I know they're quite a boat-anchor, and not so favored when it comes to the aerodynamics, but how could I get to hate the Toyota Bandeirante?

Before someone eats me out on here I'll take myself in for confession. I took an already bad aero Commander and lifted it, out a roof basket and lights, and now because the tires are too big to go under and a rear carrier costs a fortune, the spare goes on the roof. Now 7'3" tall. It was really getting terrible milage before anyway and if there is a camper behind it who cares.

Just think of the propaganda on that truck as a mere fragment of what's rattling around in his brain. Flag drag is the least of his problems - in my opinion.
