With less than two months remaining on his term as vice president, Joe Biden appears to be preparing for life after Washington, D.C. On Saturday, Biden and his wife Jill were spotted car shopping in their hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.
Just after 1 p.m., the vice presidential motorcade pulled into Winner Audi. Eagle-eyed shopkeeper Frank Pagliaro of Frank’s Wine — next door to the car dealership — grabbed a couple of photos and posted them on his Facebook page. The Biden’s did not do any shopping at the wine store.
Pagliaro told TheBlaze, “The Secret Service asked if they could park their SUV’s in our lot.” When asked if he saw Biden take a car on a test drive, Pagliaro replied, “They didn’t drive. Jill and Joe rode with them (Secret Service) in the SUV caravan.”
This writer is a bit surprised Biden is considering purchasing an Audi. The vice president is frequently heard extolling the virtues of American automobiles, proudly talking about the classic 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray given to him by his father as a wedding present.
Biden showed off the ’67 Corvette on a recent episode of “Jay Leno’s Garage.”
