If it can't carry six 6'+ 250# people and their stuff while pulling a trailer that weighs twice the vehicle's own weight at interstate speeds all day long I have no interest in it.

It doesn't matter if the Oscar Meyer truck comes in first, or second, or even last. It's always a weiner.

My vote is for the hot dog car, at least you won't go hungry while stylin' down the road in that.

Now you are breaking my heart. That looks like one of my two mini-dachshunds that I used to have. They got old, and went on to happier hunting. I am still a vampire. I would shed a tear, if I had any left. Sylvester the cat also this weekend left us and went to happy hunting ground. I had to sing the Choctaw death song for him.
