It's pretty clear to even the casual observer that the economy is in the tank. We've all seen the recent unemployment figures (the highest since 1993), not to mention the potential loss of three million jobs if the Detroit 3 go under. And what about the New York bankers, Orange County real estate agents and Silicon Valley venture capitalists? Well, here's one option: strapping a Domino's sign on the roof of your DB7 and slinging pizzas. Or maybe Domino's is bringing back 30 minutes or it's free promotion and they needed speedier rides.

      I hate to be the voice of the intertubes, but I call photoshop on this pic.
        • 6 Years Ago
        If that's a photoshop it's a damn good one. I doubt it. However, it could be a prank someone pulled on a friend or something like that.

      well at least this guy is working for the money and not asking for a bailout

      Not a joke... I saw it this afternoon while pumping gas. Here's a picture I took with my camera phone: http://s654.photobucket.com/albums/uu262/davidh_mauitoys/?action=view¤t=0303091554.jpg

      i would be embarrassed.

      if you can afford that car, you can afford a decent used car to deliver pizza's...
        • 6 Years Ago
        @Kumail
        Or at least, sell the car, buy a corvette, save the extra cash so you don't have to deliver pizzas.

      The domino's here in Maricopa has two brand new Audi A5's driving around... I can't help but laugh every time I see them out and about.
        • 6 Years Ago
        LOL! Really? I drive by the Domino's (the only one in the area) often since I live behind Frys and I haven't seen them yet.

      Stupid me, when I was 18 (1988) I delivered pizza in a '79 Fairmont.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Well there is a Pizza Hut guy who delivers pizzas in his CTS-V here.

      It could be possible.
        • 6 Years Ago
        He probably bought it used with that insane GM depreciation. :)

      The Deliverator's car has enough potential energy packed into its batteries to fire a pound of bacon into the Asteroid Belt. Unlike a bimbo box or a Burb beater, the Deliverator's car unloads that power through gaping, gleaming, polished sphincters... You want to talk contact patches? Your car's tires have tiny contact patches, talk to the asphalt in four places the size of your tongue. The Deliverator's car has big sticky tires with contact patches the size of a fat lady's thighs. The Deliverator is in touch with the road, starts like a bad day, stops on a peseta.

      As he scrunches to a stop, the electromechanical hatch on the flank of his car is already opening to reveal his empty pizza slots, the door clicking and folding back in on itself like the wing of a beetle. The slots are waiting. Waiting for hot pizza.

        Oh. My. God.

        I think that's the first time I've seen a Snow Crash reference on AB. Sweet.

        Hmm--yeah, this car does look like it could be the Deliverator's car :P

      No one show that to the Honda/BMW design teams. They are looking for yet another 'design element' to put on their cars and this might be it!

      • 6 Years Ago
      Does it matter at all!? I wouldn't care less if it was a private jet. It's a free world. People have the right to do whatever they want as long as they do what is right. I believe most people here would find it more acceptable that a drug dealer had that car rather than a guy who delivers pizza. I think it's a great way to promote the virtue of honest work.

        Slow news day that's all.
