So, we don't cover the auto beat around here that much, and during a few weeks when the whole auto journalism world is in Detroit for the North American International Auto Show, it's hard to really offer much new. But we do like to gauge what stories emerge from that cloistered auto world into the larger cultural one, and it looks like the GT is it, if you use Girls and the readership of Gawker as a barometer of cultural relevance.
