Re: [DML] My DeLorean Hit an F150....

F100/F150 has been the largest selling single model vehicle of any type (including passenger cars and minivans) in the United States for 33 years. There are a lot of Americans who like them other than me.

As stated, I tried with little success to explain the American affinity for pickup trucks to Brits (and future independent Scots) when I was over there in January. You all don't get it, and I know that. But that doesn't change the truth: most Americans like trucks (and truck like SUV's), not just me.
