The Daily Ping

There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Paul Likes an SUV!

Stop the presses! It’s all true! There’s an SUV out there that I like – but sadly, not for its fuel economy or environmental status. This one? It just looks good. Really good.

It’s the Nissan Murano, whose name is something I’m not as keen on. But I’ve seen a couple on the road, and they are quite distinctive – low-slung and pretty aggressive. I even like the red interior.

The sad thing is that the fuel economy is the same as the PT Cruiser I currently drive, and the Murano is larger and heavier than the PT. (The PT gets mediocre mileage.) And, of course, the Murano is another SUV, and you know how that goes. It’s also a $30,000 car, so chances are quite high I’ll never get one.

But at least it looks like it was designed to have a shape, instead of the ol’ “tall box with acute angles” style.

If a Lexus SUV and the PT Cruiser had a baby, this would be it!

Pretty handsome for the new Vibe/Matrix class, but I'm *so* keeping my MINI!

BTW, the name's not bad. Better than some other locations I can think of. "Ooh, there goes that hot new...Berwyn!"

It's a station wagon!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
