Is GM really working on a Camaro hybrid? One reader told us, in essence, no f-ing way, he "called and asked." Well, geez, who'd you call? The receptionist? We have better sources, dude.

That sound emanating from the Dodge Challenger stand at the Chicago auto show? Not a HEMI, but the sound of an era ending prematurely, we think.

The YES! Roadster: is it smarter than a Lotus? Would the NO? roadster be something from International?

GM will have to pay to get the Volt in your driveway. Why don't they ever do this for the ZR1s of the world? Don't they want us to be happy?

Yes, the Denali XT looked cool - but are we really ready for more Caballeros to cross our borders, legally or not?

Toyota watches its profits fall. Prophets falling? We're still waiting for Huckabee to leave the race.

Consumer Reports laid some love on the CTS, saying it's better than a BMW or a Benz. We think it's also better than a kick in the ass, but our standards are notably lower.

The Simpsons sell out! Spider-Pig is on loan to Renault to promote the Kangoo, which actually looks kind of like Homer in the grille. You kind of have to squint a little, but it's there.

Cadillac auctions a CTS signed by Aretha before the Grammys today, but there’s no truth to the rumor that the winning Cadillac will be hidden in Amy Winehouse’s beehive until the show starts.

And finally this week, which would you rather take on a family vacation: VW's Routan or Susan Ruttan? The VW has a navigation system, but we hear Roxie's pretty good with a map.
