365 DAYS OF A
Could you drive for an entire year without an automatic transmission? What about air conditioning, power windows or even headrests? Today’s vehicles come standard with so many features it’s hard to remember how basic cars used to be. Autoline Daily Correspondent and RoundAbout Host Craig Cole recently interviewed one man who’s ditching all of these modern amenities for an entire year in a project he’s calling 365DaysofA. Check it out!

CHRYSLER’S NEW SRT8 LINEUP
Chrysler’s Street and Racing Technology group has been promoted to a full-on division within the company, and it’s now headed by design superstar Ralph Gilles. But not only has the SRT brand and its management been upgraded, so has its all-important products.
Look at that smoke trail! It’s like someone’s having a bonfire under the rear end. Be sure to catch Autoline This Week. We have a terrific program we’re calling Sirens of Chrome.
