Well, at least it's a name that's going to be easy to forget....

I was surprised when Nissan came out with the Rouge ..... in '65 I had a Rambler Rouge. It was an American with a different roofline, bucket seats and a 2 barrel carb thrown in for extra measure.

The only way a Tesla or any EV truck is going to tow that thing is if it has it's own drive train.

Should have got one Brent! DW's brother had one. Horsing around with him one day, he was in his Nash and I was on a Cushman Super Eagle motor scooter. He just locked that Nash down and I was right behind him. That thing was built like a tank (and look so cool too!) and didn't even know I hit it. The Cushman on the other hand received a bent fender and bent front wheel - and it was built pretty stout too. Didn't call anybody, swap insurance or anything else...just laughed and went on about it. Ah, those were the days....

Sort of reminds me of something I say on an "I Love Lucy" episode many years ago!
