I wonder what kind of oil they have been using in the popemobile? Nevertheless, with the new Pope in office, they will probably switch to German Castrol!

He's German, and the climate in Italy is warm, maybe 40 or 50?

Since the new Pope is German, the oil must meet MB 229.5, VW 505.01 and BMW Long Life.... and its all paid for with the money that is in the collection baskets.... Wow. i'm going to **** now.

If that were true, his peers would have blown blue smoke to pick him instead of white. [Big Grin]

...or a VW Touareg. [Smile]  - VW Wants to Build Next "Pope-Mobile" As you may remember, Mercedes-Benz built a bulletproof parade vehicle(above ML pic) for Pope John Paul II's use later in his life. Now, following in Mercedes' tire treads, Volkswagen has expressed interest in building a "Pope-mobile" for newly minted Pope Benedict XVI, the former Cardinal Josef Ratzinger ofGermany. But there isn't much time to spare - the goal is to have the one-of-a-kind vehicle ready for the "Katholischen Weltjugendtag" (World Youth Day) in Köln (Cologne, Germany) this coming August. Sources close to Volkswagen tell our spy-shot network that if such a vehicle were commissioned, it would likely be based off of the Touareg. This photo-illustration - produced just outside of Wolfsburg hours after word started spreading about the new Popemobile - reflects the initial information and rumors circulating around Volkswagen's headquarters today. -Brenda Priddy & Company http://www.thecarconnection.com/Industry/Daily_Edition/Daily_Edition_Apr_22_2005.S173.A8501.html [ April 22, 2005, 12:53 AM: Message edited by: vwoom ]
