Wow. I had to share this.  This absurdity almost rings of Johan pitching a "Smart Car (meep-meep)" instead of, say, a sleek little doozie from Stuttgart.  It's just not right somehow, IMHHHHHO.... 
 
No, I'm not a Dylan fan, but still!  I was too young to know what hippies really were, but still! I at least thought that Mr. Dylan purported to believe in something and perpetuate it...so naive, I know.
 
Wasn't Dylan some sort of icon for the hippie set, and didn't they (at some level) reject materialism, consumerism, etc., as part of their basic belief system? Well, here's his latest commercial venture:

They are very nice cars (it says here). Carl and I had one to take us to a TV show in Ca,and we decided there and then to get one for the next tour. We ended up with a Dodge,or a GMC version ('cos they're better'said management---'no,they're cheaper'said the band) which had the crappiest Sat-Nav I've ever come across."Neverlost",it was called. Cross out the'n'.

I think my next vehicle will be a Lincoln Navigator but even then I'll probably keep the Little Red Gypsy Wagon.

The dealership is so good about anything I need and the salesman was just awesome. I seriously doubt the salesman at the Lincoln place would have sat in the front seat singing "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" with me. He has a band and knows all the words and could fill in the places I had forgotten them.

What she lacks in pedigree she makes up for in personality.

Ladyshade, I can get you what is called the "Friends Discount" with Ford.
Let me know and I can get you a pin number.  Anyone else interested also
have your dealer email me! We have several discounts available for this year.
If you have a family member that works for Ford you can get a better discount.

Boz....there isn't a happy thing about it except finding someone else who loves it!  

The guy is from Duluth, Minnesota and he holds it sacred.



Denise, I appreciate the offer, but Little Rav isn't 6 months old yet.

I love The Canadian legend and his music.
He has made singing thru his nose an art form.

"Sweet Guinivere,you're off to the coal town tonite
And your young brother Ernie's up in Pittsburgh,PA
You know mother loves you and dad's in the mine
So don't go to the coal town,Guinivere,if you're kind"

That's ok LadyShade, anytime I can try to sell a vehicle for Ford to help
keep my health insurance is worth it!  Michigan has an unemployement rate
of nearly 8% percent and getting worse.  Its just plain bad here. The Motor
City isn't running the way it used to.

I agree,Fishy--the Chevy Tahoe is damn good. Not many people know that the Chevrolet Motor Company was founded by ancient, suave, French crooner Maurice Chevrolet in 1938,while he was performing 'Gigi' in Lake Tahoe, hence the name.

And we all know Mercedes Benz comes from the lyrics of "Hotel California."
