I am curious about one thing Joe, why do you despise the H2 so much? What
has this vehicle ever done to you? Has it given your car an evil look? Has
it pushed your car around during recess? Does it talk about your car behind
its back? I mean I was at the movies tonight and was parked next to a
Nissan Titan, and it was bigger than my H2. The Ford Excursion is bigger as
well. What about the H2 SUT? Is it different because it is kind of a
truck, and therefore more usable?
I really am curious for my own benefit, because I don't look at any car with
loathing. They are all made to the standards the Federal Government has put
forth and therefore fair game for ownership in my book.
I find the tiny lowered cars/trucks to be more hazardous. Heck all I ever
see when I am behind them is those damn sparks flying around making my eyes
The visibility thing still gets me. If I am ever driving down the road and
am behind a big rig, I wait for a safe passing zone and make my move. I
don't sit back and get grumpy with them, I back off enough to make sure I
can see past them.
I am watching C.S.I. Miami right now on ReplayTV. One thing I like to do is
jam to The Who while driving our H2. I talked my wife into the Pewter one
that's the same as on the show...

"How many countries has your car liberated?"
Just about the same amount as the Hummers have liberated, aka zero.
