The Morning ShiftAll your daily car news in one convenient place. Isn't your time more important?   

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, we’re not doing any of that, because your hardworking Jalopnik staff is off today to barbecue, swim, relax, remember America’s war dead, and spend time with our terrible cars.

But we still have a day’s worth of new stories for you, so if you get bored, hopefully we can help a bit.

In the meantime: what car stuff are you doing today?
