Police were trying to identify the body of the driver of a Cadillac that burst into flames after the vehicle veered off a winding, narrow stretch of Route 842 and went into a ditch, officials said yesterday. The coroner was expected to perform an autopsy last night. West Chester police were investigating. The car was impounded. "It appears to be accidental, but I can't rule anything out because there's so much destruction of evidence because of the fire," said Detective John O'Donnell.

Perhaps you know the feeling. You wake up. The weather is mild and the rain is waiting for another day. The smell of lilacs is in the air. The day, you decide, is perfect for pulling out your trusty bicycle and going for a ride. All is well with the world, you think, until you roll onto one of Bucks County's major roadways. And then, hemmed in by heavy traffic and left with little or no shoulder, you realize that you are concentrating more on Cadillacs than on lilacs. You have company.

The Dallas Cowboys' big three - Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin - addressed reporters yesterday at the team's training facility in Irving, Texas. Here is the most interesting thing they had to say: "No," Aikman said in reply to a question about the Dallas coach, "Barry Switzer is not a hood ornament. " Postseason veteran that he is, quarterback Aikman knows how to handle the tough questions. The Dallas Cowboys would rather move to Minneapolis than say anything remotely controversial before Sunday's NFC championship game with the Green Bay Packers.

MEMPHIS - Elton Brand is out until after the all-star break because he reinjured his sprained right thumb in the waning moments of the 76ers' loss Sunday at Minnesota. So reserve forward Andres Nocioni has assumed - at least for Tuesday night's game with Memphis - a spot in the starting lineup. Nocioni, 32, has been little more than a hood ornament this season, having played sporadically, never more than 10 minutes in a game. Last season, Nocioni made 17 starts for the Sixers.

AS THE title character in "Maleficent," Angelina Jolie places a curse on a baby to avenge the ex-boyfriend who cut off her wings. Well, you know what they say. Hell hath no fury like a woman shorn. Especially when that woman is Jolie with a digitally disfigured face, amber snake eyes, black horns that make her look like the hood ornament on Morticia Addams' town car, and green smoke coming out of her bony fingers. The problem in "Maleficent" is how to take this baby-cursing freak and make her palatable to a post-"Frozen" sisterhood of empowered girls.

2013 Infiniti FX37 AWD Limited Edition: Equine agility and appetite, Chihuahua space. Price: $53,700 (no options). Conventional wisdom: Edmunds.com says, "Design, performance, and technology drive the 2013 Infiniti FX to the forefront of luxury SUVs. But for a versatile family and cargo hauler, look elsewhere. " Marketer's pitch: "Personality accelerates emotion. " Reality: The new model (replacing the FX35) is luxurious and fun, but all that room on the outside doesn't translate into space inside.

THE SIGHT of the world's most exclusive passenger car, Rolls-Royce's Drophead Coupe, rolling into my driveway took me back to a day in the early 1990s in the British carmaker's factory in Crewe, England. There, an aged engine builder revealed to me one of the things that set Rolls apart from lesser vehicles. Other carmakers, he confided, tried to keep their engines from burning oil, but not Rolls-Royce. It was, in fact, oil leaking down the sides of the pistons that kept a Rolls engine so well lubricated.

For the moment, new township manager Larry M. Comunale looks relaxed and upbeat behind his spacious desk. Everything in his office is neatly arranged. A steel ashtray with a bulldog bearing the Mack Truck trademark on its collar - it also can be used as a hood ornament - is at the front of his desk. A small, blue, plastic trash can holds his pens and pencils. Before long, residents' complaints are sure to tie up his phone and paperwork swamp his desk. But Comunale, 46, is still fresh on the job and getting acclimated.

Normally I attack my holiday shopping with a vengeance. I take my list, check it twice, and cruise through the stores at optimum speed. No bargain is left untouched. Family members have learned that elves sometime substitute items that Santa has deemed unnecessary. But one item on this year's list has given me considerable trouble. I am in charge of picking out a family vehicle. It's not really a Christmas present, but our 15-year-old van, which exceeded its lifespan approximately five years ago, has chosen this time of year to fall apart.

I am standing in a little stall toward the back of a building called "New Oxford Antique Center," looking at something I simply must have. It is an old tin advertising sign for a laxative product. It is big and blue and it has a thermometer right in the center. It promises the bliss of regularity and the taste of chocolate delight. There is no way on earth it is worth the $275 price on the ticket, even in my worst antique and junque-buying frenzy. But it's certainly unusual, a cut above most of the other tin signs advertising baking supplies, soft drinks, whatever.

Somehow, we'd be disappointed if trouble didn't follow Pamela Anderson Lee wherever she went. This time, the "VIP" star created a commotion posing naked atop a wrecked car on a dark Los Angeles street - all, we hasten to say, for art's sake. Seems Pammy and beau Kelly Slater were posing for photos for a spread in next month's Interview magazine. Glam celeb photographer David LaChapelle had posed the aforementioned nude starlet on the hood of the wreck, with Slater behind the wheel.
