Sometimes it’s good to hang out with “just the guys.” That’s why on this week’s Autoline After Hours, we’ll be eschewing our normally scheduled guest segment for a longer discussion about the news of the week and other hot topics that need talking out. Ford reports a record first-quarter profit with North America providing a strong contribution, Buick takes the wraps off a Riviera concept in Shanghai and Fisker goes under the gun of the U.S. Congress. Joining John McElroy in studio is co-host Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, Gary Vasilash from Automotive Design & Production and AAH alum David Welch from Bloomberg Businessweek.

Thanks to our sponsor who makes Autoline After Hours possible: Bridgestone.

    Henrik has NOT fallen . The man is brilliant .
    Maybe his former company is in trouble . But he will be back

  2. Dave Foley Says:

    It is great to see David Welch back – even if it is for just one show.

    His current job brings some interesting perspective to the AAH show. Hopefully he will find some free time around the time the next BIG acquisition/takeover happens in the auto business and drop by and do the show again. He’s a good guy!

    John – I think it would be a good idea to bring in a technical expert on natural gas combustion. I think having accurate information would be useful for your viewers. The nat gas story in general, however, is limited as there’s no demand story – only a supply story. Going all-out on nat gas is a nice story for journalists and citizens hoping for some future growth story. But no business on earth wants to double-down on any energy source whose price trades on an open market. Using more energy than necessary is non-value added. Companies have been de-leveraging themselves from nat gas for more than a decade. They’re not going to turn back.

    Small point, but I like the occasional dual/split screens your editing guy has started doing with the show. Nice touch, John.
