Maybe if today's SUVs felt like trucks, I would not have seen a black Chevy Suburban with blacked-out windows hurtling down I-95 at close to 90 mph. I was doing 75, and he blew by me like I was standing still. To make it worse, he was pulling a sailboat with a full keel, the deck of which had to be 12 feet above the pavement. The drive was probably oblivious to all this, in his air-conditioned Dolby-stereo leather-interior. I hate to think what would have happened if he'd had to maneuver suddenly.
I liked our old 4-cyl IH Scout; it would go anywhere, got decent milage, and if you went over 50 mph it made enough of a racket to keep you alert.
