Instant Karma: World’s First Porsche Fails To Sell At Auction Because Of Bad English?

by Anura Guruge

Classic.

A German car and a Dutch auctioneer. I know the Dutch have a long, storied history when it comes to auctioneering BUT how do you end up with one that even his OWN PEOPLE can’t understand.

This was a multi-million dollar question. Nobody at Sotheby’s was paying attention? This is crazy.

But, I class it as ‘Instant Karma‘. German cars give you that. Trust me on this.

This is BRILLIANT!

Made my day.

I am SO, SO, SO PROUD of this young man. He is going to go far. He has discernment, courage and chutzpah.

I would be PROUD to have him as a son, though I would NEVER, EVER insult my kids by buying them a lousy German car, even if I had to sell a kidney to buy a Jaguar.

Jaguar should give this young man a new car for FREE. This was quite the statement.

Way to go.

It does NOT happen often, but every once in awhile an Indian shows that they have tremendous good tastes.

The New ‘Bentley Flying Spur’ Is Quite Spectacular, But As Far As I Am Concerned It Is a German VW!

by Anura Guruge



It breaks my heart, these once GLORIOUS British companies now under German or Indian ownership. Bentley part of VW and my BELOVED Jaguars part of Indian Tata Motors.

This new ‘Flying Spur’, like all Bentleys, is near magical in its presence and gorgeousness — BUT it is no longer ICONICALLY British. Aaahhh! Why or why? Why did we let this happen.

Yes, I salivated over it, not that I would ever pay that kind of money for a car. But, an old Bentley, when it was still a British Bentley, might still be on the cards at some point. SMILE.

Anywho …

Just wanted to share with you and also express my distress as to what has happened to Dear Bentley.

‘Canyon de Chelly’ — The (Bovine) Cows You Meet (This One In Chinle).

Saw number of cows walking around, merrily, in Chinle. One, however, and rather distressingly, had a very bad foot. Not sure it got hit. Nobody seemed to care. We saw it lying by the side of the road, alive, many hours after we had first seen it crossing the road, dragging its leg. Sad. But, locals were just going about as if all was well. Not much we could have done. I still think about it.

This was on the North Rim road, i.e., Rte 64, around ‘Del Muerto‘. I saw it when I was driving North. Made a mental note where it was. Stopped on the way back. I had to park the car and backtrack a bit on foot, BUT it was well worth it.

Another BMW Owner Experiences ‘Instant Karma’ As His Car Catches Fire …

Not the first time that BMWs have caught fire in front of their bewildered owners. There was a spate of such fires in late 2017 which even prompted a recall of BMWs.

And now this. Could not happen to a nicer bunch of folks. Well, anybody who is familiar with this blog or I will know my utter disdain for most things German — especially their bloody cars. No, I have not forgiven them as yet for bombing England during WWII! I am a very patriotic Brit. Hence why I find all misfortunes involving German cars amusing.

Enjoy.

Instant Karma.

Instant Karma
by John Lennon.


Well as any regular reader of this blog knows, I, because of how the Germans destroyed Liverpool (England), refuse to have any truck with German cars.

I had already told you about this BMW spontaneous combustion back in May of this year. I did. {Smile}

It cracked me up then, it cracks me up NOW. I have no sympathy. I am relentless and ruthless when it comes to my antipathy to German cards. I tell people who own German cars, to their face, that it impresses me none and grieves me much. And that included my adoptive father

Enjoy.

Instant Karma.
