2010 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
Chevrolet gave us the first peep at the 2010 Camaro Convertible
. It's admittedly low-resolution, but hey--they need to have something to wake us up at the Detroit Auto Show after the inevitable Volt dog-and-pony show.
It's Father's Day--if your dad's still around, make sure he gets into these eight cars
while he's still able. He might even put you in the will if you can arrange number two.
In the meantime, drool over the hotness of the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V
, which GM says will launch your American ass to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. Want something faster? We hear the Space Shuttle's back in town.
The verdict is in on the 2009 Ford Flex
: TheCarConnection.com likes it a lot, so does the rest of the automotive press, and its name doesn't even make us want to pun on its body structure.
While BMW's "GINA" concept
makes us want to yell out in our finest Longuyland accent--"Hey, Gina
!"--it's a little esoteric to explain. Let's just call it a glider-like, shape-changing thingy and leave it at that.
We spied the 2011 Chevrolet Cobalt
in all its black-and-white finery, but are getting a little tired of the new version of car camouflage. If we can make a Tahoe get 20 mpg, where's the cloak of invisibility, already?
This week in new reviews: we dive deep into the 2009 Hyundai Genesis
, 2008 Toyota Prius
and 2008 Volvo S80
, and come up for air with the new Audi A4 and Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. Can you smell the excitement, or should we see a doctor?
We debunked some gas-pumping myths
with the help of the AAA. With the help of AA, we actually finished the story itself, slept in our own bed, and apologized to the people who had to listen to our rendition of "Back in Black" at 4 a.m.
Last item this week: Alanis Morissette has hooked up with Mercedes-Benz
, proving again the old math equation that celebrity+handlers=access to hot wheels. How does that explain our TCC driveway? Unrelated, and you really don't want to know.
