The 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China is finally here. I've been anticipating the parade for months now. The screaming jets, APVs with whitewall tires, the Dongfeng trucks performing acrobatics. They are all happening right now.
For weeks, the buzz has been that Hu Jintao would be riding in that monstrosity called the Hongqi HQD concept. Thankfully, someone nixed that idea. It appears that he is in a brand new, retro Hongqi CA770. I must admit it's quite elegant in a quaint and nostalgic kind of way. It even matches Hu's black Mao jacket.
