Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

So, you like the style of the new BWM-sourced Mini, but it would set you back a few too many kopeks? Well, buddy, you now have a choice!

Via AutoWeek, a story about the newest import brand vehicle to hit our shores--is lovely OKA! Which will be viewing for peoples at the L.A. Auto Show!

The article mentions that we will first be receiving the City and Race models.

Powered by a two-pot 749 cc engine producing 35 entire horsepowers, the City model sprints from 0-62mph (100kph) in a breathtaking 20 seconds! The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price comes in at a low, low $7,300, making it easy for you to act all snooty and superior to those Mini drivers who paid WAY too much.

(And, there's a special treat waiting in the wings--something "Designed Especially in Collaboration with your Analyst, recommended for those who would suffer serious SUV withdrawal symptoms"--the OKA SUV! Can hardly wait for that to come over here!)

Happy Motoring!
