Sweet-Ass Rides and Dead-Eyed Zombies: A Ride With Dan Neil

Hi, I'm Justin Hyde. You may remember me from such blog posts as "because racecar" and "Cobb Shifter: The Short-Throw Life Saver." I punch buttons for Yahoo Autos these days, and thanks to the magic of Kinja and the traffic yearnings of Matt Hardigree, I'm able to share some of our exploits with you. Like this trip… » 5/07/14 10:15am 5/07/14 10:15am

Clarkson on the Dodge Grand Caravan

Some of you may remember Dan Neil's rather glowing review of the new Chrysler Town & Country Limited. You know, the one where he proclaims that a smart, sensible baby haulin' minivan makes him a total DILF. Well, Jeremy Clarkson is having none of it. Clarkson hauls his wife and three daughters to the great city of… » 11/27/07 11:45am 11/27/07 11:45am
