Daily Podcast: New York Auto Show or Bust

daily podcast new york auto show or bust

Longtime readers of this website may recall my antipathy towards auto shows. I view the opportunity to watch new product reveals (and attendant spin mongery) with about much relish as I anticipate So You Think You Can Dance? And yet, I'm off tomorrow, dancing with suits. I'm Acela Expressing to the Big Apple to meet-up with Justin for the New York Auto Show. My goal: to ask the tough questions that my colleagues are unwilling or unable to posit. Suffice it to say, I don't think I'll be making any friends. But that's not my nature nor my vocation. I am concerned only with our mutual desire to discover and share the truth about cars. In this, I am your (I swear) humble servant. If you have any suggestions for lines of inquiry, please share them here. Meanwhile, wish me luck.

    I thought that was going to be in West Palm Beach where its warm. Get more info on the never to be release Volt, and don't take "look at out other crappy hybrids for and answer. Or you could grill someone about the FWD/RWD head scratching game for future Impala's. Or you could ask the hard questions about what they plan to do about the AA strike or how any of the Big 2.8 are dealing with it.

    See if GM will tell use why the Pontiac Solstice targa won't be available until "sometime in 2009," as according to AutoBlog. It's a currently-produced model with a roof added! Why is it debuting a year or more before it will actually be available? Wait, you don't have to ask that, I already know.

    Pictures of the models. Not the cars, the honey babes hanging around the rotating platforms.

    Sorry I missed the boat on the party... Guess it's too late now. If not, send me an e-mail if possible? Where? Manhattan has hundreds, thousands of places. Where is your hotel?
