SUVs


No view of Detroit would be complete without motor vehicles, since Detroit is the center and hub of automobile manufacturing. People here are rabid about cars, the bigger the better. Most parking lots are full of gigantic SUVs. Most (many) people here have NO CONCERN about the environment, pollution or the rampant use of rapidly depleting resources, I'm sorry to say. This is one of the things that makes me sad about living here. This picture was taken at one of the many car dealerships that line Mack in Detroit. (Now I'll probably have a burning cross in front of my house for dissing big Detroit -made cars. I appreciate the car industry, I do--Biker Buddy works at GM. I just wish they'd make a larger percentage of smaller, more energy efficient cars and that Detroit people and everyone else would drive smaller cars.)[In Europe, when I was there, almost 99% of the cars were small and tiny.]

PS: don't forget I'll be away and incommunicado all next week.

Ah, my old stomping ground. I was born and raised in the Detroit area, and now I live in a state where those jeep products are best used. I shall have to keep up on this blog.
