2009 Nissan GT-R: Award Winning

May 11, 2009

Oh yeah! The accolades for the 2009 Nissan GT-R just keep piling up.

Mike & Tas got married this weekend, and they had their reception at a bowling alley, where they sprung for free tacos and free lane & shoe rental. Attendees were invited to bring their unique or vintage cars to a car show to be voted-on by the other guests.

And, yes, our GT-R came home with a major award. How major? Why, it won the coveted "Long Hauler" award, of course. Impressive, Huh? Cleary. I drove the car all the way from Santa Monica, a whole 30 miles. Talk about dedication to your friends...

Yes, the "G" got beat out of the People's Choice by a cherry '57 Ford T-bird. Damn T-birds --who has a chance against one 'o them when grandparents are allowed to vote? That's stacking the deck, that is! And the Bride's Choice went to a numbers-matching frame-off restored '55 Chevy -- the same one they used to get from the chapel to the reception. Talk about unfair lobbying for consideration!

But *sniff* I'm man enough to take it. I don't think I'll file an official protest. After all, the GT-R did bring home some hardware.

And good luck to you Mike & Tas. If your reception was any indication, you'll do just fine. Have a wonderful life together.
