Whats up with this???

I just moved up to Huntsville Texas to attend college at Sam Houston State University.

After driving around for a while, i noticed that there are more Cummins than there are Powerstrokes and even Duramaxes. 75% of the drivers all look stuck up like "look at me, i drive a cummins"

Anyways, the ratio seems to be about,

For every 1 powerstroke, there is 5 cummins.

I feel out numbered

I know this is stupid, but felt like sharing a little info

You'll find alot more P-Strokes in College Station TX.

Here in Fort Bend County (SW of Houston) theres alot of money so you see plenty of newer PSDs.
But if you go south of me alot of the folks in the Boonies drive Dodges.

Here at Ashland Ohio all I have seen is Cummins. The only PSDs on campus have 50+ yr old guys driving. I have only seen 1 dmax and it was not a student.
