The influence of African Americans and other minorities on the US car scene has been all kinds of wonderful. "Urban culture" has saved at least one venerable marque (Bentley), revitalized another (Chrysler 300C) and forced all manufacturers to raise their game. To their credit, carmakers have been quick to invite members of the minority-oriented media into the tent. One such outfit, automotiverhythms.com, has taken full advantage of the opportunity. Unfortunately, they're playing the game old style: junketeering like crazy, drooling like mad and avoiding hard-edged criticism. Their review of the Audi A6 is a good case in point. Still, Automotive Rhythm's energy, passion and dedication is a most welcome addition to the scene.
