The Week in Reverse

February 19, 2006

Thank you Volkswagen, for making our life easy by naming concepts for letters. It's like the Electric Company meets Wolfsburg: we've had Concept R, Concept C, and now Concept A. The PBS types would be all over you for putting them in reverse alphabetical order, but our car-addled brains love your simplicity. Now can we talk more about Phaeton and Touareg?

Generous Motors is a thing of the past, our Joe Szczesny writes. Things are so bad at the Renaissance Center, GM even asked him to give one of his consonants back.

Ford says its market share will continue to slide before it stabilizes. Apparently, the Way Forward also includes some side-to-side jiggling and possibly, liquefaction. And who said the domestics don't know California?

It probably goes without saying that if you need a loan in Detroit, Auburn Hills is the place to go. Also, if you need a pickup truck, we hear they have a lot of them on hand.

Our recent TCConfidential tiff here of late with another writer certainly spurred some interesting comments. It shook us so badly we had to make a few phonecalls and line up free trips to more exotic places just to get over the hazing. (Editor's note: insert sarcasm here.)

So, real women drive Bimmer wagons and VW convertibles and such? Then how come Shannen Doherty was in a Range Rover when she went off-roading unexpectedly? (P.S. Knowing she's a Memphian and a Republican only makes us love her more. You go, Brenda Walsh!)
