Parked opposite my house is a BIG 4x4. Not only is it blocking the pavement as it's parked half on the pavement, half on the road... it's blocking light as well.
Why on earth would you want one in this town?....
Safety? Nope, they are no safer to passengers that good quality saloon cars. In fact, they cause more deaths to pedestrians than cars.
Fun? Nope, it's never been off road!!!!
Status? Nope, they are not green and everyone knows you got into debt to buy it.
It's a penis extension - that's the only answer. Get a life saddo. If you see a 4x4, you may wish to stick the picture below to it.
