A Big Thank You. . .

Thank you to BSNYC for your wit. And for not yet jumping the shark. I mean, I've only just discovered your blog in the last few months; it would be a pity.

Thank you to people who drive vehicles like the following:

I don't know who you are, but I'm guessing you will, somehow, some time, provide material for me to post about on this blog. I mean, this thing is like a rocketship. I wonder if you wear a space suit while you drive it? I couldn't see into your window, which is a shame. My car is quite low to the ground, while yours obviously looms high overhead, like a giant whale gliding above the hermit crabs and snails living on the ocean floor.

The same goes for people who drive vehicles like this one:
You are my hero. As a wee young little boy, Test Drive was my favorite video game franchise. The Lotus Esprit Turbo was my car of choice in Test Drive - it was British, which was cool. It was the first video game I ever played enough to blister my fingers. (Second and third, for those interested, were Ice Hockey and Metroid)

And with that, I close my first ever blog post. I don't expect any resounding feedback, since I am currently the only one who even knows this blog exists. Bonus points if anyone can point out where the above photos were taken, or name the car I was driving in either of them.

Is it a Mitsubishi Lancer and a Ferrari 512?

Wow! A comment!

I feel obliged to give you a prize, despite the fact that you are completely wrong on both counts.

I mean, I can understand the Lancer comment - the vents on the dash look kinda similar. And I suppose the car is similar to, say, an Evo - at least in spirit.

However, I hate to be a downer here, but the red car is indeed not a 512 (I do have a photo of a red Ferrari, but I'm saving it for a future post). Asking people to guess the second car would have to have been a joke on my part, since the badging on the back of the car clearly gives it away. Not to mention the fact that I mention what the car was a sentence or two after the photo!

So, good luck next time. Here is your consolation prize.

Sorry about the dumb-assed comment. That's what I get for listening to Jim Rome, reading blogs, and trying to do my job all at the same time. Not very good at multi-tasking sometimes. I'll figure your vehicle sooner or later.

There was a dumbassed comment? I missed it! No worries.

If it's any sort of hint, your country of origin was correct.
