end of an era, beginning of the test

the PT cruiser convertible line was shut down permanently today. which means mine was made on the ultimate week of production, just three or four days before The End. whoa.


a car is born

a car built to my specification rolled off the assembly line today in toluca, mexico, which means i now have a car for life.

what's funny is i wouldn't find out that this was the day until 8/29/08 when i got my car back from a 12k oil change and saw that the "production date" was today.

happy born day, car.

i hope you're just like a human in that you don't actually remember the experience. with all those robots, steel and plastic, it has to be gnarly.

i hope you're not like a human in that you try to blame every single thing on the fact (and the way) that you were born today. and no, i don't want to hear about the fact that you're a saggitarius (although i do think it's funny that you were born in the year of the pig).
