For the second straight year, the LeMay Museum of Tacoma, WA and the North American International Auto Show teamed up to drive three classic cars to the Detroit Auto Show. LeMay CEO David Madeira is our guest from the floor of the auto show to explain why they tempt fate, and winter weather, to bring these beauties to Detroit.
And don’t miss our panel’s discussion on the Game of Thrones-like civil war going on between CES and NAIAS. Two important auto shows just days apart in January are driving journalists to have to make a choice between the two, which means someone is going to lose out on coverage.

BMW just introduced the new 5 Series sedan. Of course it’s instantly recognizable as BMW with its twin-kidney grille, but the car gets a number of new technologies as well. It features gesture controls, an upgraded voice recognition system and semi-autonomous driving capability just to name a few. While BMW is known as The Ultimate Driving machine, the company says the autonomous features are for those times you’re stuck in traffic and don’t really enjoy driving anyway. But it’s all about choice for BMW customers. We also take time to discuss BMW’s EV future and a couple of new models coming to the X model range.
