Think you know everything about the 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid? Well...what flower's displayed on its green-o-meter? Our first drive knows. [GreenCarReports]

We're headed to the 2010 Paris Auto Show in two weeks, but here's a petit hors d'oeuvre in the form of the 2012 Chevrolet Aveo. [TheCarConnection]

We'll also get a look at the new Opel GTC in Paris, while we also take in the heady aroma of thousands of journalists in an unventilated room. [MotorAuthority]

Ferrari will pretty much do anything to win your business--right down to matching that shade of lipstick you'd rather not find on your dress-shirt collar. [SportsCarMonitor]

Everything you've ever heard about valet parking is true. In this case. It'll just make your heart sick. [TheCarConnection]

You could be paying 6 cents a gallon for gas, if you were part of Hugo Chavez' cult. Or you could pay ten bucks a gallon in Eritrea. It all makes South Carolina sound so appetizing. [GreenCarReports]

Which bits of car technology are important to your family--fun gadgets like SYNC and DVD players, or safety stuff like rearview cameras? [FamilyCarGuide, and also FamilyCarGuide]

Last up today: a loving restoration of a Mustang Shelby GT500CR. Just photos, just car ogling. Beautiful stuff. [MustangBlog]
