Why buy the cow?

When you can get the milk for free?

Instead, drive a funky cow car.

Or cruise in a fancy Cowdelac.

Racing cow cars has its rewards.

But I prefer this little cownvertible. It's sporty, stylish and very Guernsey.

Cowabunga! Dude, this surfer cow version of an old 1948 Ford Woodie is sweet.

Last word about cows and cars:
A man’s car stalled on a country road.  When he got out to fix it, a cow came along and stopped beside him.  “Your trouble is probably in the carburetor,” said the cow.

Startled, the man jumped back and ran down the road until he met the farmer.  He told the farmer his story.

“Was it a large red cow with a brown spot over the right eye?” asked the farmer.


“Oh, I wouldn’t listen to Bessie,” said the Farmer.  “She doesn’t know anything about cars.”

Fear of Driving

A book about a high-class woman trying to overcome her fear of driving? Doesn't sound like a theme anyone would want to warm up to, but The God of Driving has received a number of favorable reviews - which could be a result of the interplay between a handsome, swarthy driving instructor and a trendy socialite with a phobia. Sounds like the makings of a motorized Swept Away - or should it be called Driven Away?
As a top correspondent for Vanity Fair magazine, Amy Fine Collins leads a glamorous life, a charmed whirlwind of gala parties, couture clothing, and five-star travel. In Manhattan, where she is whisked around in taxis and limousines, she has been able to disregard her long-standing fear of driving, a legacy handed down from her accident-plagued family. But when the brilliant and determined Amy finally decides to confront her driving phobia, she does not foresee how far from her elegant turf this resolution will take her.

A mysterious, good-looking Turk named Attila is dispatched to her doorstep in a dual-brake Acura, and in him Amy discovers not only a superhumanly skilled instructor but also a wise, patient, and capable man who, inexplicably and irresistibly, over the course of their yearlong lessons, begins to transform and transport her.

Full Service Museum

Be careful visiting the Museo Fisogni - Museum of Gas Stations, you'll end up spending a whole day puttering around the amazing collection of signs, ads, brochures, gasoline cans, globes, promotional toys, gas pumps and other objects from our hydrocarbon-fueled past.

Its curator, Guido Fisogni, is not just a collector, but a scholar of industrial art and design, who has restored and catalogued the boundless ephemera the gasoline age, because they are...
"... pleasing esthetic appendages to the industrial arts... important witnesses to the rapidity of change. Industrial production, by its nature, quickly consumes its own products in order to make way for newer, more beautiful, more efficient ones."
His Milan, Italy-based museum is a tribute to the beauties of the "inefficient past."

After over 30 years, Fisogni is looking to sell the entire collection for exhibition. For information please call +39.029101398 or write to Museo Fisogni
