I’m assuming this guy was in his 70’s, well into his 70’s. He was rather feeble.
He was driving a new Mercedes Gullwing, a stunningly gorgeous car
He was so feeble, that getting into and out of the car was sadly comical.
The cool, funky door opened to the sky.
He took his read end, braced it against the headrest… Continue reading

If your car gets 25mpg (Most cars in the US don’t. The US average is 22mpg.)…
If you are paying $4.00 for a gallon of gas (Most people don’t. We were shocked to see how “inexpensive” gasoline is in GA! We just barely dipped below $4.00 per gallon.)…

For the past month I’ve been driven insane by a mysterious rattle sound in the back of Monica, the Lexus RX 450h. I had no idea what started it, why it was rattling, exactly where the rattle was, or how to stop it. It only made the rattling noise when I hit a sharp bump in the road.

Well, a good friend purchased a 4 door Porsche Panamera for his family. They picked us up as we headed off to Flemings Steakhouse for dinner a couple weeks back. Very nice car.
Today, in the grocery store parking lot I saw my first Telsa. It looks great. Of course, being all electric, it makes no sound at all. Maybe… Continue reading
