|I see a surprisingly/frighteningly large number of novelty cars and trucks on the road. Vehicles like the Dodge Rumble Bee and the Dale Earnhardt Signature Monte Carlo are really quite laughable. What kind of person spends $35,000 for a bright yellow pickup truck with a bumble bee logo on the side? What's the point of having a "sport" truck? Can you race it against sports cars? Does it handle like a Porsche? Apparently, it's some sort of throwback to an old muscle car. Maybe it's because I'm not a car person, but the whole idea sounds and looks amazingly stupid.
And what's the deal with all those $25,000 Dale Earnhardt "racing" cars? Why do only 40-year-old women drive them? Isn't it kind of weird to purchase a huge object that's endorsed by someone, let alone a NASCAR driver? It was enough when you got the shirt that matched the hat, but a matching car? I've seen enough. #travel
