  1. Ah, the old “put the car in neutral and drive the truck out from under it” trick. Saves you a bundle on ramps.

      1. I swear to Ghod I know where this is. It looks like the Kent East Hill or Renton.

  2. Having finally arrived in the Saturday afternoon sofa, I was suddenly exposed to shockus automobilis severus: A Mini ad focusing around how cheap it is to lease the thing (what?) and, worse, they use a SAAB 99 (!) to shine some attitude on the current Mini. The SAAB also carries American plates compared to the Norwegian-licensed Mini. So that’s triple wrong and I’m only on page 10 of my magazine.

    1. This reminds me of a recent Ford commercial that annoys me a lot. I can’t find it on Youtube, but it goes something like this:

      “Car buying is complicated.”

      (Shows couple looking at financing percentages, total price of the car, different payment choices, etc.)

      “We made it simple.”

      (Shows just bi weekly payment)

      The wife/girlfriend says, “Just like my paycheck!”

      1. Entirely rational behaviour. When I turned the page, the SAAB was what jumped at me, and then I got annoyed that it actually was a Mini ad I was looking at…
        The whole payment-by-date-phenomenon is baffling. It appears a lot of people don’t look past that number, even though banks and financial parts need to display more info in the fine print already.

      2. For some eminently reasonable aesthetic preferences, I find myself looking past the Mini and at the SAAB.
        FIFY 😉

    2. Perhaps a fellow New Yorker was taking the pilgrimage to Trollhattan like I plan to some day, and just happened to get caught in the background of a photoshoot. 😉
