I wish, but no. (I like the way you think!!!) It's in the big Autostadt museum in Wolfsburg, Germany and the museum is right beside their big factory in Wolfsburg. They have all sorts of amazing interactive exhibits, but my favorite (besides the Abbey Road Beetle) is two gigantic glass silos with a mechanized system. It works like one of those vending machine. In Europe if you buy one, you can travel there to pick it up and watch it come down the silo!! Anyone been there?

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.

I have an old beater, a 1993 Honda Accord.  The clearcoat is peeling, there's a little rust around the wheel wells and door corners, the hood cable is broken so I have to trip the latch with a screwdriver, and the a/c gave out in March.  It was driven by high school students for awhile, so the upholstery has a few burn holes and stains.  However, it only has 130k original miles on the engine and body!  The drive train has never given me any trouble - always starts, runs smooth, doesn't use oil (I've had it a year).  She's a bit eccentric of course... The underbody is not rusted out like many old Hondas.  I paid 1900 USD for it, and 3 people have asked me Out Of The Blue if I wanted to sell it.  I'm hoping to trade up in the spring actually.

To ramble on, let me tell you about the aftermarket stereo I got.  90 USD.  4 sources:  Tuner, Aux (3/8"), Bluetooth, and USB flash drive.  It interfaces better with iphones', navigating the music player through the radio controls.  On my android I have to start the cd, but then I can set it to just keep playing the next cd or a pl).  The flash drive is wonderful, although the file structure can only be one level deep (meaning, .  I've got a 32Gb flash drive with about 75 cds that's in permanent residency (it would hold a LOT more, but then would become too difficult to find the album you want while driving), and a 16Gb that I bring in and switch sometimes.  The coolest thing is, it has a microphone, so you connect your phone via bluetooth, press one key on the car stereo to answer/hang up, and talk into the mic which is mounted on the dash in front of me, and the sound comes out of the speakers.  To make a call, you press the one key and say "Call Tommy cell" (or whoever).

It's a lot better than nothing!! As long as people keep the thread alive! And I love the Julia reference.
