Stationary Motion



Apparently the New Ford Kinetic design styling means that the cars look like they are moving even when they're not.
I got stuck behind one for three hours last night...

*Afterthought* Stationary + Motion = Constipation?
My maths is improving.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when they run out of flashy thrusting names for their cars.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the Ford Vest...

BEAST said...

Well how confusing Miss Scarlet , what did they want to do that for!
My suggestion would be a ford gusset

Whirlochre said...

Scope for double de-crotching there, Beast...

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Whirly and Mr Beastie: I want a car that does exactly what it says on the tin. Let me introduce the Ford Screwdriver...

I think I might get motion sick from being in one of those...

Gorilla Bananas said...

How frustrating, Miss Scarlet! I wish I had been there to put a banana up its exhaust pipe. That's an old jungle trick.

MJ said...

Rise above them with a Skycar!

Dave said...

I got Ford's designers to make me a suit for meetings which makes me look like I'm awake even when I'm not.

Lulu LaBonne said...

I'm going to get Ford's designers to make me look blonde and twenty years old.

I'm a bit frightened of MJ's inks now but I loved the skycar and want one!

Lulu LaBonne said...

I am scared of Mj's inks too obviously, but in this case I meant links

MJ said...

*wonders if they serve cake on board the Skycar*

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr XL: Yep, same here... the ad conjures that sea-sick feeling doesn't it?

Mr Bananas: I know! What a silly design... I'm confused enough by the cars that are moving, let alone those that are pretending to move...

MJ: This is so obviously the car for me. I shall put it on my Christmas list.

Dave: Have you tried Clarins Beauty Flash Balm? This may work.

Lulu: Now come on... who wants to look blonde and 20 years old?! Goodness me!

Lulu: I know... I clicked on the link and was waiting for something untoward to happen.

MJ: I think this car might be more suited to muffin...?

Rog said...

I want a car that doffs its cowboy hat when it goes past someone I know.

I'm thinking "Audi Partner"

KAZ said...

My friend was telling me some sob story this afternoon.
I looked like was moved - but I wasn't.

Jimmy Bastard said...

"I got stuck behind one for three hours last night..."

Doll, those pay-and-display car parks can be most disconcerting at times...

eroswings said...

Instead of Ford making cars that look like they're moving, I think it'd be best if they made cars that are energy efficient and not high maintenance.

This is why the American auto industry is lagging behind--it's all questionable style and no substance. They have to start building Transformers just to catch up to the rest of the world.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Rog: Hello and Welcome!
'Audi Partner'... that was a Ford Classic!

Kaz: So stationary movement is not a new concept after all?

Mr Jimmy: Good to see you! Tsk... the traffic flow in the local multi-storey is getting worse and worse...

Mr Swings: It's strange that you have gas guzzlers... and then stop everyone from smoking!

Sx

eroswings said...

Ha! That's because smoking only kills humans; greenhouse gases annihilates entire ecosystems. If we're going down, we're going to take other species down with us. Americans prefer to go big or go home ;)

Eryl Shields said...

I wonder if it will look like it got me to work even when it didn't...

laughingwolf said...

for the record, i drive a german car, and it does move :O lol

PI said...

I wonder if they still use tiny models to make the cars look big and powerful or maybe it's the reverse now to seem green. i think I know what I mean. Carry on.

savannah said...

commericals about commercials, now i've seen it all, sugar! xoxox

Madame DeFarge said...

the wv is 'dopead' which is suspiciously accurate. Why are the streets never this quiet when I'm pootling around? Maybe I'm just not glamourous enough to be allowed to drive anymore.

Hani said...

Hi dear,
Don't forget me!
ok?

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Swings: God bless America!!

Eryl: I really think Ford could be onto something. they are now masters of illusion!

Mr Wolfy: Audi?? BMW?? I like the new Audi TT - I'll keep dreaming.

Pat: Matchbox cars! I used to love them.. I had a Rolls Royce with diamante headlights.

Savvy: I think they got the idea from a TV programme over here called 'Hustle' - both ad and programme feature Marc Warren - I think. Loved the programme...

Madame D: Bloody too clever, that WV. I need a new car. Mine isn't glamorous enough.

Hani: Hello and Welcome! Oh how I like mysterious callers!!! Your profile is giving me no clues! More clues please!!

Dave said...

I came here thinking it was monday.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Dave: SSHHHHUSHHH... some of us haven't got up yet.
Sx

Dave said...

Are you awake yet?

Gadjo Dilo said...

I suppose if you ate items of stationary then you could get constipation! (Has somebody already said that?)

Scarlet-Blue said...

Dave: Only just!!!

Gadj: Items of stationery.... probably would give me constipation... especially as mine are pink and scented...

Beverly Hamilton Wenham said...

Classic car from a tube design. Just where have all the cars with fins and chrome gone? Those were the days, not that I remember them. That was even before my time.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Bev: [I hope you don't mind me calling you Bev] We never had cars with fins here. We had to settle for stick on go faster stripes and a pair of fluffy dice.

mapstew said...

Just dropped in to say hi.

Hi.

Kevin Musgrove said...

Cars with running boards. That's what we need.

mutleythedog said...

I had no idea you were a petrolhead tsk tsk...

Gadjo Dilo said...

Oh, yes, stationery it is. (Hangs head in shame).

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Maps: Hello! Just noticed that my WV is hydia!

Kev: I know! Extra seating space... and somewhere to put anoying aunts.

Mr Mutts: I am permanently parked at the moment.

Gadj: It's an easy mistake and is the second time it's been made on this blog!
