All winter long we drive our winter rat truck. Its not a bad little truck. I kind of like it because its a standard not just a click it in gear automatic. A 1998 Izusu Amigo has a v-6 motor with lots of power to get you through the snow. But on the other hand I love the looks we get when I drive the Vehi-Cross. The Vehi-Cross was a concept truck designed by Izusu for only 3 years 1999-2001 only around 4000 made it to the U.S.A. I'm glad we bought it. A lot of times people come up thinking its right off the show room floor wondering what it is. Very cool truck.
