It's cattle country, just like here in Alberta. My granddaughter bought her first truck at 15, and it sat in the driveway for 6 months till she became 16 and got her licence. Cattle country and oil country seems to add up to trucks
The only reason I owned a pickup whenI lived in TX was because I bought it when I lived in FL. I needed a pick up in FL so I could toss my beach chair and beach cruiser bike in the back. Then I could just hose all the sand away when I got home,
Texans need something to pull their house trailers with.
There's the old joke of the bartender in a small Texas bar who announces " Will the owner of the pick-up truck with a cracked windshield please go out and shut off your head lights ? "
