You know,"Easy Bake Oven" is crime slang for when the perpetrator puts the victim in the trunk of the car and lights it on fire.

They showed this on GMA, and it's an interesting truck. Lots of interesting gadgets.

``There is a place in the world for big trucks,'' Parry-Jones said. ``But we also need to make them more efficient, and make them cleaner.''

But not clean, and not too efficient, because that would cut into out our 40 year old male mid-life crisis market. And yes, there is a place in the world for big trucks. It's doing actual work liking hauling rocks or horse shiat on some farm in Iowa. It is not at the parking lot of the suburban Blockbuster with Bob "I subscribe to Maxxum" Studley. That's who this abomination is geared to.

I'm with you, Totsfeld. I love how folks go out and buy huge SUV's and try to justify owning them by saying that they're "for the snow". Then they call out of work when the first flake hits the ground.

The most satisfying thing that I can think of is the sight of an SUV on its roof in the median strip of an Interstate highway. It just proves that those things don't have any place on concrete. Hell, most of the time they don't have a place on dirt, either.

For all you tree hugging hippy freaks - suck on my Tonka. Pick-up trucks are useful. Maybe a F350 is a bit much for the Suburban commandos out there, but there's nothing wrong with a mid-size pickup. Next time your trying to move out of your apartment, call up your friend with the Prius, and try to get your couch across town with that.

My wife has a little Subaru Outback Sport. We routinely bury the little sucker in mud, sand, and anything the backwoods here in Florida can dish out. Have had water coming in the doors and over the hood (not recommended) at Tosahatchie State Reserve and Merrit Island NWR, spun cookies in deep sand at Ocracoke Island NC, and done offroads in WV mountains and the family farm. It will carry two surf boards, a kayak, five people, tons of fishing or hunting gear. It sneaks through overgrown scrub where big SUV's would be scratched and busted by low branches. 26 mpg, stable at high speeds - been where 99.9% of SUV's will never be - looks kinda gay though.

Finkboy: Next time, use the big boy voice. What us tree hugging hippy freaks (read: grownups) do is hire a mover. And yes, I don't have a problem with mid-size pickups. The gas mileage is reasonable and they actually have practical usage. But lets face it. The majority of truck buyers east of Kansas buy trucks because they are suckered in by the Marlboro Man commercials. The most hauling they will ever do is lugging spackle from the Home Depot.

It looks like a big ugly yellow Lincoln Navigator with a bed on it. I'd rather be seen driving the Turtlemobile around. I can't believe that Tonka wants anything to do with that monstrosity. If you want a truck, buy a Chevy Silverado. Now that is a TRUCK!
