Claremore Driveway: Ram Longhorn Crew Cab Hemi

longhornI AM NOT A TRUCK GUY.  At least I wasn’t, till this rascal came around the building. I like my big, comfy, heated leather seats and heated steering wheel. Well, she’s got it. I like my sunroof and rear video. Got that too. And something no other truck has: The Ram box, (or boxes I should say). Can be configured to stow and lock up tools, guns, fishing tackle, and even has a drain in the bottom (please drink responsibly).

Car and Driver said this was the quietest truck it had ever tested. Then they got to checking, and found it was the quietest vehicle of any kind they had tested. This means a Dodge truck is quieter than virtually every luxury car on the road. The seats and dash have laser-cut filigree to set it apart.

At $60k new, these are a little bit rich for my blood. But one like this, a couple of years old, for about half that price makes me look pretty hard.

My name is Robby Melton. I’m old enough to qualify for a “senior coke” at McDonalds and don’t have to work anymore, but find myself here on the lot most days because that’s where the cars are. That advertising slogan,  “We sell cars for fun,” is not far off-base for my brother and me.
