    Don't you know companies kick back millions to Mortor Trend for the honor?

    BTW- I made that up.

    Come on Wry, you're losing your touch. :D

    The tree hugging libs don't care.
    It's what they want to hear. And that makes it the gospel.

    Big fat hairy deal.

    Past "winners" include...

    1960 Chevrolet Corvair
    1963 American Motors (AMC) Rambler (all models: American, Classic, and Ambassador)
    1971 Chevrolet Vega
    1972 Citroën SM (an imported vehicle that was selected overall "Car of the Year")
    1974 Ford Mustang II
    1978 Chrysler, Dodge Omni and Plymouth Horizon
    1980 Chevrolet Citation
    1981 Chrysler K Cars, Dodge Aries and Plymouth Reliant
    1983 AMC / Renault Alliance

    Though the list of crappy cars goes on and on, you get the idea.

    Pffffft.

    tbh, Tesla doesn't deserve it.

    It's like giving Lamborghini, McLaren, or Ferarri the award.




    1. That car cost waaay too much
    2. It only get so much mileage until the batteries are done
    3. Fire hazard/batteries are at HUGE risk of breaking


    It's nothing worthy of an award like this.

    An electric car that I can't afford and wouldn't get me across town if I could. What a shocker.

    You can bet the KY Jelly was flowing like water when the judges were deciding on car of the year. This is just another Oslo, Norway awarding Obama the Nobel Peace Prize decision for what he might do sometime in the future event. Some of you might be catching on that we're all living in some sort of "Alice In Wonderland" timewarp where what has been wrong for ages is now right, black has suddenly become white, up is now down....and the Obama fellatio crew just keeps rolling on.
