Daily Podcast: Berkowitz is Back And Detroit Is Mad

My apologies to those of you who've come to depend on TTAC's daily podcasts to relieve the monotony of your daily running machine ritual. You can forget that trip to the tailor as Justin and I get back into the groove with a quick roundup of the action at the North American International Auto Show. And did you know that the show isn't over– not even the press day bit? I was so caught-up in the fog of war that I forgot that there's a whole 'nother 24-hour stretch of PR madness to go. Luckily, it's a more subdued deal, with some 80 percent of the hacks headed home for the homilies. So we'll be bringing you more dirt from Detroit today, and some damn fine Pixamo-living pics too, as Bill has traded his mono-pod for a tripod. Oh, and stand by for Justin's review of a highly anemic automobile, a car plying the roads of the Middle East with appropriate lack of abandon.

    Agree w/ MR. Berkowitz on smaller engines. 25+ years ago as a teen, automotive fun was defined by doing donuts and other sliding maneuvers in a friend's MT Chevette in empty, snow covered parking lots. I actually learned some things about skid recovery and driving dynamics.

    doctorv8, You might be right given the economy, oil prices and all the talk about the environment. I'm still willing to bet that even the C4 ZR1's will make a comeback. All it takes is time. I've got my DVR all queued up to watch Barret Jackson all this week. Rare, well cared for and documented vettes have always been winners. At least on the auction block.
