Jill + Harlem Globetrotters = Thanksgiving Parade

Jill + Harlem Globetrotters = Thanksgiving Parade
Well, since I didn’t crash last year, they actually asked me back. This year, I’ll be driving a Jeep Wrangler in the McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade with the Harlem Globetrotters. Is it just me, or is that going to make for a hilarious photo? And believe me, one (or several) will be posted. Chrysler Group will... Read more »

Photo gallery: 2012 Dodge Durango

I love the bold cross-hair grille on the Dodge Durango.
The Dodge Durango is a tough one for me. While I wouldn’t say this is a city-worthy vehicle. I wouldn’t say it isn’t exactly not a city vehicle either. Enough double negatives for you? I guess what I’m trying to say is: I would rarely recommend a vehicle this large for living in an urban... Read more »

Photo gallery: 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer

While I can’t admit to loving the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer, I can’t say I hate it either. In fact, I think the exterior styling on this vehicle is really well done. Better than a lot of vehicles on the road. It looks like a much pricier vehicle, certainly not a vehicle that has a base... Read more »

Today's Rant: Ride and handling in the Dodge Charger

Today's Rant: Ride and handling in the Dodge Charger
Let me start by saying, I really liked the Dodge Charger overall. I like the looks and the comfortable driver’s seat. And I’m a huge fan of the V-6 Pentastar engine mated to the 8-speed automatic transmission. Which is why I am really disappointed by the ride and handling. Simply stated, it drives like a...

2013 Dodge Dart preview on WNWO

So, I wasn’t really in San Antonio. And, well, the car got lost before the interview. Sigh. I suppose, even the best laid plans go awry, but all things considered, for a live Skype on the streets of Austin, Texas,  at 4.30 a.m. … I didn’t think this went too badly! Dodge launched the all-new... Read more »

Dodge Dart, Acura NSX: 2 cars to watch launched at NAIAS

Yesterday, I had the chance to chat with a TV station in Toledo, Ohio, about a couple of the cool cars launched this week at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. One is practical (2012 Dodge Dart), and one is pie in the sky (Acura NSX Concept). I can’t wait to drive both!... Read more »

Guess who's driving a float in the Thanksgiving Day Parade?

Guess who's driving a float in the Thanksgiving Day Parade?
Yep. That would be me. I have to admit that I’m a little bit nervous, and I’m imagining all the things that could go wrong. Read: That I could do wrong. But if I’m honest, I’m more excited than nervous. And I’ve been telling everyone, loudly, that I GET TO DRIVE A FLOAT DURING THE... Read more »

Meet @GirlintheTrunk

Meet @GirlintheTrunk
It started as a joke. When I worked for the other media company in town, I used to do video car reviews. And, at one point I did a review of the Corvette ZO6, goggling over the sheer size of the trunk space. Unusual in a 2-seater. So, I mentioned to my videographer that we... Read more »

Drive a Dodge at the Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon Expo

2011 Dodge Charger The Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon rolls into town this Sunday, Aug. 14. Which, for me, brings the best part of any big run in Chicago: the packet pickup at the Expo. So many vendors, so little time. But the one thing you must be sure to see is the Dodge Ride-n-Drive area, where... Read more »

Today's Rave: Dodge Grand Caravan nav images

At first I thought the sprawl of white streets on the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan navigation system was a bit intimidating. But once I actually engaged the system and it gave me directions, it was a different story. The level of detail was phenomenal — from the arrows directing you to the lanes you should... Read more »
