Well, the answer is easy.
Get some of those big honkin' 'Murican truck springs, and raise the
car up, say, 36". Then, buy some of those neat-o off-road tires in
a really cool size like 305-85-16 and slap them on. Even better if
they are raised-letter whitewalls. Dont forget to attach at least
4 driving lights to the sunroof wind deflector.
See? Wasn't that easy? :-)
BTW, in case you think I'm completely joking about this, I saw an
American Eagle 4WD sedan that was outfitted just like this....
Honestly, every once in a while I think about SUV's. My brother drives
a Cherokee (so he can fish out on the beaches), and a friend has a
Cherokee and a Dodge Dakota. They both like my Audi, though. But,
after driving their cars, I just can't do it.
