A year-old post HUMMER to WANKER, originally a silly little piece of wordplay, has triggered a fascinating stream of comments today.
Does a suburban family of four — two adults and two children — really need a big vehicle like a Hummer to get around? I recall that as a kid we didn’t. A normal-sized Holden station wagon, which would even be considered small by today’s standards, did just fine for two adults and two kids and the everyday business of running a farm
Even with a farm, we didn’t need 4WD for the car. That’s what we had a tractor for.
If you want to have your two cents’ worth, do feel free to comment over at the original post.
