New 2016/2017 Cabriolets!

Somehow it doesn’t seem possible that it is time for the new cabriolet models. I guess the car business is turning into the same marketing practices as other retail sales systems – all year long is valid for new models and also for sales.

This video is about the top 5 cabriolets for the rest of this year and the beginning of next year. The selection and the video are made by Millie Jackson. I don’t recognise the name, so I did a little research, and was immediately confused. Turns out there is a popular singer/musician named Millie Jackson, as well as a few other people. But it appears that “our” Millie Jackson has made a number of car-oriented feature videos, and this is one of the latest ones.

I think you will enjoy it!

Caution: This video is almost 15 minutes long and you will NOT want to stop in the middle!

Car Vending Machine

Car Vending Machine

Hi again! I saw this in a strange place I won’t try to clarify. Suffice it to say, I have never seen one of these, but I have seen a couple of parking garages that worked on the same principle. The system keeps track of your car based on your entry ticket and other info (like read-in of your license number, etc.) and when you want it back, you pay the amount on an electric payment device (cash, credit cards, etc.) and the machine gives you your car back.

It’s great as long as you don’t lose your receipt!

It looks like this car vending machine system works more or less the same way. Enjoy!

Belated Birthday Present?

Hi there,

I think I found your belated birthday present. Unfortunately, it’s called a Sherpa (just “Sherp” in Russian [ Шерп ]) and I can’t afford it; these things run about $50’000 each according to what I read. But it does look like fun! Of course, you would have to have the owners’ handbook translated from Russian. But if they sell enough, they will probably do it themselves! But think of the positive side: you could run through the Bayous with this, even in the floods, and come out right side up!

Here’s the gadget:

Good luck!
