I’m a little bit of a car buff (that may come as a bit of a surprise to those who know about the Shaggin’ Wagon) and I occasionally read up on cars. A lot of auto writers pride themselves on being the first to drive a new car, first to give a full test to a car, first to get a photo of a new car.
On the other hand, the guys on Car Talk like to take the road less traveled. One of them owns a classic sports car, and his brother derides that car (along with his brother) on a regular basis. Now, on their web site, the knuckleheads gave a road test (as full as the car and the brothers could stand) to Tommy’s 1952 MG TD. And it’ BRUTAL.
