I was going to blog about sex in cars. In my CRAZY and LOOSE books there is a lot of sex in cars. I remember reading an online comment one time where a reader complained about “Geez, her characters are having sex in another car, always with the sex in the cars!” and at the time, I thought it was a topic that needed addressing.

In one instance, they did more than balk. By refusing to insure the cars, they actually shut down production on Don Yenko’s 1969 Chevy Yenko “SYC 427” Novas. Yenko converted thirty stock SS-396 Novas into the barely street legal monsters, before the insurance companies got cold feet. Marrying that much power to something as relatively…
