Teach ’em Young, Teach ’em Right
Hi, race fans! I’ve missed you!
There’s plenty to talk about – both cars and life – but I just had to share a delightful development in the care and feeding of my young protege, Auto Buddy. You may remember Auto Buddy from his W Hotel rappeling observations and his impudent ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He is unreasonably cute.
Well, my young friend has developed quite the taste in fine sheet metal, and I am pleased to report that he and I have similar favorites (i.e. he is smart). Lil Buddy’s mother recently texted me this photo, which I must say made my motoring heart go pitter pat.
There’s my guy, posing (probably illegally) next to the fine machine that is the Audi R8. Get ’em, Auto. I applaud the excellent selection, as well as the bucking of rules and regulations. Can’t no barriers – even tastefully frosted and German – hold us back!
We missed you, too, and are glad you’re back. And with a great picture of the Future of Driving! It’ll be fun to watch Auto Buddy come into his own over the next few years. Can you imagine a time when he looks back on that picture and marvels at the close proximity he had to such an “antique” vehicle?
Ha! It’s funny to think that an R8 could ever be anything but futuristic. Auto Buddy will have to guest-blog in a few years.
I think Auto Buddy is probably ready to guest blog NOW. He IS brilliant, you know.
