I was driving in my neighborhood today, and found myself stopped behind a Subaru. In the next lane over, beside the Subaru, was an El Camino, a nice looking example from around the mid 70’s I think. The most famous El Camino owner was Bill Clinton, who famously had the bed lined with Astroturf, to protect his luggage of course.
This sight pretty well sums up the divide in America. All racial conflict aside, America consists mainly of white people who drive Subarus trying to control the behavior of white people who drive El Caminos. Subaru drivers are lawyers, teachers, social workers, and other such professions that shape society through persuasion, and when necessary bring the recalcitrant to heel. El Camino drivers do stuff and make stuff, but aren’t always aware what they are supposed to be doing and how they are supposed to be conducting their lives, at least according to the Subaru drivers, who are there to instruct them, guide them, and gently or firmly correct them if necessary.
Subaru drivers originate in culture at least, and usually ethnically and geographically from the Puritan/Quaker culture of the Northeast. El Camino drivers originate culturally, and usually ethnically and geographically, from the South, Midwest and West.
People are what they drive.
