Ah, cars. I have to admit that I love them. If I could, I'd have a garage of cars, including a 1939 roadster with a rumble seat.
Americans do have love affairs with cars, but sometimes, we're fickle. Writer Tom Wilson gives us a list of formerly hot, hot cars that now are definitely chilled.
Among them: the Hummer. Unless you're looking for a small war to tool through, I'm not sure why a Hummer was ever a great idea.
Good news for me though--the Ford Mustang remains, as always, on the "hot" list. That makes me want to get busy and get mine (bright red, of course) out of the garage. A thorough cleaning, a beauty makeover, and a bit of engine work too.
Definitely time for a winter project--get the hot wheels rolling again!
Hot when it first landed, thanks to a shift in the environmental winds the Hummer H2 is now the redneck's parade float.

In the automotive fashion cycle, some cars go from hero-to-zero faster than junior-high socialites.
