Yes, the road.
Eagle Nest, New Mexico. “People like to drive because driving is actually and symbolically an almost perfect mechanism for escape…there is probably no human being who does not have troubles, real or imagined, from which he at times feels the need to flee.” George R. Stewart.

Ambassadorships for Sale: The Rambler Ambassador 990


           


You can have a small country--say, in the Uruguay/Angola range--for a campaign contribution of $_______. Mid-range nations (The Netherlands, Thailand) cost more--it's the American way. And at the top end, our top diplomatic post in Paris reportedly goes to heavyweights only. So if you want an affordable ambassadorship, check out  the Rambler variety. Saw this 1966 Ambassador on the block at Moto Car (207 667 4592) in Ellsworth, Maine.  And check out our blog on that venerable automobile, the Ambassador of India
