2009 Dodge Ram 1500: Yeah, I'm Dead!

December 29, 2009

The Ram seems even more portly when driving around densely populated areas. I'm especially nervous when driving in parking lots/garages.

Here in Santa Monica, they have large parking garages for the shoppers. I was pulling out of one garage to the street, but it's the kind of garage where you can't see the pedestrians on the sidewalks. I approached with great caution, looking into the convex mirrors for signs of people outside.

Just as I got my nose out onto the sidewalk a group of young guys walks right out in front of me. I nearly crush one guy and his saucer wide eyes reflect his similarly felt sentiments. He looks up at me, I can read his lips as he says: "Nice truck, dude." He gives me an enthusiastic thumbs up, then walks off down the street.

I wish I could be so enthusiastic after a near death experience.
