Remember the first car you ever drove? Mine was a 1970-something 10-seater Chevy Suburban affectionately called, the Moose Mobile. It was a beast of a vehicle my family got to pull our travel trailer. It had homemade curtains in the back windows to match the trailer and I think it got about 12 miles per gallon. The Moose Mobile was the family car when I took driver's ed and my mom took me to the local cemetery, (where I couldn't hurt anyone), and put me in the driver's seat. Once I got my license, I could take all my friends in one car to football games, choir rehearsals and the movies. My parents even let me paint it for graduation and my artist friend painted a huge moose on the hood.
Long before I actually drove, I remember other family cars-a white VW Bug, a green LTD we drove across the country to California and a yellow Pinto my dad drove to work. The other car we had when I learned to drive was a red Chevette, a manual transmission car I never drove but referred to it by singing, "little red Chevette, clap, clap" to the tune of Prince's 1983 hit about a much racier car, the Corvette.
Think of all the songs about cars-Pink Cadillac, Little Deuce Coupe, GTO, Mustang Sally, Mercedes Benz, Lowrider, '92 Subaru. I'm sure there are songs about pickup trucks too-I just don't listen to country so I can't come up with one.

About two million acres are grown each year, and the commodity adds approximately $1 billion to the state's economy.
