    Great guest and discussion. My son will be starting IUPUI (Purdue) engineering in Fall and it was nice to hear the information about her collaboration with them.

    You say the Continental and CT6 owned the show…really? Maybe the first half…but when the Civic was introduced in that nuclear green, everything else faded into background noise. Any discussions on the Civic, its design, new platform, and engines would be much appreciated!
