My 13-year-old VW Jetta seems to be entering the phase of an automobile’s life where there’s never not something wrong with it. It’s been in and out of the repair shop pretty much constantly over the past few months, and lately it only starts on the first try when it feels like it. I’m determined… READ MORE »

After losing his virginity 45 years ago, Edward Smith of Yelm, Washington, knew that the way he felt about headlights and bumpers was the way most men felt about “boobs and buns.” Although he never forgot his first — a neighbor’s Volkswagon Beetle — the self-proclaimed mechaphile went on to sleep with thousands more automobiles… READ MORE »

The only people I know who own trucks are women. I know two female truck owners, but that’s not that exciting, because I don’t live a Truck Lifestyle. Perhaps Chevy, makers of the Silverado pick-up truck, have realized that they know a lot of female truck drivers, too, because they’ve created this ad (finally!) focused… READ MORE »

OK, I’ve put it off long enough. I haven’t seen my floor mats in months and the backseat is starting to look like the Death Star’s garbage compactor. I wouldn’t actually be that surprised if a giant cephalopod was living back there. If I ever gave Luke Skywalker a ride home from Jedi training he… READ MORE »

Oh, Europeans. Here’s a new commercial from Hyundai Netherlands for their Sante Fe vehicle. The ad is creepily called “Upskirt” and definitely pushes the boundaries of what you can do to sell cars here in the United States. The premise is about as unoriginal as any other car commercial: sexy ladies swooning over a new… READ MORE »

We haven’t heard from national treasure Gary Busey in a while, and that’s because he’s busy selling cars. I mean he’s REALLY SELLING CARS! At Century III Kia in West Mifflin. He’s YELLING ABOUT SELLING CARS! He’s MAKING IMPORTANT DEALS! That’s the Busey way, after all. [YouTube] … READ MORE »

“It’s only a matter of time until Malia gets her learner’s permit so I’m hoping to see one of those models that gets a top speed of 15 miles an hour and the ejector seat any time boys are in the car. So, hopefully you guys have some of those in the pipeline.”

Earlier today, The New York Daily News’ “Gatecrasher” column ran a story postulating that Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are having marital issues because they both lead such busy lives.
