Pepsi Ripoff Project

Wow, things I miss by not watching much network TV. This showed up during "Lost" on ABC last night. Pepsi's agency has got some splainin' to do:

Sunday! Sunday! Sundaaay!!

Lucy and I headed on up to Sears Point (or Infineon. Monster. AT&T. Whatever.) Raceway for a darned fine morning at the Audi Driving Experience event. Tremendous amounts of fun all for free, and we were back in time to pick up the kid at school, wearing big grins.

The race instructors had us hustling the big A8 around like Ronin...

... and took us out for couple of laps behind the wheels of a new S5. Woo-hoo!

Lucy started to film my track laps, but stopped when she got nauseous. Clearly, the Audi Driving Experience is not so good as a passenger.

Call now and ask for a no-cost refi!

A little-reported phenomenon amidst the subprime breakdown... kids memorizing the TV commercial pitch! Maybe another good signal for calling the market top.

Elvis has left the building

The car has been sold, and this was the scene about an hour ago:
These moments are always a little bittersweet, but
the girl
*completely* overshot that and went DEFCON 1 when I told her the car was going away.

And here I quote: "I want the Porsche forever and ever!!! (Banshee wail) (Kicks legs)"

For Sale: Ultimate Family Car

(Edited 5/31: Here's the Craigslist ad)

For once, I'm selling a car instead of buying one. Contact me if interested.

For sale: 2002 Porsche Carrera 4 Convertible in Seal Gray. 2+2 seating, 4 wheel drive. Strap a child seat in the back, like we have it set up, and the whole family can rocket down to Music Together at 177 mph. In the rain. With the top down.

46K miles, no mechanical problems whatsoever (factory warranty to 45K miles), with all service records through the 2 previous owners. Extended warranty through 75K miles. 6-speed manual. Goodies include nav, parking sensor, 18" "turbo twist" wheels and remote convertible top operation -- this last feature will convince your kids that you bought a Transformer.

Air bags everywhere, EPA rated 24 MPG highway. Have the matching hardtop in storage.

KBB Private Party pricing pegs it at $52K in "good" condition. Yours for thousands below that!
