    This one's kinda cool. Little too much lift and offroad style for me and the grill is ugly but it all flows together nicely.

    The phrase was first recorded in the late 18th century, when it was used to mean 'something very small and insignificant'. Its current meaning dates from the 1920s, at which time a whole collection of American slang expressions were coined with the meaning 'an outstanding person or thing'. Examples included the flea's eyebrows, the canary's tusks, and one that still survives - the cat's whiskers. The switch in meaning for the bee's knees probably emerged because it was so similar in structure and pattern to these other phrases.

    Stolen from here.

    Yeah I'm not a big fan of chrome on a truck. Only the old trucks with real steel bumpers could pull it off.

    What's the stock look like to begin with? I recall reading something about how they actually lose a ton of money for each one they build and sell.

    edit, saw the numbers posted previously.

    I'm sure you need multiple MBA, CFA and other three-letter acronym accreditations to make that analysis. :rolleyes:

    It dropped down to like $112, but was back up to $118 at closing. The guy ran over something causing the fire.
