TCC readers, we laud your taste: your favorite car review from January was also one of our favorite test cars in recent memory.

And yet you’re pessimistic on gas prices? Maybe you’ll cheer up now that the smart fortwo is on sale--even though the chances of getting lucky in the back seat are approaching zero.

Autocar magazine tells us there’s a new Rolls-Royce on the way. Since it’s based on the BMW 7-Series, does that mean the uppercrust’s cut off?

We also saw the next Lincoln MKZ and Saturn Aura, and we likey.

Isuzu finally admitted that it stopped selling cars in the U.S. back in 1998 and just forgot to tell anyone. (This part is not true.)

We got really bored one night and instead of writing a real review we wrote a fake one with a bunch of Journey songs in the title. Blame the minibar. Those craisins are dangerous!

Richard Simmons clocks in on Sunday as the least likely Super Bowl pitchman ever. Our satin shorts are at the cleaners, getting ready for the big day.
