I suppose it is just much like the Jeep wagoner incarnation, it started off as a tank and ended up a beer can. Let's face it things aren't going to revert back to the way they used to be, things like leather seats, blue tooth and automatic opening doors sell. Strait axles, big V8s, big tires and rubber floor liners don't. I have to admit having a Mercedes would be nice but I would trash it anyhow with what I do so a cushy vehicle just is not practical for me, an old pickup fills the bill fine for me. I am not sure how many people on this site would have the income to throw down on a $60,000 + vehicle but I certainly do not. I find it hard to get excited over something I can't get under the hood and play around with, I would take that big wad of cash if hypathetically I had it and build my own vehicle to fit my own desires rather than buy a cookie cutter knock off vehicle that everyone else has. I bought a Jeep Wrangler and drove it a couple years and discovered that I was driving a bland vehicle regaurdless of what I did to it. I look now at parking lots and one out of every five vehicles look just like my old Wrangler and I don't even notice them anymore, they have become the VW bug of 4WDs. It's kinda sad that the old uniqueness of cars and trucks have gone to the wayside and you can't tell the difference between a KIA, Ford, Chevy or Dodge anymore, they all look the same to me.
