Washington wants a new Car Czar.


Probably a very good idea, so long as it's somebody who actually has velocity as a goal. I'd personally be happy to see Mulally be anointed King of Detroit and let him steer the new transformer car. But that's far too much creative destruction for others at the table right now, I'm sure.

At any rate, I can't say the term "Car Czar" without chuckling and imagining the Czars' cars of old. Would be fun to mark this transition with a street art project. Certainly have all the components of a bizarre mashup: the marques, the personalities, the emergency rescue, the out of control driving.

This really should be fun to watch unfold. I just wish so many jobs and lives weren't at stake. Let's hope the new Car Czar knows how to heel-toe and isn't afraid to induce a little trail braking oversteer to get through.
