While I am a bit of a car nut, I don’t often post about cars here. Need to fix that.
So here are a few car sites I’ve discovered recently that are worth reading:
- Behind the Wheel – Mark Tapscott’s blog at Examiner.com
- Carnival of Cars – A weekly link dump of cool stuff around the ‘net.
- The Truth About Cars – kinda self-explanatory, isn’t it?
- Jalopnik – As they say, “Obsessed With The Cult Of Cars”
As an example of why they are worth reading, check out this review about the Mercury Montego:
In short, the Montego is a fine car for buyers seeking an unassuming full-size sedan that’s a tiny bit more exclusive and sparkly than a Ford Five Hundred, for around $825 more (base to base). Too bad this niche exists only in the world of product planners and flak-talking spin-doctors. Everyone else flocks to well-established import sedans or “real” American cars like the Grand Marquis. In fact, Mercury’s royal sweetheart sports a competitive sticker price and frequently triples the Montego’s monthly sales numbers. Oops.
Poor product-planning at Ford? Delivering cars that few people want? Shocking!
