Everybody is going Olympic nuts

Since China was awarded the Olympic games, weve heard about it at least once a day for the past few years. Were not joking, if we had a dollar for everytime we heard about the 2008 Olympic games we would be trillion squillionaires, or something to that effect. Everything in the great Peoples Republic is being done with a goal of being completed before the 2008 Olympics buildings must be constructed, highways completed, hospitals built, Beijings middle aged cab drivers with high school education must all learn English!!!! Everyone is jumping on the Olympic bandwagon, even Volkswagen it seems with their MPV, theyve made an Olympic version for 2008, pictured left.

The coloring down the side is supposed to resemble the five Olympic rings, but to China Car Times it looks like a pack of kindergarten kids have gone wild with a box of Crayola crayons and this was the end result.

Ah well, were sure people will buy it anyway.


Ash came to China at 18 on a whim and never left. Some 10 years later he collected a degree and a family along the way and now focuses his time on watching the Chinese car industry develop. He has witnessed the market change from being minor backyard market in to the world’s biggest and most important market for all car manufacturers.
