Oct 9th 2006 2:52PM I bought one of those Park-Zone things with the red/yellow/green lights they show for about $10 off Ebay a long time ago.
I watched it with the sound off, but apparently I didn't miss much. And yeah, for 60K you'd think they could afford a licensed copy of a video program.
Finally - these aren't anything new. One of the hotels I used to stay at in Germany had these in its underground garage to double parking spaces. Apologies to the owner of the Mercedes whose antenna I bent when I raised it up against the garage roof.
Oct 9th 2006 9:41AM I actually got to drive an LS460L yesterday at the Taste of Lexus event in Washington, DC. They had the L and a "regular" LS to drive, as well as a BMW 750i and M-B S550 you could drive to see how they compared to the LS. The course was too short to really get a good feel for any of them, but it was fun to be able to drive these cars I'll never afford. The LS is stuffed with gadgets, even the seat-belt height adjusters are power. They had a demonstration of the self-parking gizmo every couple hours or so, also.
Also got to drive the IS250 AWD/IS350, GS450h, RX400h, SC430, and new ES350.
And they had tons of free food and drinks (non-alcoholic, of course).
Check out www.tasteoflexus.com to see if the event is coming to a city near you. Anyone over 21 can drive.

Sep 28th 2006 10:36AM I know it's real in this car, but every time I see carbon fiber, I think of the many riced out Hondas and Acuras with carbon fiber hoods and trim pieces.
Sep 27th 2006 10:02PM Yes, the great country of Austalia. Is that anywhere near Gemany?
Seriously, doesn't this site have an editor? I know it's just a typo, but c'mon. How long does spell check take?
Sep 26th 2006 10:17AM I've spent quite a bit of time in Dresden for work over the past couple years, and loved every minute of it. The city is beautiful, and only getting better as more construction is done. The location is convenient for trips to other European cities (I visited Budapest, Vienna, Berlin, Munich, Prague, etc).
And not once did I ever feel any negativity towards me as an American.

Aug 15th 2006 10:04AM We just spent two weeks in Thailand in July, and as the above poster (Tommickx) says, pickups were everywhere. Especially the Isuzus and Toyota Hi-lux. We spent some of our travel time in a Ford Ranger (nicer than the ones in the US) and it was definitely used as truck "should" be - negotiating muddy, rutted roads fully loaded with people (4-5 in the cab, plus another 4-5 at least in the bed), and/or cargo.
I had no idea that many trucks were designed there, but it seems believable to me!
Aug 14th 2006 12:40PM "I'm glad I don't live in NY. Or else I'd have to read the NYT."
Yes, because it is against the law to live in NY and not have a NYT subscription.
