The 2011 Earth Week Cruise-In
Ladies and gentlemen, start you engines! It's time once again for the Iowahawk eco-activism community to greet the gentle breezes of Spring, stomp the throttle and embrace the ultimate MILF: Mother Earth. Welcome to the 6th Annual Earth Week Cruise-In, where my readers proudly display how they get their carbon freak on, vehicular-wise; and not a moment too soon, judging by the snow I witnessed in Chicago yesterday. For the next 7 days I'll be frequently updating this post with entries, reverse chronological style, and I'm predicting we'll top last year's barn-burner.
Own a previously unfeatured CO2-spewer worthy of this showcase? send pics, YouTube links etc. and a pithy description to the email link on left with the subject line "2011 Earth Week" (deadline Saturday April 23). Onward into the carbon fog!
