Volkswagen Ad Reminds You To Beware Of Little Old Ladies

Posted in Cars, Funny Videos, Used Cars, Volkswagen by Kurt Ernst | January 3rd, 2011 | 3 Responses |

Think you’re getting a “lightly used” car, just because you’re buying it from a little old lady? Never heard the Jan & Dean tune, “The Little Old Lady From Pasadena?” Just remember that all those kindly grandmother types may not be what they appear. Take the guy that signed off on my competition license way back when – Les Gaylord was in his seventies then, and looked like any other retiree. You’d mistake him for an easy marque on the track at your own peril, since the guy still had track records at a lot of the SCCA approved tracks in the Western U.S. Lesson learned? Old doesn’t necessarily translate into slow. A tip of the hat goes to Fireball Tim Lawrence for finding this one!

    In case you were wondering, the text in the end says:
    Not every old lady is reliable/thrustworthy.
    Every Golf is.
