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 need to know.

Actually, the only important story you really need to know is that it’s the Memorial Day holiday here in the U.S. As such, your hardworking Jalopnik staff is on limited duty so we can spend time with our beloved friends, family and project cars. Plus, no one is reading the internet today anyway.

But! If you are, we still have you covered with a day of new posts for your amusement. Please enjoy them and remember the sacrifices made by those who make your soft, Netflix-addicted life possible.
