    Really good month all around.  Business booming over at Mercedes, Infiniti is really tanking, that brand has almost nothing desirable, I wonder how many of their sales are Q50 rental fleet cars.

    "Business is booming over at Mercedes".

     

    -Lost billions recently

    -Cutting models

    -Still down for the year

    -One really good month (only when compared to the crap month a year ago)

     

    Maybe that good month is because of firesafe lease offers like these.

    Naaaaah. Couldn't be that. Maybe this is proof that there are semi-professional fluffers out there for Mercedes.

     

    There is a certain irony brining up Q50s as rental cars when...

    In any case, all automakers use August to clear inventory to make room for the new cars heading to dealer lots.  No need for any of us to concern ourselves.

    • Etched forever in my memory:  My uncle had his '79 Bronco in the shop for something.  They gave him a Fox body LTD wagon with 3.3L/200 CID I-6 for a loaner.  There was a long stretch of straight road in front of the farm where we lived.  He challenged me to a drag race.  I was driving my '81 Grand Prix with the 3.8L/231 CID V6.  So of course I was eager to show him what my sporty Pontiac could do.   He destroyed me.  NO CONTEST.  It was very bruising to me, a kid of 18 and a GM fan... getting beat by a FORD STATION WAGON with an ANCIENT engine.  He laughed and laughed.
    • I could be wrong, but I believe at this moment the cutline for the trunk lid goes up into the black, so it is larger than it looks at first glance.  I don't think that's all glass. WTF IS THIS?  THIS IS NOT A K5!  THIS RIGHT HERE IS A K5!  GOD I HATE CHEVY FOR DOING THIS!  oh wait
