Cars reunion, anyone?

Getty Images The Cars may be revving up for a reunion, according to Rolling Stone.

The New Wave band split 23 years ago and any hope of a complete reunion was dashed with bassist/singer Benjamin Orr died of cancer in 2000. But RS says they've posted a pic on their official Facebook page, of the surviving members — singer Ric Ocasek, keyboardist Greg Hawkes, drummer David Robinson and guitarist Elliot Easton — gathered together in a Boston studio.

Hawkes told the Boston Globe, "I hate to be vague, but I really can't say. It's a crazy world." A link on the band's Facebook to a story about the reunion rumours is accompanied by the question "Anyone in the mood for a reunion by the Cars?"

The Cars' hits include My Best Friend's Girl, Just What I Needed, You Might Think and Drive. Their last record was 1987's Door to Door. Since then rhythm guitarist/singer/husband of Paulina Poriskova Ric Ocasek has worked as a producer with names like Weezer, No Doubt and Bad Brains. RS says there was an attempt to create a band called the New Cars when Hawkes and Easton recruited Todd Rundgren in 2007 but that it was a bit of a disaster.

I'm thinking a band might like to start a reunion rumour just to test the waters and, if a ripple starts, then take the next step. So, anyone in the mood for a reunion by the Cars?
