09/01/2005: It's All Subjective...
...After all --
As a matter of Car Preferences and “World Class Pug-Ugly.” Len has pointed out that (in his humble opinion) the Hummer H2:
Is a MUCH Uglier vehicle than the Mercedes Truck I decried yesterday as a most Hideous Monstrosity.
And, in all fairness, Len is probably correct that the gas mileage of the Hummer has got to be far worse than any other passenger vehicle.
But the Hummer at least began it’s design life as a useful vehicle for the military. It had a *practical purpose* for being SOOO dreadfully UGLY before it was co-opted into the mainstream vehicle car pool available for consumers to hog the highways with these beasts. (And I just bet they're Loving the cost to fill their gas tanks. Hahahaha. Bleh!!!)
Compare the Isuzu Trooper:
It’s almost the same or similar body style to the Mercedes (nothing is exactly like the Hummer H2)…But not quite. It avoids the total Boxy-shape with a slight curvature towards the roof area as well as the front end.
Tho’ I personally wouldn’t want to own even one of these vehicles --it’s just the Trooper is below the PUG-UGLY category of either the Mercedes or the Hummer H2. But subjectively an *opinion* after all.
