DT COW: Commenter of the Week

Another week gone down the drain- the staff at DT spent our time surfing the web for old cars, learning new swear words on urbandictionary, and causing mayhem in electric karts around the track at K1-speed (electric karts remove the inequalities associated with speed governors & clutch setup on arrive-and-drive gas karts and replace those with equally frustrating battery charge and depletion issues…but at least it doesn’t stink so much).  Anyway – it is time to pick the Commenter of the Week (COW!)!!

This commenter won our hearts with the following comment: “I was told once “never buy an X1/9 with rust in the windshield
surround.” Don’t remember why exactly, but I’ve heeded the advice so

Click thru the jump to see the winner:

 Congrats to DT reader Erich!  We would ammend Erich’s advice to “never buy an X1/9” but that is another story. Congrats to Erich and here is the prize – a photo of a Mazda RX-792P cresting the corkscrew at Laguna Seca. 

Edit 9/29/2012 7:55PM PST: We have previously and erroneously reported that Erich was indeed named Mike and said the following nasty stuff:  

…if you take a look
at his blogger profile – Mike started a few blogs in 2006 – one of them
the Casco Bay, Maine Boater’s Blog
which has a regular (repeated daily) posting about how to get rid of
Herpes HSV2 –  we think those Maine boaters must be really
promiscuous…or that site has been taken over by a hacker. 

We are assured that Erich is not named Mike and does not have HSV2 or any other kind of transmittable STDs.  -Ed
