    :eek:they build Ridgelines, Benz suv's, hyundais, and some other cars within a hours drive of where I live. So sometimes I will see a odd car with tape on it driving around being tested.
    I was confused on the front end of a funny looking trcuk taped off that passed me. I drove to catch up with it and saw the honda badge on center of the tailgate. I knew it was the new ridgeline then. But man, the front of the 09 looks alot like a Toyota Truck now. I tried to take a camera phone pic but it was shifty. I found a pic online but it doesnt do it justice on how much it looks like a yota. Im not sure if thats the production one I saw or if the tape just showing the headlights made it appear more like a toyota than I thought. I guess well find out.

    Did you look on the rear bumper to see if there was a rainbow sticker on it? That'd be a dead giveaway.

    Probably...

    Ford finally did away w/ the Mark LT for a mere 40k starting. But now they have the platinum f150. It's only 45k. :eek:

    Yeah, that's definitely a Honda and that sexy front grille like they have on the 2009 Pilot.

    That is one POS looking vehicle. And don't these automakers/designers search the web to get feedback on designs?????

    I cannot believe someone would actually buy that.
