If I told all of that -for each and every one of them - there would be no one who was not angry at me for using that much server space.

But currently I have come full circle, it seems. Back to small and fuel efficient. But in all of it - I realised I never want to be "TRUCKLESS". I have to be able to haul when I want to, it's written into me. At the same time, I want fuel efficiency!

But I am the son of an engineer. I know very well that fuel is used in direct proportion to what is moved with it.

Thus for a daily driver I hunted down and got a Ranger truck. DELIBERATELY AND WITH AN IDEAL IN MIND! Four cylinders, five speed, but still a truck.

For a very fast hotrod-like machine - STILL a Ranger truck! Because I have the ability to stuff a massive engine into one. And the power to weight ratio is nine-tenths of the speed equation... Besides: They have FRAMES
