RoAb #76 – The ‘One Man’s Trash…’ Episode

March 27th, 2011 at 5:47pm

Mario-Grand-Prix-AutolineOn this week’s RoundAbout we take a look at the clever way GM is recycling leftover Chevy Volt parts.  We also uncover how they actually tow cars in mother Russia – it’s not pretty – and we debate the merits of the world’s ugliest Pontiac Grand Prix . . . if it has any.  So stick around for all that and more on RoundAbout!  Alex Villani of GM Inside News and Charles Krome of Autotropolis fame are this week’s special guests. Plus, our old friend Zach Bowman sits in and tries to keep the language as clean as possible.
