Journalist Flips Cadillac ATS In Crash 17 Miles From Race Track

"Let's keep the shiny side up" were nearly the last words from the GM employee responsible for the safety briefing ahead of a drive for journalists through the windy roads of Georgia. One writer for a buff book didn't take that advice seriously enough and rolled a brand new Cadillac ATS into the woods within a few… » 6/27/12 10:30am 6/27/12 10:30am

AOL's right hand meets its left hand, Huffington Post

On Friday we noted numerous media reports and a statement from AOL claiming Autoblog's littler brother AutoBlogGreen was being folded into its larger sibling — or just outright getting killed. AutoBlog "publisher" John Neff said we were wrong. Before Neff had even gone on the hard-nosed defense, we'd received a… » 3/27/11 9:40pm 3/27/11 9:40pm
