The closest thing in the US to F1, Champ Car and IRL, are recombining. That’s good for the sport.
In Geneva, Alfa Romeo’s production 8C Spider will be unveiled. Only 500 people will have this inspiring piece of motoring art sitting in their driveways.
The 2009 Jaguar XJ portfolio is looking…well…it’s another Jag. It’s beautifully the same old thing.
My friend was at the MoMA in NY, NY this past weekend and sent me a couple ads that I might just enjoy. And I did. This advertising poster by Hohlwein is from the 1912 Audi show. The colors and pattern on the chauffeur’s coat are so attractive…but what’s he doing? Listening for the quiet Audi engine?
And this is Der Neue BMW from c. 1930 by Henry Ehlers. That’s a straight on view of a tire on the left with a fender above and suspension stacked across. The little arm is the steering.
Klimt himself “said, ‘On the left a group of figures, the beginning of life, fruition, decay. On the right, the globe as mystery. Emerging below, a figure of light: knowledge.’ Critics were disturbed by its depiction of men and women drifting in an aimless trance. The original proposal for the theme of the painting was ‘The Victory of Light over Darkness’, but what Klimt presented instead was a dreamlike mass of humanity, referring neither to optimism nor rationalism, but to a ‘viscous void'” as one critic describes it (wiki).
I’ve never had President’s day off before. And I had a lovely time. I prepared for the imminent arrival of a projector. I might be a little excited.

I spent too long on the phone and computer today missing this beautiful weather. So I opened the roof on the way home and let all the sun in. Apparently it looked as enjoyable as it felt. I enjoy the second looks I get in this car. I also love it when a couple of girls in some generic ‘car’ pull up and slow down and look and smile…and pull up and slow down and…repeat. Yes, a car should make people smile.

I might have just bought a DLP Projector by Dell for $430.
