Imagine this, you are driving down the highway and all of a sudden a truck spills red paint all over the road - which overcomes the road with red in color and also stains your car.
This was a reality on Interstate 495 in Littleton Massachusetts on Wednesday April 3, 2007.

When I look at the newly facelifted Subaru Tribeca , I think one thing: what the heck happened to this automobile? It debuted with a very noticeable front- that was unlike anything else that you had seen on the road... Now it looks darn right plain with its smoothed out nose and plain-Jane headlights. I understand that Subaru has done this to give all their Subaru cars a family-resemblance- but this new front is not a direction that I like. While they say this new front is to resemble (...)
When seeing photos of the new Ford Flex, I can not help but think about another Suv on the market within the Ford family: this Suv being the Range Rover Sport. Visually the Flex has a similar stance, profile and front to the Range Rover sport but its is squished down to give it the wagon look that Ford was looking for. Though the Flex has a resemblance to the Range - I still feel like it is a great looking automobile and will be a hot seller for Ford- call in it the Mini-Range. There is a (...)

Only question is will these cost twice the cost of tires because of their dual functionality? Im buying stock in this company when I get the chance.
