Like the Maserati Man Said, “Beautiful cars, beautiful women, they go together, no?”

There’s a guy who works for Maserati that I’ve gotten to know over the years of working the auto show media previews. I knew Buick had a hit on its hands with the Enclave when he told me that the then new Enclave concept was the best looking car at the show. He and I have debated whether or not it makes sense to have beautiful women standing next to the cars. He told me that beautiful cars and beautiful women go together. I told him that I liked cars and he liked cars, and that I liked women and that he liked women. Then I got him to admit that if he had to choose between looking at a beautiful woman and looking at a beautiful fast car, the car would lose. But I’ll let you be the judge. We posted these photos from the ’11 NAIAS back in January, but back then we were just starting out, there wasn’t much traffic and most of you haven’t seen these. I was a complete newbie back then. The way the galleries were displayed were clunky and slow to load.

Also, Autoline After Hours this week featured Margery Krevsky, who manages a talent agency and wrote Sirens Of Chrome: The Enduring Allure of Auto Show Models, a history of models’ and product specialists’ roles in automotive marketing. That seems to me to be a good enough reason to repost these photos, now resized for faster loading and with a Flash player that works a bit more elegantly than our old solution.

    Does the gal at the top believe she is a baked potato?

    It looks as if she is wearing aluminum foil.

    To each their own, I suppose.

    I DO like baked potatoes.

    And mashed and fried and scalloped.

    I have never met a tater I didn’t like but, alas, and I say this with HUGE anguished sobs, I was forced to greatly curtail the amount of potatoes consumed due to their high carbohydrate content.

    Also greatly reduced was biscuits and gravy.

    Oh the sacrifices we make.

    And taters, gravy etc. are among the affordable foods.

    Have you priced fresh produce lately?

    Here atop the Ozark Plateau fresh veggies are pert-near unaffordable for those such as I.
