The Week in Reverse

Ford Flex: it’s like a huge MINI Clubman with enough Edge to make you forget the Freestar. Nevermind that Flex is also the name applied to a string of, urm, gentleman’s clubs. We’re exhausted from name-dropping now, thanks.

It’s the Impreza – wait, it’s the WRX, too! Wait, it’s supposed to be embargoed until the actual auto show. Those print magazines can’t even get a date right, can they?

We’re with Kia: screw New York, we’re staying at home and showing off our toys there.

Let’s see – he sued them, then ditched them, then took GM for a rollercoaster ride, now he wants to bid for Chrysler. Kirk Kerkorian, you are the proverbial fart in church.

Until a deal for Chrysler happens, Dieter Zetsche will stick to promises he can safely keep. Like all new DCX cars and trucks will have hybrid options. And like, he’s totally not going to grow out his hair and get a Rachel cut.

Okay, so we missed seeing Grindhouse this weekend. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones.

The Supreme Court says the EPA has to put rules on carbon dioxide emissions. Our question: since when did John Paul Stevens get to pretend he’s a climatologist? I mean, even Roberts held his water on that one.

Half of you believe global warming is caused by man, Another half believe it’s other causes. And a very tiny slice of you believe Don King is somehow involved.

And finally this week, it’s your chance to be the Hoff for Halloween. Buy KITT and you can B-list around the globe as Michael Knight! And then you can be cancelled.

  1. So the Ford Flex is like a huge MinivCkubman? And what is so great about the Mini, anyway? If anything, the Flex resembles its Range Rover cousins in appearance.

    Chrysler should be bought by another car company, one that actually has cars in a price range just above or below the prices of core Chrysler products for a cleaner fit.
