This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that's actually important — all in one place at 9:00 AM. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn't your time more important?
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.
If you’re into numerology then you might find it interesting that the E34 was the last M5 to carry a 6 cylinder engine. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 1991 has had its S38 replaced, and we’re going to see if its most important number - its price - makes this Five the one for you.
After giving us the Kuga (which is pretty much the same as America's Escape), Ford is sending another SUV to the old continent. The EcoSport is a compact aimed against competitors like the Opel Mokka (Buick Encore) or the Nissan Juke.
Over 25 years ago, one fine gentleman passed another fine gentleman a jar of Grey Poupon. But it seems that wasn't the whole story. Apparently, that old ad didn't actually end with "But of course."

Danger is one of the most defining aspects of motorsports. It’s been that way since the first “motoring contests” of the late 1800s, and it’s probably going to be true forever. The very fact that it involves huge, metal projectiles being driven around a course at high speeds while people stand around and watch means…
Last weekend, Danica Patrick made NASCAR history by becoming the first woman to secure the pole position for the Daytona 500. Today, she did it again at the race itself.
There are so many puns I could make right now. But in all seriousness, a Brit by the name of Martin Bacon has made a Ford P100 pick-up (a Ford Sierra with a truck bed, for those who don’t know) the Guinness World Record holder for fastest coffee-powered vehicle.

Think about it this way - We have NO CHOICE but for Danica to succeed. And it IS 'for the kids'. This line from a NY Times story says it all - "The young daughters of the veteran drivers Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards all wanted to meet Patrick."
