Real Biden Responds to Fake Biden: I'm A 'Vette Guy

Talking Points Memo ‏@TPM

Real Biden responds to The Onion's Fake Biden: http://tpm.ly/10F8sYu

The Onion's caricature of Vice President Joe Biden held an "Ask Me Anything" chat on the social news site Reddit Friday, in promotion of the satirical newspaper's new e-book, "The President of Vice."

Biden's office released a question from the vice president ahead of the chat, nodding to the famous May 2009 classic Biden headline: "Shirtless Biden Washes Trans Am In White House Driveway".

Q for @reddit AMA with my @TheOnion pal: A Trans-Am? Ever look under the hood of a Corvette? #imavetteguy –VP pic.twitter.com/xPGMBBYl

1. Our VP has a sense of humor. Cheney would have just waterboarded the Trans Am. n/t

8. Here are some real Trans Ams (and some Can Am).

Good: Enjoy a little motor music


Better: and if you liked that, try this - no Holleys, but lots of Lucas stacks

Best: A brace of Webers atop a big block in a British chassis:

2. Joe is the greatest!

He's really the best Veep ever.

And don't you like a White House with a sense of humor, when it's appropriate. They can even laugh at themselves.

7. Car And Driver interviewed Joe

 

And he expounded upon his vette.

However, they got a deluge of hate-mail, as car guys (i.e, car rag subscribers) tend to be wingnuts.

10. But do they read Load & Crash (as it was called by MAD magazine)



Or Car & Driver?

One of those mags test drove anything that moved. I read in the late '70s about the test drive of the Mercedes-Benz GT (Garbage Truck). Curb weight 22,000 lbs.
