How About Those Magnets?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The second batch of EPautos magnets went out last week; they should be arriving any day now, if they haven’t already arrived. How are you guys liking them? I’m thinking it might be fun to post a collage of reader pics of their cars’ rear ends festooned with the Don’t Be a Clover! magnets. If you like the idea, too – send me a pic of your car showing the EPautos logo and I will post them (here’s the first one!) on the site. Wouldn’t it be great if we could start a meme? Like Who is John Galt?Clover 1

Only better.

Because somewhere out there, our Clover is festering. The ur Clover who started it all. Who gave us a name for our pain. The idea of him – maybe her? – spotting an EPautos magnet and possibly stroking out fills me with black joy.

So, let’s do what we can!

Also: I was a guest on Bill Meyers’ show again this morning; I will have the audio clip on site soon – hopefully before the end of the day tomorrow.

And (would you believe) they sent me another “e” hybrid? Crikey! This one’s another BMW, too. An X5 eDrive. Right of the bat, I dinna like it. $70,000 sticker – which isn’t what I object to as such. I am not Bernie Sanders. I don’t hate the rich but I dislike stupidity. And anything that costs $70k is not about saving anything, especially gas money.

So, while I had to hold back my vitriol for the Volt, I feel it eructing again – and now I have a target. Stay tuned! depends on you to keep the wheels turning! The control freaks (Clovers) hate us. Goo-guhl blackballed us.

  1. I have Dr. neighbors that are going to spend about $70k on the new Volvo CUV hybrid – all for the image. It’s no longer about rational, it’s about image- damn the cost.

    • Woman takes tot into the doc cause he swallowed magnets the older kid had. Doc’s trying to get away for an important meeting and doesn’t want to miss his flight. He tells the nurse to take care of it, small magnets, kid will be ok. Nurse returns and says the mom is really distraught and wants to see the doc. Doc says no time, gotta run, you handle it, ask her what sort of magnets. Nurse comes back and says he ate 5 or 6 ball magnets about 1/4″ in diameter. Doc says tell her they’ll pass, he’ll be fine. Nurse comes back in and says the woman is really upset, doc says I’m getting that way myself. Take care of it. Nurse returns and says mom is very upset and feels she needs to do something. Doc says Tell her to take him home, stick him to the fridge door and when he falls off everything will be ok.
