We are here, at the 2013 New York Show, and have just sobered up from last night’s parties. I haven’t heard from Jeff and I assume the worst. I will contact his next of kin, the two dachshunds.
Myself, I spent most of my evening with the nice folks from Jaguar and Land Rover. First they showed me the XKR-S GT, which is a lighter and more track-worthy XKR-S. Then they premired the Jaguar XJR, which is the XJ with the XKR-S engine. Both cars looked great.
Then I saw this Aston, randomly parked on the street, next to a cool mural. There are so many interesting cars on NYC streets, almost more interesting than the show.
Anyway, then I went to a quick and small Honda party. There was an updated Odyssey, which had a ShowVac vacuum cleaner in the trunk. The vacuum cleaner runs off the car battery, only when parked, and can reach the front foot wells.
The Odyssey also had minor face-lifting and trim clean up. All in all, a very nice minivan, but probably pricey when fully loaded. Also saw John Davis from Motorweek at that party. Sadly, he did not know what the Hooniverse was, so I told him that it’s like that other website but better. 😛
Back to Land Rover. While having drink #5, I noticed some hot chicks were taking pictures with some dude.
“That dude looks just like Daniel Craig… but shorter, and he’s wearing skinny jeans, so it cannot be the him, I mean fucking James Bond, no way” I thought.
It was him, and he drove the Range Rover Sport onto the stage too. Also, I want a new Range Rover.
