The steadily disappearing American car

After a century of ferrying millions of daily commuters and taking countless
family road trips, simple passenger cars are disappearing from American
life, and they may not come back.

Detroit's Big Three automakers - Chrysler, Ford and General Motors -
pioneered the mass production of the car, but in just four years, all three
may be known to Americans simply as truck and SUV makers, with only a stray
sedan for sale.

The automotive industry in America is making what many observers think is an
irrevocable shift toward pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles and
crossovers. While carmakers are producing sedans and sports cars that are
safer, faster and more comfortable than ever, customers continue to flock to
taller vehicles with features cars simply cannot offer.

"Since 2009 or 2010 it has been a truck story," said Jeff Schuster, senior
vice president of forecasting at LMC Automotive, which tracks the auto
industry. The exception was a slight pullback in 2012, when the midsize car
segment underwent a major refresh, he said.

The trend shows no sign of abating, despite cries from car enthusiasts that
crossovers lack the driving dynamics of sedans and complaints from
environmentalists that SUVs and trucks are typically less fuel-efficient
than cars.

Whereas ours seem to be getting bigger, which is odd, because our roads,
driveways, and parking spaces seem to have been designed with the
expectation that cars would get smaller. Still, nothing boosts the ego
like a big catafalque.

Fuck knows.

Probably the car of choice for the dimwits who prefer to drive the wrong way
along a motorway at night while laughing like drains and filming themselves

That is until they kill people travelling in the correct manner (and

Since you mentioned castles, I think you do, although you may not
realise it. I think the attitude is 'when I have an accident, I'm going

None of those dwarf UK/EU cars for the Yanks....LOL
The all round visibility is generally shit in a SUV in comparison to a
normal car. It's like looking through those slits in castles we used to
fire arrows through. I don't get it.
Since you mentioned castles, I think you do, although you may not
realise it. I think the attitude is 'when I have an accident, I'm going
to make sure /they/ come off worst'. I.e. a big, hard, box.
Sure, they are perceived to be safer in an accident and they probably
are.

They are built more like brick shit houses than castles...

I'm always surprised by just how small they are on the inside vs the
outside, like an inverted Tardis.

Evidently, the Yanks don't drive MPV's which is what I have. Well we
have a nippy hatch but that's going as we never use it. Anyway, MPV's
forever. Their only downsides are they are boring, and they drive a bit
like a van but they do everything but pull the chicks...

The steadily disappearing American car
After a century of ferrying millions of daily commuters and taking countless
family road trips, simple passenger cars are disappearing from American
life, and they may not come back.
Detroit's Big Three automakers - Chrysler, Ford and General Motors -
pioneered the mass production of the car, but in just four years, all three
may be known to Americans simply as truck and SUV makers, with only a stray
sedan for sale.
The automotive industry in America is making what many observers think is an
irrevocable shift toward pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles and
crossovers. While carmakers are producing sedans and sports cars that are
safer, faster and more comfortable than ever, customers continue to flock to
taller vehicles with features cars simply cannot offer.
"Since 2009 or 2010 it has been a truck story," said Jeff Schuster, senior
vice president of forecasting at LMC Automotive, which tracks the auto
industry. The exception was a slight pullback in 2012, when the midsize car
segment underwent a major refresh, he said.
The trend shows no sign of abating, despite cries from car enthusiasts that
crossovers lack the driving dynamics of sedans and complaints from
environmentalists that SUVs and trucks are typically less fuel-efficient
than cars.

None of those dwarf UK/EU cars for the Yanks....LOL
The all round visibility is generally shit in a SUV in comparison to a
normal car. It's like looking through those slits
Ha ha Pooh. You "terrified" it with the word "slit". Bit
violent, even for you.
Unfortunately it'll lick it's wounds and be back with more
#FAKENEWS. Bouffants are quite thick-skinned.

That's not skin. He's surrounded by enough fat that he can easily
absorb a .44 round to the stomach. It'll fail to penetrate the
target. Even the shockwave is no match for his insulation!

A smaller round would stop in midair, shriek in agony and turn
around, begging you to insert it back into the firearm.
