There’s something you don’t know about me, and I think it’s time I come clean.
I’m into hatchbacks and wagons.  Like really into them.  Like into them so much that I bought a Jetta Sportwagen TDI (diesel, motherfucker) a few months ago.
But this.
This is the Mercedes-Benz A-Class concept that will debut at the New York Auto Show a few days from now.
And this is something I’d like to have intimate relations with.

C’était un rendez-vous:

C’était un rendez-vous ("It was a date") is a short film made in 1976 by Claude Lelouch, showing a high speed drive through Paris. The film shows an eight-minute drive through Paris in the early hours of the morning, accompanied by sounds of a high-reving engine, gear changes and squealing tires. It starts in a tunnel of the Paris Périphérique at Porte Dauphine, with an onboard view from an unseen car exiting up on a ramp to Avenue Foch. Well-known landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe, Opéra Garnier, and Place de la Concorde with its obelisk are passed, as well as the Champs-Élysées. Pedestrians are passed, pigeons sitting on the streets are scattered, red lights are ignored, one-way streets are driven up the wrong way, center lines are crossed, the car drives on the sidewalk to avoid a garbage truck. The car is never seen as the camera seems to be attached below the front bumper (judging from the relative positions of other cars, the visible headlight beam and the final shot when the car is parked in front of a curb on Montmartre, with the famous Sacré Cœur Basilica behind, and out of shot). Here, the driver gets out and embraces a young blonde woman as bells ring in the background, with the famous backdrop of Paris.

If you’ve never seen this, I think it’s worth 9 minutes of your time.

Want a new car, but also want an AK-47? Head to Max Motors in Butler, Missouri, where with any new car purchase you’ll receive a voucher good for $450 to spend at a local gun shop.

Is “Want a new car, but also want an AK-47?” the best opening sentence to a blog post ever? Probably.

Just kidding about that Nissan GT-R.
This is what I really want — a VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI.
I’m weird.

Now, I read the other day that critics of this plan ridiculed our notion that we should use part of the money to modernize the entire fleet of federal vehicles to take advantage of state of the art fuel efficiency. This is what they call pork. You know the truth. It will not only save the government significant money over time, it will not only create manufacturing jobs for folks who are making these cars, it will set a standard for private industry to match. And so when you hear these attacks deriding something of such obvious importance as this, you have to ask yourself — are these folks serious? Is it any wonder that we haven’t had a real energy policy in this country?

I’m not sure, but I think Jason Statham just made me want an Audi.

Dubai says, “What recession?”

President-Elect Obama has to say to them, yes, we’re going to use this money to save these jobs, but we’re not going to build these gas-guzzling, unsafe vehicles any longer. We’re going to put the companies into some sort of receivership and we, the government, are going to hold the reigns on these companies. They’re to build mass transit. They’re to build hybrid cars. They’re to build cars that use little or no gasoline.
