America Supports You

This is posted on the day before Memorial Day. I could not blog this, or do what I do, if it weren't for the sacrifice of soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coasties who died to protect our way of life. They are responsible for our freedoms (all of them) enumerated in the Bill of Rights. I hope you will take a few minutes to reflect on the sacrifice of our fallen heroes, and go to and thank our heroes who are serving today.

Texas wants a revival of the Al Unser, Jr.--Michael Andretti duels of the CART days.

Texas Motor Speedway Boss Eddie Gossage threw $100 grand on the table if both Michael Andretti and Al Unser, Jr. race in TMS's Bombardier Learjet 500k Indy Racing League event on July 10. Gossage tells me it would be a natural...since both are entered in the Indy 500. Both drivers have to run to put the $100K in play.

Car Stuff

We are driving the Subaru Impreza WRX wagon, and find it to be a neat little piece. It goes like the hammers of hell when you light the turbo, and with the boxer engine (which is almost kill-proof) should provide lots of opportunity to get a speeding ticket. You might also recognize it as the base for the Saab 9-2. Do you like small sporty wagons..or must your hot rods be coupes?

Dale Jarrett to Toyota?

Interesting, since Ned's son owns VERY successful Ford stores in and around the Charlotte, NC area. Back in January, Dale made comments to media covering the Lowe's Media tour that (they) ought to look at American cars with more objective eyes, saying they could compete with the imports (Ford Fusion was just launched, if I recall correctly).

Wonder if Dale will look for a Toyota franchise if the rumor becomes fact.
