Link Love From The Car Connection: Friday Edition

January 9, 2009

Here are a few extra bits of auto-related goodness to get you through the weekend:

  • Give 'em some love: Consumer Reports has revealed that the best-loved brands among car-buyers are Toyota, Honda, and Ford. At the bottom? Suzuki, Mazda, Saab, and Hummer. Maybe next year.   [Autoweek]
  • Outrageous roads: Believe it or not, the world boasts scarier roadways than those found in LA. Who knew? [DarkRoastedBlend]
  • Cars by kids, not for kids: Remember when we told you about those high school kids in California developing a car powered in part by the wind? Well, there are more details circulating--including a drop date for the prototype. That's one reason to look forward to August. [WorldCarFans]
  • Forward-looking car competition flooded: The current state of the auto industry may be a little bloodstained, but the glut of submissions to the "Design the Car of the Future" competition could mean a very rosy future. [PressPortal]
  • Hyundai goes high-tech: Ford isn't the only automaker at CES. Hyundai is showing off loads of new toys, including gadgets that can find open parking spaces in crowded parking lots and receive mobile high-def video at 180 mph. Because you haven't really lived until you've watched Speed while hurtling down the autobahn. [Edmunds]
