With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Understandably it should be an easy explain but I would like to know the Judge's point. I'm out of the running, I pulled off onto the shoulder of the highway to take a pee and got dirt on my tires. Damn....I was that close to pulling it off.

Think polar opposite of an off-road truck.

IMO - X-Runners, Dodge Dakota R/T's, Silverado SS, basically anything that has been lowered compared to the base model of said vehicle.

there could be a totm category for each...

lowered or racing types... x-runner...etc

mall crawlers... 12" lift with way too much chrome and frills to ever take it off road

street trucks (for lack of a better term)... modified but doesn't fit into either of the above categories (missleman's truck for example)

street trucks are those sexy beasts that may be lowered and have intense performance mods like a super charger, but actually use it on the track for speed

Just because they have a S/C, it does not make them a street truck. Desert runners use S/Cs too.
