AAH #361 – When Car Shows Clash

January 19th, 2017 at 2:30pm

Audio-only version:

00:01 - Important message from John McElroy
02:09 - David Madeira and the LeMay classic car drive to the Detroit Auto Show
15:20 - NAIAS vs. CES discussion

For the second straight year, the LeMay Museum of Tacoma, WA and the North American International Auto Show teamed up to drive three classic cars to the Detroit Auto Show. LeMay CEO David Madeira is our guest from the floor of the auto show to explain why they tempt fate, and winter weather, to bring these beauties to Detroit.

And don’t miss our panel’s discussion on the Game of Thrones-like civil war going on between CES and NAIAS. Two important auto shows just days apart in January are driving journalists to have to make a choice between the two, which means someone is going to lose out on coverage.

SPECIAL GUEST: David Madeira, President & CEO, LeMay Museum

PANEL: John McElroy, Autoline.tv; Gary Vasilash, AD&P; Murray Feldman, CBS Radio Detroit; Karl Brauer, Kelley Blue Book

    Live spontaneity is fun but I can understand appeal of taping shows (can edit out gaffs, add other graphical content, etc.). Perhaps a hybrid format (part live, part “canned”) could combine best of both?

  2. BobD Says:

    I love the “bonus” time after most live shows where we get to hear what the guests REALLY think.

    I also like the ability to submit questions live. I make it a point to watch live most Thursdays. It the program is just posted, I’m less likely to make it a priority to watch.

  3. Jonathanbrown Says:

    Live shows at 6 pm were more fun….and I liked the interactive nature…

    I can never get home in time for the three o’clock live version…

    Have the crew come in late Friday or leave early Friday afternoon to compensate them..

    Love the shows like eco motors….and other upstart tech…love the company men and women with the new cars too..

    Car and driver and automobile magazine as well as Chris Paulette are great shows too.

    Just my opinion

  4. Albemarle Says:

    I don’t have a view either way about live versus pre-recorded. I almost never have the time to watch live.

    I do really like new car introductions when the executive doesn’t just spew marketing. We all like candid answers and don’t expect a new product scoop. You have clout with the oems John, so more guests like Tadge Juechter, head engineer of Corvette, or the unfortunate Oliver at VW. That’s a learning experience.

  5. Robert Sauter Says:

    Autoline After Hours used to have more of an eclectic feel. There is a balance between being sometimes a bit esoteric and merely informative. I really like your current format but…. Maybe a little less nuts-and-bolts and a bit more pizzazz (Peter De Lorenzo was outspoken, informative and always ENTERTAINING). Also… install a permanent chair for Bob Lutz. I guess I miss the less structured and more free wheeling format.
