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.

Except not today, because it’s Thanksgiving. The Jalopnik staff is taking some well-earned time off with friends and family, like the people in that photo above. But we have a day of hits from the archive and some new stuff in store for you, in case you need to check out when your uncle starts talking about the electoral college again.

What’s on your agenda today? Anything car-related? Stay safe and have a great holiday.
