We’re back in the same place again, and we’re chompin’ at the bit to get to another great Autoline After Hours. This week we’ll be talking about the nominees for North American Car and Truck of the Year. The final six (three cars and three trucks) were announced, and we’ll be debating which vehicle deserves to win. We’ll also be looking out into the future as we examine the coming cost of CAFE regulations. Of course, there’ll be a lot more to talk about, and you never know what will come up in the discussion, so belt yourself in: we’re going for a ride. John McElroy is joined in studio by Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist.

Thanks to our sponsors who make Autoline After Hours possible: Bridgestone, Chevrolet, Dow Automotive Systems and Hyundai.

    Nomination for the Naughtiest award, a whole rail car of coal to Mahindra & Mahindra for completely buggering up the launch of their compact diesel pickup line in the US. Abrogating contracts may have a long history in India, but it is a sure fire way to lose your CUSTOMER BASE here when you act so slyly. If your partners can not trust you, we, the consumer, WILL NOT EITHER!

    Funny you guys ended on learning to drive…..when my son had his permit, we took our car over to a grammar school parking lot the morning after a light snow, no kids or other vehicles (or light posts or curb blocks) in sight. I had him practice the principles in real time, in real conditions, and about 20 minutes into it a township police car rolls up-I explain that he is soon to be licensed, winter is looming, and he has zero experience in limited traction conditions and that I am being conscientious in his training. Good answer! He left us to our explorations of limits and beyond, and recovery techniques. This was before any of our family cars had ABS, so he got a genuine lesson that has served him well to this day, 14 years later. You just took me for a drive down memory lane!

    You guys could be the next Abbott & Costalo, Laurel & Hardy, Ren & Stempy but not Bevis & Butthead (that’s reserved for the top auto exec’s) great show always watch all of your shows, mostly in delay. I worked for GM at the Oklahoma City plant for 28 years until the Bevis guy’s shut it down,that was a Butthead move for such a modern plant.any way love the show and hope you and Peter have a great hoilday and don’t get any coal in your stocking — needs be in the furnace – keep warm. send me a shipping address and I will try to send you a six pack of some Oklahoma beer.
    best To Ya.
