Ric Ocasek and his supermodel wife are calling it quits.

Paulina Porizkova announced the couple's separation with a post on Instagram yesterday afternoon.  She wrote that even though her family has always been a "a well-built car ...  as a bicycle, my husband and I no longer pedal in unison."  Ocasek played guitar and was the primary songwriter for The Cars from 1976 til their final reunion tour in 2011.
