Crump: Essentials Of Idaho Chic

I was standing at the gas pump the other day when the guy in the next lane observed that I have two wheel covers on the left side of my Toyota and none on the right. “Did you jump that sidewalk a little too fast?” he wondered. The fellow went on to tell me that true Idahoans always wear hubcaps, but you and I know better. The four essential elements of an Idaho pickup truck — missing tailgate, Bondo on at least part of the surface, mud flaps and two to four dogs in the back — don’t lend themselves to a pimped-out ride. Slapping wheel covers on such a classically disreputable rig, in my opinion, is painting lipstick on a pig/Steve Crump, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.

Question: Does your car/pickup have all four hubcaps? Or are you an Idahoan?
