Wait, I had parked a surrey with a fringe on top right here.

You may need to get used to seeing Toyotas in unexpected places.They may crop up in NASCAR in a year or two.

Not a bad job ... I guess I just don't understand the phoniness of someone buying a knockoff highend car ...

Like the guy at the marina a couple of years back ... driving what everyone thought was a Ferrari 348 ... until it looked just like a Fiero inside to me ...

Guy actually got offended that I questioned whether or not it was a legit Itlalian Stallion ...

Who was he trying to kid ...? :confused:

Brad, that's amazing! There's guy who lives in Duncan B.C. who does the same thing. The car is a Fiero but he has spent what must be thousands on Ferrari emblems and rims, steering wheel you name it. He could have probably bought a low end used Ferrari for what he's spent on the ridiculous **** box. It's red.

Why make a copy when you can get the real thing (http://www.xhumvee.com) for only $32,000?

I'm no fan of big for it's own sake, or of Hummers for that matter. What struck me about this was that it gave you a completely modular makeover of the original Toyota, which is itself a very reliable and tough vehicle. So you get Hummer roominess and versitility with Toyota mileage, reliability, and spare parts availability. That's why I posted the link.
