All of this gas/diesel truck talk when everything is going electric.
It's just a matter of time until there's a country song where the guy's truck leaves him.

Yep.
When you play a country/western record backwards he gets his truck back, he gets his dog back, his wife back, his girlfriend back, and his job back.

My favourite title for a country song, about a car, if I remember right, had the song title of..." You picked a fine time to leave me, loose wheel. "

Think Kenny Rogers sang it .

No, he sang "You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me Lucile; the song that Loose Wheel was a parody of.
You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me Loose Wheel was sung by the Balgaard Brothers.

'Loose Wheel' by The Balgaard Brothers - YouTube
For some reason, I always seem to get the Balgaard Brothers and Kenny Rogers confused .

I have a friend who is a retired mining engineer who will happily point out the biggest cargo movers in the world have been electric for a long time. And before that, they were steam.

Duluth, Minnesota July 21, 2019 (Big Boy was on the adjacent track - have some great photos, but no way no how was I getting the entire engine plus water cars in one image - besides it was stationary at the time)

Hum hum a hum hum a hum hum, hum a hum hum hum a-hum.

I recall back when my kids were in their teen years. I was always clicking away, taking pictures of them. It got so bad I guess, particularly for my daughter, that she started to call me...'Papa...razzi...'
