Hmmm, a not so aptly named Ford Escape.

Something about that picture reminded me of the 'Meaning of Life':

"And finally, monsieur, a wafer-thin mint. Oh, sir, it's only a tiny, little, thin one. Just one."




And while I'm here,

"Badger, badger, badger, badger
Mushroom!
Badger, badger, badger, badger
Badger, badger, badger, badger
Snay-ake, SNAKE!"

It was enough of an ASSAULT SUV to try to dig its way out so it could rampage through the local schoolyard all on its own!

Given how badly this SUV has now been angered, they better just put it down... Just safer that way. It won't feel a thing.

The Earth rebelling over selfish, resource wasting SUV's.

My take was it was going back to hell from whence it came. ;-)

No, the gas-guzzling evil polluting SUV was trying to drill for its own oil.

Probably sabotaged by Green Peace.

My Jeep has something to say to you.

Was it a cistern or a septic tank?

It could have been worse. She could have been driving an M1A1 instead.

Under the station wagon looking body is a Jeep J10 truck. People swap the bodies around all the time.

Since when have you seen a station wagon do this?

The Escape is a toy. Most SUVs are station wagons with tall bodies. My Jeep is not. :) Station wagons don't run Ouray or the Rubicon and survive. :)

Don't have to, they make them about 10 miles from here - see them all the time.

I don't have a need for one of them, but i sure would like to have the money in my bank account to buy one of 'em.

I drive an old 1982 Chevrolet 1/2 ton 2 wheel drive with a new engine with less than 20K on it.

It suits me just fine. It was one owner and I bought it from the old guy for $1000.00. no dents, rust or scratches and he is the one that had the cheverolet dealer put the new mr. goodwrench engine in.

It was a heck of a deal and i couldn't be more pleased if it was brand new. Should easily last me another 10 years or more. I don't need "new", I need "dependable".

Wait just a danged minute there, I call my Tahoe a truck and I called my suburban a truck! I HATE the term SUV and I refuse to call them that. I have driven a "truck" for over 30 years. Just got a new one Tuesday, she is pretty! %;9)

Unless it was built with some advanced technology, the floor doesn't look like it would carry any weight at all. Perhaps it was not intended to be a garage floor.
