In today's editon of the LA Times, Mr. Neil has channeled some tips for incoming Chrysler grand poobah Robert Nardelli through a review of the latest player in the long line of drop top Chrysler Sebrings. Nardelli's ability to tell the difference between a good car and a bad car might be what saves Chrysler from a world of hurts. According to Neil, the drop top is a bad car.

Not just bad, but a veritable chalice of wretchedness, a rattling, thumping, lolling tragedy of a car, a summary indictment of Chrysler's recent management and its self-eradicating product planning, all cast in plastic worthy of a Chinese water pistol.

We hope Nardelli can tell the difference between a hammer drill and a super soaker. [Top to Bottom via the LA Times]
