    Your outage was caused by all them new LED street lamps Detroit is installing . (:

  2. Jon M Says:

    There could be a whole host of issues with Continental’s road departure system. Perhaps they are being addressed and just not covered here. What about if you get pulled over by the highway patrol, will the system resist your efforts and earn you a stiffer penalty for fleeing and eluding? How about when roadwork shifts lanes and overlaps the lane markers? Surely Continental is thinking about those things, or at least they should.

  3. Sean McElroy Says:

    Whoops. That Pikes Peak record is 8min 13sec not the 18min I said. I think I’ll blame it on iPad glare. Yeah lets go with that.

  4. RumNCoke Says:

    Good job by the A.D. crew.

    Sean – How come you didn’t finish today’s show with a smoky burnout in that sweet GT-R behind you?!

  5. HtG Says:

    Well MacGyvered today, Autoline. Don’t open that refrigerator, though. Just let it be. Step away. ;)


    What’s it going to mean when so many different tech solutions are being developed to increase autonomy? Is this better than one method? Will there be tech convergence or will M&A activity be driven by the tech?

  6. Tony Gray Says:

    Loved the new set!

    The audio quality was pretty decent too. Good job.

  7. XA351GT Says:

    Thanks for going on with show. I have a question about this Continental departure system, What happens when you need to leave the lane to avoid something?

  8. Ziggy Says:

    Wow, where is everybody? Usually by this time of the day I am at least the 30th commentore if I choose to opine. Summer vacation kick in that hard already?

  9. Kit Gerhart Says:

    Didn’t GM announce that they are moving some production out of Oshawa, ON? Might that have pi$$ed off Canadians, and be partly resposible for GM’s being number 3 in Canada? Chrysler builds some of their best product in Canada, the rear drive cars, and vans, which may help them. Ford builds Edge in Canada, but I don’t think they are building any Windsor 351′s.

  10. C-Tech Says:

    My recollection is that the Olds and Pontiac were good sellers in Canada. With the elimination of the brands, it knocked GM down a few notches. So much for the marketing idea of keeping them in the family.

  11. C-Tech Says:

    I am catching up on yesterday’s show. Will the new Giulia chassis be able to fit a Hemi? Could it be the next Challenger?

  12. Jerry VanWie Says:

    Very fine ad-lib Mr. McElroy. Nice job
    by the crew as well.

  13. C-Tech Says:

    Sean, are you old enough to remember MacGyver?

  14. John Sahr Says:

    Sean don’t look behind you! There is a Godzilla behind you!

  15. Sean McElroy Says:

    @C-Tech – Don’t let the baby face fool you, I’m plenty old enough to remember MacGyver.

  16. Mark Says:

    Nice job Sean hosting the show from outside.
