Having a sleek looking car or truck is a status symbol in most countries – especially third world countries.
Even celebrities are “conscious” of how good their cars look; so much so that we oftentimes watch on TV – celebrities becoming advertising agents.
As for me, the closest thing I had as a vehicle was a run-down old jalopy truck.
I would like to visit once more Taloctoc, the far flung village in the hinterlands of Kalinga, where I had spent my childhood days, and I would need to use something that could accomodate the whole family and be road worthy; I need a sturdier, durable and more ergonomically designed transportation.
I had always dreamed of a dodge 1500. It fulfills all the criteria I mentioned above and more.
The ride from the city proper through the treacherous mountain- roads of Kalinga would be around 12 hours, which would definitely be a road torture for any vehicle. But these vehicles including the toyota camry review would endure any rough road and still be coming out whole. I’ve seen lesser cars give in to the arduous ascents and descents through these long and winding roads.
When I go back to the place where I have spent my happy childhood days, I would like to do it in style- in my dodge 1500!
