2012 Chevrolet Silverado HD

Chevrolet-Silverado-Interior4.jpgMy next vehicular choice is at the opposite end of the automotive spectrum. Everyone needs the services of a pickup from time to time; there’s no way I’m cramming a washing machine in the Ford GT or hauling a load of firewood in the S8. Thankfully the Chevrolet Silverado HD is a truck down to its fully boxed, ladder-frame bones. For heavy-duty towing and hauling the GM T900 can’t be beat.

It may not be the prettiest or most fuel-efficient vehicle on the road but it’s a workhorse par excellence. When equipped with the optional 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine the Silverado HD has enough axle-twisting torque to rip giant sequoias out by their roots and stop the earth’s rotation. These are reasons enough to keep one around, plus, of course, they have room for a new Whirlpool.

    What?!? No mention of the Dymaxion? Seriously? Bucky must be rolling over in his elegantly designed casket. The only redeeming item on this list is the Citroen DS. Now THAT’S a car!

  • “…you can go read Nancy Drew.”  That, sir, is some fine, funny writing right there.

  • Hope to hear more about that 1936 Ford.  I like the styling, Ford’s transition into Streamline Moderne style.

    Such a wonderful selection! It’s so personal and you had to have thought: “what’s that random communist car I like? oh yeah!”. I wish that you had done a video or narrated this, I Love how you speak in your videos.
