the looks.

I think he means the pickup bed, where the body lines don't even come close to matching up, the tacked on fender flares, and the cheesy JC Whitney looking grill... for starters.
