2. I remember that came out when gas prices took a big drop
in 1986, and went below a gallon for the first in quite a few years. And millions of assholes just assumed that it would always remain that cheap, and so started buying the giant behemoths and saying "fuck you" to good mileage.

They really got fucked, and quickly, too!

It was funny.
