Yesterday I almost took a 6th-generation Polo taxi. Decided to walk a little more, went to a bakery a few blocks away, and then to another taxi stand where I took a Virtus. Well, the probability of taking a Virtus instead of a Polo while looking for a taxi is much greater anyway.

Not a Beetle



justacarguy.blogspot.coma Chinese car company called Ora, is making fake VW Beetles. They call the new model, the Punk Cat

It's an interesting reinterpretation of the People's Car. Blingy, but that looks more like 'chrome' plastic than chrome plating.

Makes me wonder how low is the quality of that fake chrome, compared to some other Chinese stuff with a similar trim.

That seems to be the consensus. I'm not that good at multi-lingual puns. How's about Barely Lethal?

And I'm past wanting to cut a hole in the roof of my Baja.

Here's the original:

Starbucks had sent a cease-and-desist letter to the owner of a coffee truck for using a name and a logo which bore resemblances to the Starbucks brand. The coffee truck (actually a van) was previously named Starkombis Koffee. I already disliked Starbucks for its support to some political BS that I disagree with, and now I got another reason to not buy anything from Starbucks.

All over the internet, favorite of the mid America right. Burnt tasting however, needs much pumpkin flavor for me to drink.
