As always, it’s been a busy week here in The Garage. Last week, we promised details on our first contest and we released details of our Spring Cleaning Contest. The idea is for all you reader to show us your messy garage. Readers will vote for the messiest garage and the winner will receive a sweet prize! There is an extra bonus for all you bloggers. Show us your garage and we’ll include a link back to you. So enough contest news for now, let’s get on with our read around the blogosphere.
It seems that every weekend we have a mini controversy of some sort happening in the NASCAR circus. Brian from RaceDriven has a few things to say about last week’s shenanigans. What do you think? Should JG have done his little DE tribute?
Over at HoustonCars, Leroy is still hard at work creating his vision of Chrysler’s ultimate product lineup. I still think he’s got the T&C vs Caravan solution backwards, but then again Chrysler needs the sales more than Dodge does. Do they even make the Pacifica anymore?
You just wait folks, Frank’s little girl Belinda is gonna straighten out the house of Mopar when she takes the helm!
Over at Classical Drives, Phil manages to showcase some of most magnificent rolling art we’ve ever seen. Sometimes he even surprises me with the odd car that I’ve never heard of. This week he’s got the 1938 Darracq/Talbot Lago T150C Convertible. I’ve heard of Talbot Lago of course, but Darracq? As you might think, the car is stunning and Phil has a history lesson for us.
Over at DrivingEnthusiast, Jeff has zoomed in on a few details of the Evo X press release from earlier this week. And yes Jeff, these are indeed show car or prototype images. You may even be right that this was a release for the sake of publishing a release as there really wasn’t anything new here.
Over at Full Throttle, maybe the most exciting news is the sexy ass new header image! Damn that picture is hot! Not only is the place looking hot, but Marc is going all social commentary on us. Reacting to the question is NASCAR losing it’s roots Marc has put on his thinking cap a written a piece worthy of a Poli Sci degree. Nice job.
It has been said that you can’t legislate common sense, but in reality you can go in the right direction. It amazes me that in some places car insurance is optional. Apparently that is the case in Oz, where Craig tells the tale of a friend who was almost caught out without insurance. What the hell are the lawmakers thinking down under.
That’s it for this week folks. Be sure to come back next week for the next edition of the Carnival of Wheels. Bloggers can submit their posts here.
Don’t forget to Show Us Your Garage!
