Read John Pearley Huffman's Last New York Times Review

I end up on the wrong side of critic John Pearly Huffman more often than not, likely giving him the impression that I don’t like him. I do like him. And it’s thus with a little melancholy and nothing but good will that I share his last review for The New York Timeslast because the paper is foolishly shuttering its Automobiles section.

Would you ever put a cast on a perfectly good leg? Of course you wouldn’t, because there is never a need to fix something that isn’t broken. The automotive representation of this useful saying is this damn near perfect 1986 Toyota Cressida that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Yours for less than the price of a used Honda Civic.

Here's Why The DOT's Baggage Numbers Mislead The Traveling Public

Yes, Anime Themed Cars Are Pretty Common In Japan

One of those facts about a Japanese commute which contributes to the "weird Japan" stereotype, there are a lot of anime themed cars. It can’t be helped. Why? Because it’s true. It’s not unusual to see one or two during rush hour, or a few scattered throughout a parking lot.
