General-interest automotive talk and opinion

We cover the major EV announcements this past week by both Mitsubishi (the i MiEV) and Renault-Nissan, take a look at the latest version of one of the original Asian SUVs sold in the US, the 2009 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4x4 ($39K, 16 mpg fuel economy average) and tell you more about Nat King Cole and his hit, Route 66, than anyone has a right to know.

Reminder - Next week is the 35th annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (CA), the world's second-heaviest attended and viewed motorsports event (behind only the Indy 500) and we'll be there on-the-scene covering the events live all weekend on our Huff Post and other blogs and live WebRadio shows on Saturday and Sunday, April 18 and 19, beginning at 5pm Pacific time both days. Special guests, your phone calls and comments and plenty of surprises ... so join us LIVE!
