And they had one of their new "Ridgeline " pickups on the lot. Hideous doesn't even begin to describe it.

I thought that the Avalanche/Escalade EXT looked like trash when they came out... but this piece of junk...

Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, over.

Tell me I'm not the only one that thinks this way.

From Honda's website:







Definitely weird-looking. An SUV El Camino? Tailgate opens normally or to the side, apparantly.

I wish GM would bring the El Camino back. Yuppiefied little sports car/truck might sell now.

What would be really sweet is if GM would bring the Holden Ute to the States. It is basically a GTO pickup.

Finally a truck for lemming-like Honda fans. Too bad the market research was off. Way off.

I thought the Saturn SUV was an abomination but when Honda started making their own SUV instead of rebadging an Isuzu, it was sure to happen. But a Honda full-sized truck?

Ok, the Porsche Cayenne...makes Mr. Garrison's sex change seem mild.

Whats worse about the VUE is my mom was actually the one that was gonna get it and she wanted it in this ugly puke-orange color.

Got a nice Chevy Blazer instead.

For years I've been telling people that when Honda made a truck, they would dominate the market.

I was wrong.

Shoot the designer.

Note to Japan:

The weird design of the bed has a function. It is a unibody truck, and the high sides were needed to strengthen the body in that area. It will be interesting to see how this honda is recieved by the truck market.

I remember when people laughed a Toyota/Honda/Datsun making anything but econoboxes...

and then they laughed when Toyota made compact pickups...

and then they laughed when Toyota made full size pickups...

so I'll hold off on the laughter for a few more years....

Give them a few years, and I guarantee you they will. Just like in PWC, ATV, Motorcycle, Bicycle, and many other industries. When Honda enters, they do it to capture the largest market share possible. Wait and see.

Don't hold off laughing. At least Toyota makes functional trucks that people actually buy that don't look like a lump of crap.

I'm a ricegrinder driver, and have owned many a Honda, and will own another one.

Some of the very best cars made, period.

Thatsaid, That thing looks like an ISUZU Rodeo and a Chevy Avalanche had a bastard child.

A really FUGGGGGGG-LLEEE bastard child.

The Nissan V-6 utilized in the Maxima is the best V6 made, period.

And the fuckers will flat out fly, too.

It's really no worse than any other small 4 door pickup that anybody else markets. In fact, it's probably way better as it's a unibody, an nobody really uses the carrying capacity/off road ability of frame/solid axle competitors anyhoo.

Well, in a way, the SSR is kind of like El C. Except they pimped it up with that folding top and priced it at 49 G's.

That's nothing new. In the 60's various station wagons did that. You can order a GMC Envoy XUV with that a tailgate that did that.
