Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you can read instead of the words on the box of Cocoa Puffs for the eleven billionth time.
Buicks aren’t all boring, and they’re not just for the elderly. This youthful little kitten found one roomy enough to climb up in, and a local dealership had to pry the sweet thing out of there after the car’s owner—and other folks at stoplights—heard some loud meowing coming from somewhere near the wheel well.
A Belarusian military parade will have one less tank after this snafu. One 40-ton tank lost control during a practice run, sending it drifting into a light pole as if it was driven by That Guy leaving Cars and Coffee.
