Wherever there's a tow truck, there's a tow truck guy


At approximately 15:00 today, the Justy (pictured) was taken to an undisclosed location on a tow truck that was operated by a tow truck guy (also pictured, left).

Once it reaches its destination (which I can't reveal to you - undisclosed, remember), the following modifications will be made, one of which is not facetious:

-Armor. A protective layer will be added that is not only superlight (preserving our excellent gas mileage) but, according to DoD specifications, is impervious to a .30-06 round at ten meters.
-On-board electronics and telemetry. Available to the driver of the car, as well as its support crew at the aforementioned undisclosed location, will be the following: engine temperature, fluid levels, altitude, velocity, body temperature, and the location of all metallic objects within a kilometer.
-Brakes. Will enable driver to arrest the vehicle's movement should such a need arise.

I don't really need to tell you that there is no stopping us.

In unrelated news, Paul and Audrey will be submitting respective 200-hour-long music playlists to an arbitration committee. Their decision is, of course, final (because that's how arbitration works.) Paul has been advised that inclusion of "Mambo Number 5" more than three or four times is, in the words of a pre-arbitration consultant, "really pushing her buttons for no good reason."

Paul, you're really inspiring confidence in the masses by posting a photo of our car on A TOW TRUCK. does that say 'i'm gonna make it' to you?

Well, maybe that doesn't. but the look on your face sure does.

Go team!

Wow! Audrey this is fantastic. Clearly you're not in Great Neck anymore. And additionally, you look mahvelous. Wish I could say the same for the Justy. Anyway, I'm seriously impressed. (BTW, this is Laura's mom)

My brother had a Justy... and as crazy as he is, he once raced a bmw 3 series and could keep up with it... either my brother is a very good driver or the other guy wasn't really trying...

Also, on one Xmas eve, a pedestrian ran right in front of him and he crashed the car... which is why he missed the fire that destroyed our house that night... oh, well...

Audrey and Paul, please put my girlfriend Dorothy and I in touch with your arbitration committee. Blockbuster won't let us into the store any more.

Yes, please, my buttons are getting tired.
