Plump my ride

At the right is a Ford F-150. Introduced in 1975 and still being manufactured, it has been the most popular vehicle in the United States for more than 30 years. 20 million of them have been sold.

Below is a Honda Super Cub. Introduced in 1958 and still being manufactured, it is the most popular vehicle ever made. More than 60 million have been sold.

Most Americans have never seen a Super Cub, let alone ridden one.

I think it says something telling about the difference between the US and the rest of the world that you could carry 15 Super Cubs in the back of an F-150.
