My question would be, who the freak cares what they drive up in New England? As far as I'm concerned, they're a bunch of liberal hippies that drive 15 year-old Subarus, or self-righteous academics that drive Pruises, if they even have a car at all!
I know, I know...there are plenty of good hard-working, truck-driving folks up in the Northeast, but I'd hardly call the region a trendsetter for the truck enthusiast scene.
