Daily Podcast: Justin Time?
Or not, in this case. Sorry guy, I got back from Beantown kinda late and I sent you an email and you weren't in and Jonny was hot to trot so… we threw this proverbial shrimp on the e-barbie. But I heard the good news, that will surely turn Mr. Lieberman green with envy (JL being a perfect example of a hypocritical hyper-car loving tree hugger): Mercedes is lending you a C63 AMG. Now THAT ought to be fun. Although God knows how we're going to get a Mercedes dealer– sorry, AMG dealer– to lend us a C63 so we can do a mini-review and honor my pledge not to rely on pampered press cars for TTAC review. But the good news (for you and me and not Jonny) is that A) You're going to drive and review a Mercedes C63 AMG for TTAC and B) Mercedes joins the list of automobile manufacturers who don't hate TTAC on sight (site?), any more. Not that we need their love. But their respect is nice. It tells us there are those on the other side of this business who "get it." Meanwhile, don't feel too bad for Jonny. He says he's getting a BMW M3 to review on our behalf. Perhaps you two should meet-up somewhere in the mid-west near our Captain Solo's base. Now wouldn't that be something?
