Pray for Jonathan


Recommended Posts

Our friend Jonathan Maxson -- "Concours Jon," or "Q-Tip Max" to those who know him -- recently was injured in a horrific scooter accident. In his never-ending quest to "go green" and save the environment, our friend was riding his Vespa. While looking down to check his manhood (as scooter riders must do from time to time - it's in the owner's manual), Scooter Jon was run off the road by a Giant MegaTruck F-350, which -- given its size -- continued on its merry way, apparently not noticing that it had hit the Vespa (a scooter being a mere fly spec to this vehicular Mastadon).

Concours Jon broke his hand, instantly ruining not only his sex life, but also, curbing his ability to wipe the last remaining specs of dust, dirt, grime and grease from underneath the exhaust manifold (no clean-car contest is won, without cleaning under the exhause manifold). To add insult to injury, JM was knocked Loopy - which for those of us that know and love him, meant that we could not distinguish between that, and the normal state of his being.

I only recently learned about this horrific state of affairs. And to think, I've been giving him shit on line, and chiding him for not participating on the board -- when all along, the poor man was recovering from his unfortunate encounter with the pickem-up truck.

Because we are a community, brothers and sisters in arms, kindred souls, I am establishing immediately the "Get Well Jonathan, Don't Die Yet, You Old Hippie" Memorial Fund in his honor. You may send your contributions directly to me, c/o Otis at


PO Box 13

Kensington, Maryland 20895

Please sent your contributions in cash only, one dollar bills (plus ten dollars for the cover charge). Give often, give now, and give frequently. I promise that the bills will be gartered - excuse me, I mean, used - for good purposes, all in the name (and honor) of our friend Jonathan, one-handed Vespa riding bandit that he now is.

I received an offline inquiry, (1) wondering what I would do with the money received, and (2) implying that I was going to blow the money in some nudie bar somewhere. Oh, how little faith have ye; moi?!? I can't imagine what I could possible have done to give anyone that impression.

Each donor has my personal vow that each dollar bill will be placed in trust and used judiciously to pay for a private nurse for Max Q-Tip. With only one hand available for use, Jonathan's personal hygene has suffered, and he clearly needs a sponge bath. Or an enema. Or both.

Give often, and give generously. If we receive enough, perhaps we'll order a day and a night nurse, for 24-hour care. Our own Max Q-Tip -- co-founder of the Herndon event, Hippie Coffee Company sponsor, Easy (Scooter) Rider, and all-around man about town -- deserves nothing but the best.[/u]

Maybe Bill Williams will allow us to pass the plate, and take up a collection for Jonathan, at the Bowie event on Saturday?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
