In New England, we love our cars.  It really is an individual choice which one we drive.  Some like big trucks to drive through anything a winter storm in the Berkshires can throw at you.  Others like to go fast and want something sporty.  Some like big luxury cars that give you the feeling that you're driving your couch through Pittsfield.  On the other side of the spectrum, many are concerned with the future and want something compact, energy-efficient, and maybe even with a plug instead of a gas tank.
