    You'll see more pickups in my neck of the woods/beaches, one of which is mine.

    I have owned more cars than trucks, but I'm a truck guy at heart. By far the most expensive and largest truck was a Kenworth hauler conversion, my first was a 1951 Ford F100 with a flat head V8. My favorite...well I haven't found it yet. But, I'll keep looking!!

    Both. I live out in the country and can't get by without a truck. The problem is that I buy one and run it until the wheels fall off. The present one is a 1999 F350 dually with the 7.3 Powerstroke. It only has 80K miles on it so it's not going anywhere soon. My other vehicle is a small SUV crossover. It is much easier to drive and park. I bought it to tow behind the RV. I'll probably keep it forever too.

    Although I did own a 78 Toyota truck for a few years, I've always been more of a Van guy.
    The first van I owned was a 68 VW back in high school. Later I bought a 81 Ford Econoline, then an 85 Econoline Clubwagon (Great van).
    When I moved up to the snowy mountains of Utah, I bought a 93 Chevy Astro mini-van. That was a good van! I could take all the back seats out (with some effort), and lay a 4 X 8 foot sheet of plywood flat in the back; and the AWD was fantastic in the snow.
    During all those years my wife drove various cars, usually Toyota's or Subaru's. Her last was a Toyota Rav-4 with a V-6 engine, really fast! That Rav-4 was a great car, but couldn't hold all our stuff when we traveled long distance.
    We don't live in the snow anymore, so two years ago we bought a front wheel drive Chrysler Pacifica mini-van.
    Now I can easily fold both rows of back seats down into the floor and lay a 4 X 8 foot sheet of plywood flat in the back. It seats 7 comfortably (even my 6' 5" son-in-law sits comfortably in the back row). The 2 side doors and the back tailgate open automatically, which my wife insisted on. Comes with a V-6, and it rides like a Cadillac.
    So far I'm likin' this van big time!

    All my activities require a truck. The last car I owned was a Pinto in '74, and I don't consider that a car. Also, having ZERO depth perception, the added height of a truck is necessary for my driving needs.

    Been a Car Guy with a Truck Habit since I was 14. Bought a '64 Falcon to get around and needed a truck to haul trash and such so I bought a '52 Chevy pickup. I have had a car/SUV and a truck ever since... My current pair are a '04 GTO and '99 F150.. Love them both...

    My first car was a 59 Chrysler Imperial. push button tranny, truly a lazy boy on wheels, but those soft plugs blowing out were a pain. Then moved on to a 65 Galaxy 500 great for trips I was taking at the time. But from then on always had a full size van or Truck. My first truck was a 65 F250 with a granny gear. Wow what a workhorse. But now as I have gotten older, the Tundra's are my choice. Luckily I can afford the Gas, at 17MPG it is not an efficient option. However it has a smooth powerful drive train, fits me perfectly. A truck is a must out here in the country. Wife and I each have the same model, hers is a 2012 - mine is a 2016.

    Pretty much trucks for me anymore, and generally half ton short bed regular cabs. Don't need an extended cab or crew cab.
    But, I'll always have a soft spot for certain classic cars that I think are worth the price.
