I am feeling better, though disappointed I couldn’t make the New York Auto Show. It’s the first show I’ve missed in five, maybe six years. But there is always next year (as long as the Mayans were wrong). Today’s highlights include Nissan’s New York City taxi, Infiniti’s electric sedan concept, and a 570 horsepower electric Protoscar.

A writer and gearhead who loves all things automotive, from hybrids to HEMIs, can be found wrenching or writing- or else, he's running, because he's one of those crazy people who gets enjoyment from running insane distances.
