Living in a rural farming area, I see lots of pickup trucks.  They can be broken down into three basic classes

1) Work trucks.  White, stripped F150s with company logos.  "Ya got heating and AC, that's enough"
2) Farm trucks- beat to hell 20+ year old Dodges that look like they're held together with bailing wire.  This is because they are
3) Trucks like this. Almost always with lift kits and enormous tires but perfect paint, like they never go off road.  Comes standard with "Liberal Hunting Permit", "Blue Lives Matter" and "Trump is our God" bumper stickers.

I always laugh at the raised pickups with the oversized tires. I'll be sitting next to them and the light will go green and the light will go green and my car will quickly and quietly get up to speed. Meanwhile, the farking pickup will accelerate slower and make noise like it's in a god damn drag race just to get up to 60 kph. They're like Harleys. People must buy them just because they make lots of noise.

I judge them by the hitch.
1) A big rusty ball hitch
2) A ring or shackle welded directly to the frame
3) none.

I'd be all over a truck the size of the original S10, especially if I could get a nice bed cover for it.

Which is to say tiny.  A normal sized person could not sit on one unless it was an extra cab (especially the S-10).  Then the Dakota came along, and made things livable with a regular cab.  I had a '95 with the V6 and the requisite timing-chain slapping that they all did over the course of their lifetimes.

The reason they no longer sell original sized S10 and Ranger pickups is because there is little to no profit in vehicles of that type.   The kind of people who bought Rangers and S10 type trucks were people who were using them as actual utility vehicles.  They used them for work, or DIY, etc.   The car makers couldn't load up a Ranger or S10 cowboy Cadillac style and sell them for $70K.

did they hire the same idiot who monster trucked all the First Order vehicles for the Star Wars sequel trilogy?

also...it looks like forward visibility from the drivers seat would block the first 2-3 car lengths in front of that hideous thing.

thats probably safe.

I also love that it would likely cost a couple months rent to replace the tires.

Back in the day both Ford and GM sold large numbers of car based pickups like this for example.   Go to an old car show and gave a look at one of these in the flesh.  They're tiny by modern car standards.   Are you suggesting that everyone alive in 1960 was under five feet tall?  The reality is that even a six foot tall man can easily fit into a car like this....provided he doesn't weight 275 pounds.   The diff between then and now is that most Muricans have become super-sized, and I'm not talking vertically.

If I could afford a boat and a truck, that looks like it would be a good truck to tow a boat with. And because flags on trucks is the new thing to do, I could get a gold one with Jo as a snake coiled around Trump and Biden, slowly suffocating them. But, I don't have a boat, so I don't need a truck yet.

If anyone wants to buy me a boat, something like this will do just fine...

I have owned a 2006 Mazda 3, a 2005 Volvo S40, and a 2008 Honda Civic. I easily fit in all of them

And in all of your vehicles, they have back seat areas that don't limit the travel of the driver's seat adjustment tracks.  In the S-10, the seat literally backs up against the back of the cab.  I'm only 5'10" and I find the S-10 very cramped, and I weigh 180.  I could not daily drive one.  Oddly enough, the 90's S-10 trucks are even smaller than Gen1.  The Ranger is tolerable.

While I agree with you on New Amreicans being fatasses, if you mean "large numbers" as in an average of 7,000 - 10,000 Rancheros a year in the 60's, then you're right.  However, compared to the 80's -2000's Ranger, selling at minimum 60,000 to well over 120,000 units a year, it's not even in the same county.

It's cool looking. I mean, you could build out a small 300 square foot apartment in the engine compartment. But that's also cool.

The tiny slit that passes as a windshield is for insurance purposes only. In order to navigate this "pickup truck", I assume the driver is either wearing a set of Immersive 3D googles or has a complete 360 degree wrap around display in the "cockpit".

Also cool!!!

Basically, I love this thing. But then again, I'm "special" with unusual vehicles. I would kill for Musk's cybertruck.

I've got a love/hate relationship with the cybertruck.  The specs are amazing but the exterior looked too artsy.
It's grown on me over time, but I don't know if it will fill the same space in my heart as a classic truck outline.
I don't fault it for being what it is tho. Concepts are supposed to provoke a reaction.

What bothers me is that a truck can provoke a reaction against the truck fans which seems to make no sense.
If a car is not my thing I don't think less of the people whose thing it is. It's art. It's personal taste.
This truck doesn't even seem that outlandish. The big grill and Square body is exaggerated but a common theme going back decades.
It doesn't seem like it's worth a complaint article.

Well, I (for one) hope it does come with 3D VR goggles that allow the driver unprecedented visibility. (Actually, that would be a majorly huge car improvement, car manufacturers. There you go, a freebee).

The "snout" of the vehicle seem super pointless... Unless you're making it available for living space.
