So this was cool ... Thanks to +Dodge  for bringing this cool car to #MAMA15  
The Viper ARC was officially revealed last week at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit, but it was in front of the Midwest automotive media that Chad Seymour, brand manager for Viper, announced pricing would start at $117,895 for the Viper ARC and that order banks are now open.

OK ... So, what's your driving pet peeve?
The overwhelming theme of my driving pet peeves is inattentive drivers. If you are going to drive, drive. Everything else can wait.

a few of my favorite things ... 
 
cold weather must haves ... 
Even with the onset of spring, it's still easy to remember winter. So this week's raves focus on recent test cars that I totally appreciated when snow, ice and frigid cold came a’calling.

Anything that helps to keep teens safe is a good idea ... 
 
Cool tech alert! http://bit.ly/1bjXcHW #Chevrolet  
For the 2016 model year, Chevrolet is getting in the teenage safety game with the all-new Malibu and its Teen Driver system.

My new compulsion is finding these hidden gems.
Ever since I test drove the 2015 Jeep Renegade and discovered all the hidden “Easter eggs” designed into the interior and exterior of the vehicle, I’ve been obsessed with finding sneaky design elements in cars.

New review => http://bit.ly/1QQ2eve
Even though Ford insists on calling the TransitConnect passenger vehicle a wagon, the sliding rear doors, fold flat seats, creative cargo spaces and boxy shape tell a different story. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Who doesn't love the #TrunkMonkey? This is funny ...
I’ve been following the Trunk Monkey videos for almost a decade. And it always shocks me when I come across someone who isn’t familiar with them.

+Toyota USA calls bullsh*t ... 
 
Today's funny ... 
With a snarky but educational tone, the automaker works toward stamping out criticism of its fuel cell dreams.

Tough to drive in Chicago without a home charging station ... and in the winter. Brrrrr.
If you really do keep your daily drives in the 30- to 60-mile range, and you wouldn’t be adverse to purchasing a home charging station, the Leaf is a great little car that’s comfortable, easy to drive and simple to understand.

my review of the mazda mx-5. so ready for convertible weather!!
 
Our review of the 2015 +Mazda USA #MX5.
Sure there’s the Chevrolet Corvette and the Nissan 370Z, which are both fine vehicles. But when you get into the likes of affordable two-seaters, you’re looking at, well, a class of one: The Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Had a blast driving the new +Jeep #Renegade. Really impressed with #Trailhawk. 
The all-new Jeep Renegade is in a class of one. It’s a Janus-faced vehicle that is equal parts urban chic and off-road gruff.
