I doubt Ken is in the northern cold region. I heard he was in the tropics checking out a new car:

Those young ladies are his highly qualified staff assistants. They are certified collector car appraisers, Wharton-educated financiers, nutritional experts, and physical activity trainers.
Their slender figures had nothing to do with his decision to add them to his staff. Ken is a man known for his forbearance, fortitude, prudence, temperance, integrity, loyalty, honor, and generosity. In fact, his resume is so spotless, he is unqualified to seek political office.Doc

That was a pretty exciting finish to the race today. I think this was the first time EVAR that I cheered for a Chevy to win. Two reasons! I wanted Mark Martin to win The Daytona 500 and I had his name in the pool!
Kurt Busch greased my palm with a cool $20.00 for leading mid-point of the race and I could have made it a clean sweep and had another $66.00 (for go fast stuff) if Martin could have held off that ass wipe Harvick!
Oh well, I most likely won't be watching another NECKCAR race until the boys roll into Watkins Glen this Summer.
Won't it be interesting when those Toyota haulers roll into Talladega and Texas for the "Good 'Ol Boys"

Did you catch the comments in the pre-race show when they mentioned the Toyota Camry (which has been taking flak for being non-american) is the only car represented in NASCAR that is actually made in the US? I thought that was hilariuous.

I was cheering for Boris to win it all. He did get a 14th place finish which should help fund another day for his team.
I do support the new Roush-Fenway team. Roush's new partner must be a good guy (John Henry, a money manager ).

I welcome the Toyota's. It's just another car to beat up on. I never did cheer for those German cars (Dodge Charger's). If I bought a German car, it would be one of them sporty things:

In the end does it really matter. I watched half the race and was having a REALLY tough time telling what the make of any car was on the track. I really don't see the value in supporting that type of racing from a manufacturers position anymore. I wonder how much Pontiacs sales were hurt when they pulled out of NASCAR?Mark Wilson

Look on the bright side, I am sure Toyota's carburated V8 engine sales will really pickup now.

I don't have a clue. I guess the folks in Dearborn think that they get some sort of value from the brand recognition in the NASCAR races? I guess Toyota thought it was important since they entered NASCAR (and gave their teams a bunch of money)?
Brand equity is the value built-up in a brand. It is measured based on how much a customer is aware of the brand. The value of a company's brand equity can be calculated by comparing the expected future revenue from the branded product with the expected future revenue from an equivalent non-branded product. This calculation is at best an approximation. This value can comprise both tangible, functional attributes and intangible, emotional attributes.
I know I am a Ford fan since the days I was a young lad (~1910 , but I'm still younger than Bruce). I remember reading about those GT40's dominating LeMans and those Cobra's and Shelbys which dominated sports car racing. That money was well spent in that I've bought many Fords through the years.
I have no idea if the younger generation cares about it. I am glad that Ford still supports racing.

To my friends here, I'll be moving to North Little Rock, Arkansas next month. I may not be able to visit regularly for awhile. Maybe I will see Tom and some others at the SAAC meet at Hallet in Tulsa? I will also have to look into NASA parcipitation there.Shane Scott

Hope this qualifies for the "Off Topic" thread section. Has anyone in here ever sold a US car to someone who lives in Canada? If so any legal stipulations that would be nice to know about. IE: said Canadian purchases US car then tries bringing it to across the border. What could go wrong and come back to haunt the US seller 2 years down the road?

It's always a good sign when you have to open the shop doors to warm up the shop!!!
Today, Spring Fever has officially hit! And I'm far from ready for the event in just over 4 weeks. But the good news is we are headed to the greatest single concentration of Corvettes on the Planet!
Oh, my bad! I should be a little more considerate of our GM Brethren!
It's going to be a good time! No Doubt!

Cant scratch the open track itch yet? 12 hours of Sebring is on SPEED today, thousands of Nascar fans and rednecks are going to be having withdrawals as there will be no NASCAR, Monster trucks or bobsledding (I honestly dont know nor even care why SPEED carries bobsledding) on SPEED for the entire afternoon and part of this evening!!! Its a rare occurance be sure to tune in.
