Ford Flex: it’s like a huge MINI Clubman with enough Edge to make you forget the Freestar. Nevermind that Flex is also the name applied to a string of, urm, gentleman’s clubs. We’re exhausted from name-dropping now, thanks.

It’s the Impreza – wait, it’s the WRX, too! Wait, it’s supposed to be embargoed until the actual auto show. Those print magazines can’t even get a date right, can they?

We’re with Kia: screw New York, we’re staying at home and showing off our toys there.

Let’s see – he sued them, then ditched them, then took GM for a rollercoaster ride, now he wants to bid for Chrysler. Kirk Kerkorian, you are the proverbial fart in church.

Until a deal for Chrysler happens, Dieter Zetsche will stick to promises he can safely keep. Like all new DCX cars and trucks will have hybrid options. And like, he’s totally not going to grow out his hair and get a Rachel cut.

Okay, so we missed seeing Grindhouse this weekend. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones.
