Greetings from sunny Florida! I was planning to take a week off from the interwebz, but couldn’t resist posting a couple photos.

The real 4800-pound, 2013 Explorer does quite well, earning an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 2013 and a 5-star overall rating from NHTSA. Would the 2500-pound LEGO version even hold up against an 1800-pound, Smart ForTwo?
And now a public service reminder for the upcoming holday driving season:
