Fen and Zabo,

Bob told me today in the hall that he hopes you will both show up to root him on.

Further he inquired as to whether or not either of you were going to enter to compete in the festival of "Bob kicking some young guy from Jalopnik.com's ass".

Can Bob drive the CTS-V to Monticello from Michigan? 'Cause then he can pick me up on his way through.

Actual dialogue from meeting...

"So our average age demographics for Buick is slightly above where we want it, so I think we should focus our marketing towards young professionals, people fresh out of graduate school."

"Wait...what about that little blip down there in the 16-18 age group?"

"Oh, that's just some crazy college kid from Ohio. I think I've seen him spying on us through the window a few times."

So let me get this straight.

Jaguar, you built a "performance sedan" without adequate brake cooling?

Jaguar still tied to ford? Or was ford able to get rid of them?

And I know it's a bit late in responding, but tell him that I drive a ford (unwillingly) and that it's no match for even that Failguar.. <_<
