Comment: Would love for you to track down who this belongs to and tell their story:

I don't know where this e-mail originated, but it took
some money to purchase this, paint it & haul it from
Montana to Alabama. My friend saw this on I-65 in
Birmingham AL a couple of weeks ago. The truck is
from Montana and they pulled alongside of it and gave
driver big thumbs up. He acknowledged us with a thumbs
up. Loved it!

Official Pace Car...

Of course it's someone with a lot of money. The poor people who need the care could never afford it. Or afford to be put in it from their lack of health care for that matter.

What makes that car "official"? Apart from having "official" painted onto it, I mean.

Small nitpick: it's not painted. It's quite a cheap sticker job made with a cutting plotter. The cost of the whole thing must not be over a few hundred bucks (including work), if it wasn't made for free by a fellow tea-bagger.

But of course, it's someone with loads of money, as seen by the giant SUV and the fancy trailer. Anyway - that guy's idiocy is as big as his car.
