Everyone needs one.
There are two kinds of people, those who own pickups, and those who borrow them.

That's hot rod slang from back in the '60s. As in: "This little modified Pon-Pon has got plenty of style".

My 18 F350 XL was twice the cost of the 14 Escape S. It has better creature comforts, seats are better, just as roomy and will haul 30,000# (although it normally only hauls 15,000#). The downside is it gets half the mpg.

Never heard that one. I have heard "poncho". Kind of like 'stang. As in being not a phrase I'd ever use myself.

Friggin really? I don't see how anyone can live day to day without one. I use mine nearly day.
