With his song Brick, angry piano banger Ben Folds shifted gears from his usual bombastic fare for a haunting and introspective lament. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Volvo 245 Diesel is itself a brick, and also lets you shift gears, but the question is, will you find its price lamentable?
I always loved the Pace Picante commercials just because of the way the shitkickers said New York City! like the name described a thing dug from between a dead hobo's toes. While it was located in Nashville — well south of the Mason-Dixon line — that same derision was dumped on yesterday's 1979 AMC Pacer wagon, its 82% Crack Pipe loss reflecting its price and not how it tasted in Huevos Rancheros.
