A Lincoln Blackwood. The truck with the exterior of the bed clad in plastic replica wood, replicating wenge (WEN-gay), which is ironically one if the most plastic-y looking woods.
Fittingly spotted in the parking lot of the local Bed, Bath & Bayond in the throes of being shut down.

"Oh, so you play to buy a pickup truck and a luxury car? Well, get this reduced-utility (carpeted bed? C'mon...) luxury single vehicle instead...because that's surely the only reason why anyone would want two vehicles!"The weirdest vehicle. It’s not a throwback, it’s just a „we have a ton of money and know you suckers buy anything we make.“
The post office is so often a little time capsule of the not-too-distant past. There was a VehiCROSS a few weeks ago, but didn't get a photo.
This week: IMO, one of the goofiest-looking American coupes ever, the final-gen (6th) Monte Carlo.
Depending on which gearing and which V8 that big tank will still get it like 300km at best?I saw lots of Land Rovers today, I won't bore you with most of them. This Series I was particularly interesting though, it had a V8 and this Massey Ferguson fuel tank. What's this, about 60-70 litres? 14 UK gallons maybe.
Rebadged truck from another brand: check, slightly modified nose to more or less match the brand: check, trying to make a utilitarian vehicle luxurious by only adding some superficial schmuck: check it seems, getting discontinued after just a couple years: check.The Mercedes X Class heard you calling.
TIL they weren't even RWD.these GM FWD turds with old names.... they're the epitome of General Motors. Used to make such sought after cars, now they, like their owners, are clinging onto the "gold old days."
TIL they weren't even RWD.
They came out before the time I was actually paying much attention to cars, and never realized they weren't RWD. Looking at it now, it's obvious, but back then I just hated the shape and the weird blobby lights.
