Now if they could do something about the mileage

Ford F-150

- What's this? Another car picture?

- It's a truck. A Ford F-150.

- Another gas-guzzling vehicle.

- But a beaut. You should see what Dan Neil says about it. It's powerful, smooth, beautifully engineered. . .

- Why would I want to read about a pickup?

- Because Neil writes some of the best copy -- whether or not you have any interest in the vehicle. Makes me laugh.

- You know your life fits in a Prius.

- True. But if I ever really need to haul stuff -- I mean real big stuff. . .

- You'll borrow an F-150?

- A person can dream.
