Facebook Picture Of Cars Spurs Reunion Talk, Paulina Porizkova Web Searches

    A picture posted on the Cars’ Facebook page has some shaking their heads that the band is present on a social networking site, others checking to see whether Ichabod Crane-like front man Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova eventually came to resemble each other after twenty years of marriage, and a dedicated few popping collars and feathering their hair in preparation for some new tunes. The band has downplayed all the talk, not saying whether they are recording new material for the first time since 1987’s Door to Door, working on an Ocasek solo album, or just “fooling around.” On bass in the picture is keyboardist Greg Hawkes, as original bassist Benjamin Orr died of cancer in 2000.
