    My first time seeing one was in a Jennifer Love Hewitt movie (also very hot, also another story :)), then I moved and there was one near the entrance to my apt complex. Kinda strange looking in person :)

    NOT an SUV.

    A very strange car, probably works best in places like Hawaii.

    Ducks were military transports built by GM during the second world war. They were six wheel drive and could move over land and through water, even the ocean.

    Wisconsin Dells WI has been buying up those things for years to take people around the rivers and stuff.

    The Pontiac Aztek is sort of the Things successor... :rofl:
