Nothing Like a New Pickup When You Need That Crap Economy Pick-Me-Up

The auto show's been a fixture at the Fair since 1904. That's a fun fact. Free for having. You can look it up.

Just made my first-ever pit stop at, thanks to the just-posted video available for watching with your eyes after the jump. It's a review of the some 135,000 square feet of pickups that went on display today at the great State Fair of Texas, where, when I was a kid, the only reason we ever went was so Dad could spend four hours slow-walking through the auto show. Least we can now get that out of the way. --Robert Wilonsky
