I'm sorry, won't happen again, really, I swear
I was so busy writing for TheTruthAboutCars, that irrenverent site in America that was crazy enough to hire me as their (cheap, as in Chinese cheap) Man-In-China that I neglected my own blog. Which was promptly noticed by my only reader, Jennifer, who, by the way works for Gasgoo. It is Gasgoo where I turn to first in the morning to get the latest on Chinese cars. If Gasgoo complains, BS wakes up!
To make up for my past sins, here is a selection of articles recently posted at TheTruthAboutCars. They are written for an American readership, so please pardon the puns.
