Toyota trivia

The new line of cars manufactured by Toyota under a different label, "Scion" is pretty clever. They intentionally market themselves to be basic well made imports with a million different ways to customize them to make them your own.
"Scion" actually means: a detached living portion of a plant joined to a stock in a grafting, or it can also mean a descendent or child.

I have this theory on vehicles that cars with names are inevitably less attractive than cars with numbers. Which would you rather have, a Pontiac Grand Prix or a Chrysler 300? It's even more obvious with imports. Would you rather drive a Taurus or a 540il? (Ford or BMW)

I am a car freak, love them, can identify make and model of any late model (1990 or newer although I like older cars too.) It's not really about materialism, (I drive an 8 year old Nissan with 110,000 miles.) I just like cars.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on the lcdtv in the back of my Hummer.

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
