    Parkways are typically built along areas of nice scenery.. They usually have places to stop and 'park' so that you can admire the scenery.

    A driveway connects your house to the road.. So that you can 'drive' to the main road, thus its called a 'driveway.'

    Pretty simple really...

    I'm shocked they made it that far. I thought there would of been a winch involved.

    Pretty sure I could do all of that in a corolla.. Actually, I have.. :)

    Good thing about it, when I got stuck a guy that was with me simply pushed it out.. :D

    Today was an interesting day. So I was driving in a whiteout and on the highway there was about 3" of snow. All the FWD cars were stuck. People don't know how to drive, they were turning against the skid. I saw a person pushing their Prius out of a rut. All I could do is grin for being in a Jeep.

    2009? If so you couldn't be more right. That thing's a huge POS. Doesn't feel like a Toyota. It feels like a friggin Kia, that and the new Camry. I dunno what happened to them...

    To be honest with ya, I've NEVER sat, or driven a Toyota in all my years of driving (which is a few years). I've driven 1 Honda. Never will to that again.

    I work valet. I have no choice. If I had a choice I'd never drive one either.

    Yea, I wouldnt be caught in the new ones either.. Ours is ok, its a great car to run around in when you dont want to worry about other people hitting your doors, its raining, etc. Plus the road we live on is small and its easier to get in and our of the hollow. Most people freak when they need to drive on a road like ours(its small)....

    I just had two of the most screwed up dreams of my entire life.

    But you know what?

    They both made way too much sense.

    I think it's God's way of telling me something.

    I gotta get away from my current path.

    It's not getting me anywhere.

    I'm convinced I'm going to find a way to import this for my next car. So awesome....
    Oh, and the video says concept, but it's not.

    Poor build quality. Typical Fiat product. Rust.
    Just an over glorified Fiat (Fix. It. Again. Tony.)
    Check out Top Gear on BBC. They test everything from around the world and don't sugar coat anything either.
    I'll take a German car or French hatchback. At least I know it will be reliable.

    Yeah, I'm a huge fan of Top Gear. TiVo has that as top priority. I've heard about the notorious Italian build quality, but something about that car makes it seem worth it lol. I have no idea what the French have to offer though. Watching Top Gear and checking out the foreign cars makes me wonder why there are so many stellar small cars in Europe that are not available here.
