Lexus IS at Rockingham North CarolinaLexus launched its 2014 IS sports sedan at the notorious “Rock” (Rockingham Speedway) outside of Raleigh/ Durham, North Carolina. The track opened as a flat, one-mile oval in 1965. It has since changed its length, shape, and altitude and has hosted two NASCAR Cup Series races, last known as the Subway 400 (1966–2004) and a significant list of other races.  Used as the spot for movies and TV filming, the track is currently home to Fast Track High Performance Driving School and is utilized extensively for NASCAR testing.

Ford Wraps American Idol Season Sponsorship; Season 12 Winner Determined Tonight

American-Idol-Season-12-Finale-Kree-vs-CandiceWatching American Idol has been a family activity around my home for years. Each week, my son Ben and I would sit on the couch to watch (and sing along with) the weekly competition, and he often told me “Mom, YOU should try out for American Idol!” We watched pretty much every season -- including all the sponsored Ford music videos and commercials -- and always voted for our favorites.

Yep, I sure do! Ever get so busy you don't know what day of the week it is? Yep, I sure do! So here's the weekly American Idol post that was supposed to go up on Thursday, but didn't actually get onto AskPatty until today. Mea Culpa!

As part of each episode, the final American Idol finalists are competing in weekly  ‘Missions’ to complete some sort of fun competition that emphasizes their own personalities – so, things like singing, philanthropy, fashion, etc. This week's American Idol mission, "Music Design Mashup" divided the four finalists into two teams and gave each pair carte blanche to custom design their own 2014 Ford Fiesta.

JLO and FIAT - empowering or counterproductive?

420x316-alg_jlo_fiat "Jenny from the block" has a new licensing deal with FIAT, and is featuring her ner partner in an upcoming music video for her song "Papi."  Now, I'm not sure when the video will be released, or how (do any of the "music" channels still show videos?), but in the meantime, FIAT has a condensed, 30-second version of the video as a preview and television advertisement.  

Now, I certainly am not going to begrudge JLO her choice of brand partners, a girl's gotta eat, and according to FIAT, they're approaching their partnership with Lopez from an angle of empowerment: 

"[She] fits perfectly with the brand not because of who she is but because of what she is - authentic, passionate, modern and a fighter determined to stand out from the rest"

Sounds great, right?  Well, take a look at the 30-second spot after the jump, and then we'll talk.

Happy Flag Day, Ask Patty Nation!

Flags-colonial_17-76 Today is Flag Day, here in the States.  You may wonder what exactly that means - after all, the Fourth of July is traditionally celebrated as America's birthday.  Does our flag need a day of its own?  Well the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the Flag is believed to have first originated in 1885. A schoolteacher at a Wisconsin Public School decided, with his pupils, to observe June 14 (the anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes) as 'Flag Birthday'.  In numerous magazines and newspaper articles and public addresses over the following years, Cigrand continued to enthusiastically advocate the observance of June 14 as 'Flag Birthday', or 'Flag Day'.  Consequently, on June 14, 1891, the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia held a Flag Day celebration, and eventually Flag Day was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916.

Legendary Rocker Slash Auctions His 1966 Corvette Stingray for Charity

Stingray Slash is a rock icon, without a doubt.  I can't say I'd recognize his face if I saw it, because to be honest, I've only seen his face a handful of times, as it's usually lost behind his monumental hair, trademark top hat, and of course, the sunglasses.  Nonetheless, his recognizable mug was found on at least one tee shirt in my closet a few years back, and my copy of Guns 'n Roses debut album was a frequent spinner in my bedroom stereo.  But why am I blogging about the iconic guitarist on the Auto Advice for Women blog?  Well, his 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Sports Coupe, that's why. This amazing car, perfect for Slash's meticulously kept bad-boy rocker image, hits the auction block this month.  Yup, it's for sale - he's auctioning the thing for charity, so if you're a refugee of the hair metal years like a certain blogger I know, and if you have a few extra bucks lying around, this may be the chance of a lifetime.  Auction details after the jump.
