The 2009 World Car of the Year jurors must be senile. Firstly, there is no American car in site…… yes you are sure to find the same men sitting around a pub table with half full glasses of warm beer mocking the “Yanks” for calling their sporting events “The World Series”.
Just imagine, those old men then deciding which car they want as “the last new car before they retire” …………… and yes they decided on a Golf that looks the same as the last Golf. You recon they got a discount? Then they decided to give it the prize for car of the year in the hope that this would allow it to hold it’s value enough before they had to sell it to get the deposit for the white Camry that they want to drive for the rest of their lives.. A Fiat 500, that Noddy and Big Ears would’ve been VERY happy driving, won the prize for Design….. who on earth buys a car because it won a design award given by several men with dentures……
…… the Honda FCX may be greenest, but who wants to bet against me that Honda will only sell three of them ……… it is UGLY…… you are REALLY going to have to be a SERIOUS “earth child” to get past that body…….. and if it is anything like the Prius, you’re not really saving the planet, only changing where the greenhouse gases you’re responsible for are emitted. The only one that actually deserved it’s prize was the Nissan GT-R… and according to reviews I’ve seen, even that has been described as a bit of a “digital camera”… well, but lacks passion……. However….. do keep in mind that these comments come from men that want motor vehicles to “rummage around in their trousers”, wear shirts that look like they were made from their mothers nighty and voluntarily own Land Rovers and Volvos. And you have to wonder how much it’s going to cost you when that custom engine and gearbox break….. yes no two engines or gearboxes on a GT-R are the same……..don’t suppose the parts department at your local dealership will have spares readily available after a failed night posing as Fast n Furious…….. Needless to say, the GT-R won performance car of the year…  What I wouldn’t give for a day with that Nissan badge strapped to my back and an open road.
