What is it with these turbo chargers anyway? Why not just regular old high compression engines from the 60’s? Well that’s exactly where Ford is going; starting with non other than the old ‘Iron Duke” block and then “changing everything. We thought it was just the Chinese that will rip you off; the Indian company of Mahindra is running a close second, witness the full page article in Automotive News from some very upset Dealers/Investors. Glen finds the new diagnostic seat from Ford to be a little disconcerting.  http://www.autoblog.com/2011/05/25/ford-developing-seat-capable-of-detecting-heart-attacks/.

The Indianapolis 500 “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” was the later part of todays show. The 15 innovations that came out of racing, the history, and the stories behind the race were fun given the 100 year anniversary and upcoming race tomorrow. As for us, you can always find us at www.horacehyundai.com. Thanks for listening.

Today’s show recorded a bet between Glenn Gent and Clifton Horace about the price of gas between now and Memorial Day. Glenn says the price will decrease to less than $3.55 per gallon. $1.00 or waxing the boat is the cost of admission. Clif and Glenn discussed the coming car shortage, diesels, Lexus loosing its title as the number one selling luxury brand to Mercedes with BMW close behind. Lexus and Acura come up with some very interesting promotions http://www.autoblog.com/2011/05/06/lexus-transforms-roosevelt-hotel-into-3d-billboard/. Glenn wants a French Tweezel cause it makes him feel “free as a bird” and allows him to get in touch with his feminine side. VW pulls over a tower with their new VW diesel pickup cause it’s a guy thing proving there are German rednecks too. http://www.autoblog.com/2011/05/05/volkswagen-amarok-used-to-demolish-massive-chimney-in-place-of-w/.  As always thanks for listening and check out www.horacenissan.com for the best deals in the four corners.
