Neko Case Raffles Off “Cyclone” Auto


It’s for a good cause,
folks: “Mercury Cougar-Rama Muscle Car ‘Splosion


By Blurt Staff


Everyone’s favorite rock ‘n’ roll cougar (kidding!) Neko
Case is raffling off the ’67 Mercury Cougar that appeared on the sleeve of 2009’s
Middle Cyclone – and for a good
cause. Proceeds will go to Dave Eggers’ nonprofit group 826 National, which is
described at the 826 site as “a network of nine nonprofit organizations
dedicated to helping students, ages 6-18, with expository and creative writing…
826 is especially committed to supporting teachers, offering services and
resources for English language learners, and publishing student work.”


So check it out over at Neko’s website, and meanwhile, she
has posted a 4-minute clip to YouTube in which she talks about the whole deal
and shows off the car (plus some pals).
