For those of you who aren't familiar with the truck, it's the Lincoln Mark LT. I'll be the first to admit I know nothing about cars, let alone trucks, but at first glance I think the truck is gorgeous. It's classy, tight, and just a good looking truck. Then something hit me. Who the heck would buy this nice of a truck when they need a vehicle to do truck things. Now I'm sure most individuals who buy a truck aren't thinking of, "where can I get some cinder blocks to haul?" the moment they purchase a truck. Or that they're just dying to scratch up their new truck to initiate it. I know knicks, scratches, etc. come with time and in the end makes a truck a beater. At the same time my personal feeling are a truck's a truck. There's a reason for it. If you have a truck like the Lincoln Mark LT, who would want to use it in the way you should use a truck, with the chance of marking it up? Not only do I feel this way, but I'm sure those guys driving around in the things have no plans on placing anything in the bed, other than groceries, if that. Just guessing. And at $39,000-$43,000 why would you you want to beat it up? At the same time why would you buy a truck for that kind of money, that runs at 12 MPG, just to drive around and look "cool"?
I'm not just targeting the Lincoln truck, but all of the trucks out there that fit into the same category. They're awesome looking, but I just don't get it.
