Feridinand Porsche... did you know he was a chauffer in the military?

He was the chauffeur for Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, after being drafted for military duty.

This was at a point in his life (age 27) when he was already making cars, significantly, the Lonher Porsche hybrid, and he'd been racing that in 1900... so the Archduke has some pull in the personnel dept... to get a race car driver as his Chauffer!

photos I've posted before

a motorcycle with just one cylinder... excusable when it's a 600cc cylinder. The 1936 Bohmerland with sidecar (garish colors though)

Who finds this stuff? The guy who makes . He doesn't write much more than I do.

Gymkhana 5, Ken Block rips up San Francisco

Buick is trying to get your attention... if their car making isn't getting your notice, maybe Shaq, Ving Rhames, or a beautiful blonde will

 Now, if Buick would just go back to making a GSX, GNX, etc etc... they would not need funny commercials, they would have serious free publicity. Why don't they? The Caddy (whatever)  is a Corvette in an expensive suit. Make a Corvette in a Buick body, and let it be cool, not stodgy.
