The raise-the-roof reverie continues inside the Torrent's urban-but-not-intimidating interior. Yes, you've seen this GM dash frame before and turned away in not so mock horror. But the Torrent's two-toned color scheme, chrome accents, and cool orange glow lift the cabin beyond the cookie-cutter Sunfires of days gone by. Major controls (e.g. the round, user-friendly climate selection knobs) are well-spaced and Spock logical. The rectangular interior door handles nestle within black circles are rimmed with chrome, contrasting boldly with the tan leather lingering underneath. This is deft, Germanic-level pattern manipulation. Ich applaudiere.
But this is the season that stood baseball on its head. First, the Angels beat the Yankees. Then they overcame the momentum of a Minnesota Twins team that was free from talk of contraction. Finally, they toppled the Tao of Barry and banished the Game 5 image of Giants batboy Darren Baker the manager's son being nearly flattened at home plate amid a torrent of runs. 2b1af7f3a8
