It would appear that someone at the New York Times reads MotoringFile and likes a good joke as much as the rest of us. This appeared in today’s NYT Drivetimes:

Hot Mini Goes Power Crazy (Auto Express)

And since the New York Time’s editorial staff seems to think our name should be Motoring File rather than MotoringFile, we’ll be changing the entire site immediately! …yes that’s sarcasm…

Thanks David!
