RoAb #9 - The 'Trying Too Hard' Episode

So SEMA was this week, and as has become the tradition over time, we saw a lot of over-the-top, never-gonna-happen cars. It made us think, are these guys overcompensating for something? Hmm, I smell a theme ... Perhaps this episode will be all about trying too hard.

As if to will away all bad associations, Chrysler creates a new Aston-Martin-esque logo. Meanwhile a Toyota Tacoma tries way too hard to be a middle-schooler's fantasy. Oh yeah, and two Trans-Am body kits are a little too eager to bring back the '80s. All that plus, our features this week: Blind Spot is all about creepy, fez-wearing old men, AutoGadget will ensure that you never lose your car in the parking lot again, Highway Hearsay is about new Chrysler product that's already out on the roads and more!

RoAb #5 - The 'Miami Vice' Episode

This past week J.C. France, racecar driver and grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France, found himself staring at the flashing lights of Daytona's finest in his rearview mirror as his late-night street racing spree was called to an abrupt close.  We watched as the story unfolded and it only got better: an inebriated race between a lime green Lamborghini and a Porsche Cayenne, a baggie of crack cocaine, illegal possession of prescription drugs.  It had the makings of an episode of "Miami Vice" so, we thought, maybe it's time for a series revival.

On today's show, we look at some of the vehicles that would find themselves right at home on the set of the 1980s smash hit. It's a blast from the past with a utilitarian Pontiac beach machine, the Corvette gets a turbo-charged eco-friendly makeover and could the Panamera be the next great convertible? Plus, our features this week: In the Garage with the Volkswagen Golf MK6, a cyber edition of Highway Hearsay as one crappy car gets traded for another, the Blind Spot story about small car buyer's remorse and more!

RoAb #2 - The 'In Your Dreams' Episode

The Frankfurt Auto Show is in full swing and busting at the seams with both fantastical and nightmarish cars. With that in mind, we were inspired to create the 'In Your Dreams' episode. Whether it's a lavish sedan you're unlikely to ever see on the road--let alone have the chance to drive--or a misshapen oddity you'd hate to meet in a dark alley, these are the vehicles that play tricks on your mind.

On today's show we look at the transformation of one of Europe's worst cars into one of its most efficient and the sedan you better get before it's gone for good. Plus, our features this week: In the Garage with the Lincoln MKT, a DIY AutoGadget with a heavenly touch, the Blind Spot story of the week and more!
