March 19th, 2009 Show

Clif and Glenn discussed the difficulties in the car business along with the passing of Larry H Miller (great car guyand owner of Utah Jazz basketball team). Your hosts also discussed Bob Cockerham (a Santa Fe KIA dealer) who was heading to Washington DC to testify in front of the Senate about how the Credit markets have drastically effected the automobile business.  After that, in a vain attempt to cheer everybody up Glenn brought up the latest iteration of a flying car. Clif reminded the world that every year since he was 5 years old Popular Mechanics showed a flying car on its front page predicting that “everyone would be driving one in ten years”. Four Corners Car talk is up to 179 listeners and proud of em. “They are giving you a number and taking away your name”. Another point that was made was that imitation is the highest form of compliment. Autonation just copied Hyundai Motor Americas “Assurance” program where they will buy the car back in the event you loose your job, or they will make 3 months payments. Your hosts also learned of a company in or around Dolores Colorado that builds Kit (whoops we are now supposed to call them component cars) google last car refuge or something close to find the website. It was a good show, we’ll be gone next week so we’ll see you in April!
