Audio-only version:

00:01 - Important message from John McElroy
02:09 - David Madeira and the LeMay classic car drive to the Detroit Auto Show

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.

SPECIAL GUEST: David Madeira, President & CEO, LeMay Museum

PANEL: John McElroy, Autoline.tv; Gary Vasilash, AD&P; Murray Feldman, CBS Radio Detroit; Karl Brauer, Kelley Blue Book
