This Maverick looks like a freaking Honda Ridgeline which is about the ugliest vehicle on the road.:scratch:

Don’t any of these car companies have original ideas anymore?!?:anyone:

The biggest issue with the original idea concept is that the NHTSA and our sue happy society prevents vehicles outside of the norm from being built. Furthermore, aerodynamics do not change, so for the sake of efficiency there’s more or less a standard set of body lines used. Between efficiency in manufacturing, aerodynamics, safety, and limiting liability, creativity has been almost completely stifled.

Still called a Bronco. Still called a Mustang. Dumb. But like said above they have run out of ideas. Last domestic I bought was my wifes Yukon in 2010. Probably the last.

yeahhh, same. I hate to say, but my 2015 BMW M4 that put down 550hp was not only the most well built, but surprisingly the most reliable and fuel efficient cars I have ever owned, and the last 4 vehicles I owned outside of that car were an Infiniti G35, a Honda Accord, a Ford Fiesta, and a Chevy Silverado.

These are not the firearms you're looking for.

I don't need a full size pickup anymore. Even the Colorados and Rangers seem to be bigger than the last truck I had, a '95 extended cab Silverado. A smaller sized truck would cover all the bases for me -- especially if it really is the size of the old Rangers. Call me interested.

Yeah... if I felt like doing fiberglass & painting anymore, it'd be a hoot to take one of these "generic" cars and put some classic Cadillac/Chrysler style fins on it. :D

Then paint it candy apple red with a cream-white top... :drunk2:

As a Tacoma manual Transmission owner with a bunch of miles on it I went looking and I don’t think they offer new ones with a manual anymore at lesser when I tried build your own I couldn’t find it as an option so I guess I’ll shoot for 500000 miles
