    About an hour ago while I was watching the Weather Channel, a commercial for a lawn mower company came on (Husqvarna). They had a 550 with a car cover on facing a lawn mower in a garage. The car cover came off and both of them flashed their lights at each other, then the 550 opened its hood and revved (didn't sound right). The lawn mower revved back and the 550 closed its hood and put the cover back on as if it had its tail between its legs. They just showed it again so maybe every hour at about 7 minutes past they show it. Pretty cool since I rarely see Ferraris in commercials.

    The first time I heard the commercial, I thought it sounded like a Taurus, lol! Of course if they used the real V12 sound, the mower would've pissed itself. :D

    I had an idea for a commercial similar to that. It starts off with two guys standing in the road in front of a house mouths agape staring at the house. A blonde comes out gets into a Ferrari parked in the driveway and takes off. The guy continue to stare at the house, then it shows a lawn mower in the garage. Thought it be kind of cool.

    Wouldn't a Gallardo have been more appropriate since Lamborghini did, in fact, build tractors and other farm equipment way back when?

    They suck for motocross, but absolutely own for enduro bikes. ;)
