- Autoblog is likely the most comprehensive automotive news source online. Unlike many automotive blogs, they don’t just post enthusiast news, because every car has its enthusiasts. Except for the Chevy Captiva. Yeah, you forgot that one existed, didn’t you?

- When it comes to car manufacturers, nobody trades spots for the biggest one with Toyota like good ol’ GM. Yes, they brought us the Chevy Captiva (you’d already forgotten again, hadn’t you?), but they also build the Camaro, the Silverado, and one of the most successful sports cars ever engineered, the Corvette. Now if we can only get them to turn that cool new Caprice into an El Camino…

- What has two thumbs and just won Talladega? This guy. Er…that guy. Yeah, it’s kindof tough to point at NASCAR driver Jamie McMurray with both of my thumbs. But it apparently isn’t so tough for him to win races. Nice work, Jamie!

- This is the best television show in the history of the universe. If you’re not watching Top Gear, you’d better have a pretty good excuse. Put the most disinterested, bored, public transit-addicted, environmentalist, millennial college bro in a room with a full season of Top Gear, and he’ll come out spitting horsepower figures and jonesing for a v12 Ferrari. As a film enthusiast, I was first drawn to Top Gear because it was so beautifully shot and edited. It looked like a Ridley Scott film. Then I realized that the trio of middle-aged British presenters, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, were the perfectly volatile combination of personalities to create a chain reaction and a comedy mushroom cloud. Follow Top Gear, folks. You won’t regret it.

Andy Sheehan is a blogger, aspiring novelist, and relentless hoon. He plans to will his 2002 Subaru WRX Wagon to his firstborn, plans his daily commute around the swoop of its roads, and doesn’t plan to ever buy an automatic. A cool-car omnipath, he loves the common Mustang or Chevelle, but hunts for the weird and wonderful Velorexes and Cosmos of the autoverse. And when he can afford a garage, he’s going to turn an MX-5 into a race car.
