The Week in Reverse: December 15, 2006

December 17, 2006

Question: it’s called the MINI Cabrio Sidewalk, so why won’t they let you drive it on one? Pedestrians, look out!

 

So, this is what happens when they don’t ask me to join in the voting. (If I were on the jury, we’d have also voted to impeach the Aztek for high crimes and misdemeanors.)

 

Today’s GM knows better. Design is the difference, Bob Lutz says. And finally, GM has proof of it. Bring on that Camaro Convertible!

 

TheCarConnection’s Doug Flint continues to amaze us with his writing talent and his political clear-sightedness. So when’s that new automatic in our Taurus going to be ready, huh?

 

All reports indicate 2007 will be a stinky year for new car sales, with just 16.2 million units moving off dealer lots. Our prediction: Detroit-area long-term parking lots will do a booming business.

 

Our publisher disappeared to Morocco and the last we heard, he was riding a camel. We hear they’re very happy together.

 

Some things need no explanation. So without further ado, we bring you Kissmobile.

 

All roads to New Orleans may be bumpy and badly maintained—but where else are you going to get smack-your-momma-good red beans and rice?

 

And finally this week, we’re not sure whether the drag-donning West Palm Beach cops are doing it to be annoying or just so they can feel fabulous for a day. Either way, we know a Payless store that specializes in plus-size pumps. Call us, ladies!
