"So," my co-worker Nancy said as I was packing up at the end of my editing shift yesterday, "what are your plans for New Year's Eve?" "Well," I said with a deliberate pause, "I'm having dinner tonight with five women." She looked up from her computer monitor and smiled. "I'm not even going to ask."

We all love a good Top 10 List so for New Year's Eve I wanted to highlight and reminisce on the top automotive stories of 2009.

Here's my little New Years toast for all mothers of teenage girls
May your smiles number many, your misfortunes remain few;
may total minutes stay within your family plan.

Let's hope your precious debit card, never once will leave your sight;
may all young suitors remain blissfully at bay.
