Link Love From The Car Connection: Michael Jackson + Fast & Furious Send Cars To The Block, MTV Sends Reality Television To France

Miss Tuning 2009 Finalist -- Eileen from Dresden

Miss Tuning 2009 Finalist -- Eileen from Dresden

  • Auction block heads -- Love the Fast & Furious franchise? Well now you can take home a little something from the movies--and by "little something", we mean one of nine vehicles used in their making, including TCC's in-office fave, the "F-Bomb". (Mostly because we love dropping it so much.) [Edmunds]
  • Plastic surgery don't come cheap -- In less exciting sales news, Michael Jackson's auctioning off much of his Neverland Ranch booty (write the jokes yourselves, people). We never really pictured him as a Ford Econoline Van sort of guy--but then, these days we try to picture him as little as possible. [TopGear]
  • Be safe -- On a serious note: please remember that objects in your car--textbooks, tools, frozen oranges--can become deadly projectiles in an accident. As long as they're safe and secure, we'll always have you as readers. Um...right? [Engadget]
  • Mystery ladies -- We know about the Miss Tuning calendar, but who are these mysterious "2009 Miss Tuning Finalists"? Runners-up from last year? Competitors for the 2010 calendar? Does it matter? [WorldCarFans]
  • Continental pimpin' -- For those of you who really got off on the whole "Freedom Fry" idiocy, revel in this morsel: Pimp My Ride is going to France. Even weirder: the French are looking forward to it. But then, they dig Jerry Lewis. [LeBlogAuto; wonky and hilarious Google translation here]
  • Speaking of Fast & Furious -- Saturday Night Live isn't the grand slam comedy powerhouse it used to be, but every so often, they manage to hit a ground rule double. This clip is a couple of weeks old, but hey--what kind of people would we be, leaving you without video distractions on a Friday? [Hulu]:
