This was Andrew’s winter. It may not have ranked highly on the charts, but it was something that he adored and I often envied. It’s a difficult realization to make: I am often distracted by specifications and numbers, but cars (trucks!?) like this make the best daily’s even if they don’t impress with performance. It’s not like 300hp is at all useful on the way to work. So what Andrew got instead was something fun and small, offering great visibility, good fuel economy and 4WD of course.
Where it fell short ultimately, was in comfort and luxury. Panels of glass and steel and fiberglass don’t fit together well with eighties technology and a dozen quick releases and latches. The roof might have kept rain out, but it sure didn’t do much for the wind, and in the middle of winter, the heater was easily defeated. Shame, because in the middle of winter, it really was a riot.
