Art car -- When U.K. artist Sara Watson got her hands on a Skoda Fabia, she did exactly what many others in her position would've done: she made it disappear. [BBC via JV]

In theory -- Long before Iran joined someone's Axis of Evil, the country formerly known as Persia gave the world a lot of nifty things (not just rugs). That trend continued at a concept car show called "From Dream to Reality", which yielded a pretty stylin' Audi D7 concept. Well, except for that Dubai-style neon draped all over it. [AutoMotto]

Role model -- Think you're obsessive about your car? Chances are, you've got nothing on gearhead and lifelong tinkerer Richard Fuchs, who's driven over 600,000 miles on his 1971 Ford Mustang--and he's logged every one of them. [NYTimes]

Survey says -- Good news: almost 60% of Americans say that the current bailout/bankruptcy bonanza "will have no impact on whether or not their next car purchase will be an American car". Bad news (for Detroit):no word on whether their next car purchase will actually be an American car. [PRnewswire]

Best day ever -- You've got two reasons to celebrate today: (a) it's Cinco de Mayo, and (b) Knight Rider has been canceled. Again. With a vengeance. [Autoblog]

Maybe we're psychic -- No sooner did we mention Nicholas Cage and conspiracy films than we heard he was shooting in Times Square. As if that weren't bad enough, during a car chase scene, one of the stunt drivers ran a Ferrari into a Sbarro. Watch and see why car fans and calzone addicts are in mourning. (FYI: the friendly but clueless-about-new-media peeps at the NY Post refuse to embed their video while simultaneously hammering away at illegal uploads of it. If the clip below is disabled, you can find the original on the Post's YouTube page.) [YouTube]
