This week we’re back with another episode of Autoline After Hours as well as one our audience’s all-time favorite guests. You asked for it, and now you’ve got it: the irrepressible, always knowledgeable Sandy Munro of Munro & Associates. He’ll tell us about a new material he’s working with called “covetic aluminum,” which could be a major manufacturing breakthrough. We’ll also see how much info we can get out of him about the top secret work he’s doing for Chrysler. But, don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of the week’s news to talk about as well. In particular, we’ve got a bone to pick with Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, who just won’t call unintended acceleration what it really is: driver error. Plus, we’ll get into the huge number of automotive Super Bowl commercials seen on Sunday’s game. Did they hit the mark? John McElroy is joined in studio by Gary Vasilash of Automotive Design & Production as well as the Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo.

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

    What a fascinating show. Covetic Aluminum is an amazing product. All the web references seem to be for this show. I watch regularly although I usually have to catch the rebroadcast. You need to keep on keeping on. What a wonderful relaxed environment for this type of conversation.

  2. Kurt Says:

    I shared this webcast with one of my work associates (an electronics design Engineer who has limited free time to family) and he told me that he was enjoyed the whole show. He found it very in depth and fully enjoyed all of the “insider” information that typically is never broadcast on standard commercial programming.

    Keep up the GREAT interviews!
