When you pull up next to a riceburner with the window open and the boom box blaring, punch 80 econ on your DP Tuner and rap up that 7.3L PSD and four inch pipe next to his window and all of a sudden all you can hear is "cough,cough" ..
Or,when you hear the cute little soccer mom in the suburban next to you say,"dear,his is bigger than yours."
Actually,I like Suburbans,but the my "EX" has a bit more endurance,uses less fuel per mile and more interior room..

When you go on a trek across NC to visit family at way too many locations - 4 people + luggage + christmas gifts + big cooler and you still have room when you stop at the hardware store to buy that hydraulic press. Even the guy at the store just kinda stared....

You know you drive an Excursion when the truck you are pulling out of the snow has a Peterbuilt emblem on the hood, a 525 Cummins under the hood, a 13 speed, and the driver says "Wow! I didn't think you would be able to get me out. Thanks!"
I assume there is a true story behind this ? Please tell. I have actually seen this done with super-duty tow trucks in the NC mountains during snow storms. I don't know how they did it, but they did.
