Elio | SEGMENT 6 | #201
Josh Hancock recently went to the Elio opening, a $6,800 car that gets 84 miles per gallon. It's not all glam and glory, though, as the cars design raises some serious safety concerns.
Technology - Ever Reliable | SEGMENT 7 | #201
Alan's diesel tractor that powers his studio ran out of fuel and cut his connection for a couple of minutes (not really, but we'll joke about it anyway). Then, we talk about not talking about the Chrysler media event in Detroit with Karl Brauer of KBB.
Pricing Problems | SEGMENT 8 | #201
Even with their amazing line of up of cars, Cadillac is having a hard time pushing their product out the door. Karl Brauer thinks it's because they've set their target pricing way too high, and their President won't back down.

Josh Hancock finally gets to talk about what he wants to! We chat about some of the amazing stunts, cars, and effects that were found in "Mad Max: Fury Road".
Technical Difficulties | SEGMENT 14 | #201
As Alan battles technical issues (and we joke about it), we agree that TV and movies are no where near as easy to fix as radio.
Cadillac Trivia | SEGMENT 15 | #201

Viper 1 of 1 | SEGMENT 18 | #201
The Dodge Viper might not seem like the most obvious choice, but that's precisely what draws Alan towards it. The Viper 1 of 1 program ensures each Viper owner remains in a realm of exclusivity not provided by any other company.
