While we're all hell-bent on the Way Forward 2.0 today, we thought you'd like a flashback episode entitled, "The Way We Were," or muttered under Bill Ford's breath, "Here's How We #*&)$ Got Here In The First Place."

This morning's Way Forward stuff hasn't said a whole lot about Jaguar, so we'll fill you in on the latest: the XKR is slap-your-momma good. But don't tell her we said so.

At the other end of the spectrum, here's a well-earned retirement, or two of them, from Scion. How many pro ballers hit a home run in their first at-bat?

TheCarConnection is so ready for the Paris auto show. How ready? Project Runway be damned, we're all wearing berets this week and at least one of us is serious about it.

Toyota is still expanding in the U.S., which makes us think of chemistry -- something about a gas expanding to fill its container. Hey, anybody have a Toyota-shaped container?
