And modern pickups no longer have a real bench seat. I liked the bench seat in my first pickup because my dogs could stretch out comfortably on them. Modern pickup seats don't cut it. They suck.
Rand can win in 2016 only after the security guards will listen to us rather than the establishment hacks and only after we are able to ensure that the rules are followed and the votes accurately tallied.

Plus - one time, in Florida, I was driving my '74 VW bus, which went from 0 - 60 in about 5 minutes. There was no jack-rabbit starting to that thing, so it took a little bigger-than-most-people-need traffic gap to cross intersections.
