Yet another week of mind boggling car industry wanking here in The Garage, most of it of little interest to readers so I won’t elaborate. Suffice it to say that I’m happy to be hanging out in front of the laptop on a wickedly cold Sunday afternoon reading this week’s contributions. This week’s CoW is a bit light, but we have some fun reading so grab a cold one and get ready for a hot lap around the auto blogs.
First up this week we’ll stroll on over to the Madeline Kane’s fun place. Mad is looking for readers to submit their very own limerick or haiku. Her own creation is a little ditty about the dangers of consuming Italian Fare while driving.
Next up, we have an odd little post at Green Rising. It’s a post about the evils of coal and I wasn’t sure just how Vihar was planning to tie in the Wheels portion of the CoW until I got to the end. The final question seems to be GM or Toyota? I’m leaning towards Toyota.
I’ve been aware of our team mate Gary Faules for a number of years, even though The Garage’s Ontario headquarters are thousands of miles away from Silicon Valley. Why? Because Gary’s son Will was the kid who began racing a Viper at the ripe old age of 13. Stuff like that travels through the enthusiast community. So what does this have to do with today’s CoW? Well, as Brian Vermette points out, NASCAR is thinking about raising the age limit for drivers in the Cup Series from 18 to 21. As Brian points out, perhaps they should be thinking more about experience rather than age. On the other hand, I don’t know if I agree with excluding a former World Champion due to a “lack of experience”.
That’s it for another week. Be sure to swing by next Sunday for yet another hot lap of the auto blogs. Bloggers, remember to submit your post before midnight on Saturday to be included in the next edition.
