Rock supergroup The Cars are teasing fans about a possible reunion by posting a photo of the bandmates working together in the studio on their Facebook fan page. The "My Best Friend's Girl" hitmakers split 22 years ago, three years after enjoying a massive global hit with Live Aid theme "Drive".

Bandmates Elliot Easton and Greg Hawkes reteamed for a mini-Cars reunion in 2005, but failed to convince frontman Ric Ocasek and David Robinson to join them. Instead, they hit the road as The New Cars with Utopia stars Todd Rundgren, Prairie Prince and Kasim Sulton.

The new photo features Ocasek and Robinson and an accompanying caption reads: "Anyone in the mood for a reunion by The Cars?" The fifth member of the band, bassist/vocalist Benjamin Orr, died of pancreatic cancer in 2000.

What great news and at the same time sad that Ben will not be part of this. Hopefully they are going to honour his memory or keep some kind of light shining for him, like Floyd for Syd. Can't wait for the new stuff and hopefully concerts and hopefully a biography and a proper website, guys...
