Guess that Element was too loud after all. And according to Matt's comments in his flickr photostream, even with its vaunted hose-out-ability, it's not as convenient as the Ridgeline for hauling dirt.
In any case, it's good when a marketing plan comes together and the Ridgeline hits its "cool dads" target demographic.
As for the other whip, I have to confess, if it ain't Mac, I don't know jack. Is that a Chicco Caddy?
