    Welp, guess that qualifies them for the participation award. When do they gut that division and sell its assets?

    Too bad GM hasn't been selling a BEV long enough to give it a redesign.

    The problem I see with the Tesla Cyber truck is that it's ugly as sin. There's no way that design is actually going to be driving down the road. It needs a few tweeks.

    I agree with that and some of the funniest things I've seen were Hummers with a bunch of junk sticking out the back. Even saw one jackweed (a few years ago) trying to jam a salvage yard engine into the back of his hummer.

    Several years ago, I had gone to Home Depot and got a few sticks of PVC conduit. At the first traffic light, I stopped beside a full sized Hummer that was also carrying some PVC conduit. ... On a trailer!! My conduit was inside my Camry. :rolleyes:

    I've carried long things inside my car, and even managed to break the windshield while doing so.

    Shouldn't be a problem with the Hummer EV; it's a pick up.

    Jay Leno referred to cybertruck's looks as 'badass' .... meah ... so, the score, referencing the totally meaningless subjective looks contest thing appears is a tie now.

    The Cybertruck's body design does put limits on flexibility that standard pick ups can have from accessories. That was likely a consideration Honda had when deciding against the sloped bed rails for the new Ridgeline.
