Whenever fuel prices soar, there’s two vehicles that one starts to see in greater abundance: Geo Metros and Diesel VWs. I spotted this VW pickup just down the street, where they’re building an addition. And yes, the other pickup isn’t exactly giant either.
By the way, did you know that dealer inventories of big pickups have almost doubled in the past month or two? Will big incentives be back too? And fuel efficient vehicle inventory is very tight, not surprisingly?
Update: From that autonews.com article I linked to above, about pickup inventories:
I assumed this was a diesel, as I haven’t seen a gas engine survivor of one of these in an eternity. But diesels, yes. All 54 hp of them.
This one’s not being called on to haul much more than its driver. All that wasted space…

What goes around, comes around; including 40 mpg pickups.
