Warren Brown and Lou Ann Hammond chat about cars on www.washingtonpost.com November 16, 2012

Good Morning Warren and friends,

As the weather changes, it’s harder to go out to your car in the morning and sit in a cold seat and wait for the car to heat up. How many of you have remote start-up? I had the Ford Focus Electric vehicle and it can use remote start-up while the vehicle is still plugged into the grid.

I drove a Porsche Boxster this week to my dentist. My dentist, Dr. Jones, is a practical guy, kind of looks like an old hippy, but underneath loves cars. He kind of smirked at me when he saw the Porsche, in a that’s way too expensive and I couldn’t even afford the gas for it kind of way. I showed him the sticker on the windshield and his eyes widened, “that Porsche gets more miles per gallon than the car I’m driving!”

Let’s chat about cars.
