Link Love From The Car Connection: Audi Outraces Bugatti, Cash-For-Clunkers Rears Its Head, And A Look Back At The Top 50 Car Ads

June 2, 2009

♦  GM goes bankrupt, Susan Boyle loses a talent show, and a biogas-huffing Audi A4 (to your left) outraces a Bugatti? The 21st century is a strange and scary place. [Wired]

♦  Even the New York Times has gotten a little weepy over General Motors' fate. Check out their slideshow of reader photos of GM cars from yesteryear. And somebody cue up the Streisand. [NYTimes]

♦  Love the sound of turbocharging, but hate all that extra performance? Why not shove Turbo Whistler up your car's back end? Better yet, install it on your neighbor's car and see how long it takes him to figure out where that dang blasted noise is coming from. [AutoMotto]

♦  Yes, Virginia, "Cash-for-Clunkers" is in the news again. We'll believe it when we see it. [CNN]

♦  Even non-car people are talking about autos this week, so some folks have been kind enough to compile a list of the top 50 car commercials ever. We probably would've shuffled things around--and Howie Long would've been left in the dustbin--but hey, 50 video clips is a great way to waste time. Here are a few spots you might've missed.
