More stuff on GM’s IPO and whether you should risk your money buying the stock or not. Glenn talked about the 13 scariest cars http://www.autoweek.com/article/20101029/CARNEWS/101029879 and some poor guy buying a 75 International Harvester ¾ ton pickup off the internet 1600 miles from home (duh!) http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/28/how-not-to-buy-a-project-vehicle-the-tale-of-the-1975-internati/#continued.   Pikes Peak is going too pave the road to the top for some strange reason ruining a race that has been running since 1916… finally Nissan does the dumb thing; hauling around a diesel generator with its electric Leaf car demonstration tour (do you think that deletes the purpose of an electric car?) http://green.autoblog.com/2010/10/28/nissan-leaf-road-tour-gets-help-from-a-diesel-truck-with-440v-ch/.   As always thanks for listening www.ziakia.com.

Fun Show today. Picked on Steve Rattner (Again!), gave a little history lesson on GM and speculated as to when and what car started the down fall of same. Rattner got dis-invited as a speaker to the Detroit Economic Club on account of a little 6 million dollar fine he paid to the SEC. Doesn’t seem fair does it…. Finally, let Jimmy Carter says it all for how government can fix all our problems, especially the energy crisis… 40 years and nothing has changed.

Talked about ads you won’t see from GM or from Hyundai about US production and then wasted a perfectly good hour talking about which of the big three diesels you should think about buying. Ford won with GM and Dodge second and third… How do you deal with the disappointment  of your truck loosing? Listen to C&D’s 5 stages of a poor road test showing.  As always thanks for listening and if you have questions or comments contact us via www.horacenissan.com .

Steve Fossett’s 800+ MPH Jet car is for sale, we are going to ask them for a test drive first and then see what the monthly payments come to. $3,000,000 is the asking price… Hal 9000 the computer in 2001 a Space Odessy is now working for Google.  http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/14/video-abc-news-gets-taken-for-a-spin-in-googles-self-driving-t/ Apparently Google has been running a fleet of cars around the US without drivers…http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/10/report-google-quietly-logs-over-140k-on-autonomous-cars-in-u-s/ No tickets and no drivers, in 140,000 miles is pretty impressive. The Toyota Hilux is the vehicle of choice for the Taliban and many other insurgent groups; they are even tattooing the Canadian Maple Leaf on themselves to show their love and affection (Real Hilux’s come from Canada). And Steve Rattner is selling books, paying off the SEC, Paying off the State of New York, and being investigated for playing politics in the huge Dealer reduction that GM and Chrysler performed under bankruptcy… Got to love government at work… As always thanks for listening and if you would like to contact us just click www.horacenissan.com.

Let me see, let me see… We talked about I-phone Apps that diagnose your car (or lead you to believe you can), Mark Knopfler’s new song about Mark Donahue (The car was the one), GM’s limited stock IPO (which should actually help us get our money back) and the wonderful food at Zebadiah’s. We also picked on the Land Rover road test done at our very own Black Bear Pass outside of Telluride. Glenn lost control over mitsui’s new virtual test drive gimmick www.autoblog.com/2010/10/08/mitsubishi-to-offer-remote-control-test-drives-of-real-outlander Loved the description of the new Nissan Juke  and the goofy video about the Turkeys attacking a Porsche http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/08/video-wild-turkeys-attack-hapless-porsche-driver/. As always thanks for listening www.horacehyundai.com.
