stupid little me thought of the "car spotting" section on ParisVienne.com too late - I should have started taking images of automobilistic gems in California where the most beautiful, impressive cars can be found virtually on every corner. Well, at least I brought back this image of a VW...

me was that I learned the alphabet by reading and incessantly checking car brands (that's actually what I'm inclined to believe until today, even though there is a faint chance my great-aunt consciously taught me to read little by little and I forgot all about it). So, in a way, it was maybe...

The test car that Lincoln provided for the weekend was very handsome with crisp lines and an athletic stance. The MKX is longer, lower and wider than its sister car, the Ford Edge and reaches levels of luxury, comfort and performance that put it squarely in the class of the Lexus RX, Audi Q5...

Travolta and Newton-John recalling their Grease roles by wearing black and driving a 1950s car (a Ford Thunderbird, in this case). Newton-John says, 'My desire was to make This Christmas an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy. Gathering around the house listening to...

Et, inutile de le dire, la voiture elle-même évoquait tout de suite maints souvenirs de mon enfance car c'était bien pendant ces années-là qu'on la voyait partout (et, si je me souviens bien, je ne l'aimais pas trop à l'époque) ... ... l'altro giorno, quando mi mossi attraverso il 7°...

the history of the Talbot car brand (initially a synonym for luxurious sportscars) was a rather shaken one, and at its end came the car model Samba constructed and marketed by Peugeot in the late 70s and early 80s. Talbot itself ceased to exist in 1986, and so did the Samba, naturally. One a...

× Sorry for the editorializing, but we hope Tom Ford sues the ass off the used car dealership who borrowed his likeness to sell a bunch of dumb used cars. Mr. Ford's tres steamy image is used with the copy, "You know you're not the first. But do you really care?" Um, yes, Dale Wurfel, we do....
