Automotive experts Jim and Bob Hall debate the merits and demerits of GM's two roadsters, the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky. Jim Hall is the chief force behind 2953 Analytics and Bob Hall is the so-called father of the Mazda Miata. They are twin brothers with an encyclopedic knowledge of the auto industry. In each edition of Hall vs. Hall they'll tackle one burning automotive question.
More from the Hall brothers on RoundAbout here and here.

Things are not always what they seem. For instance, you might think this episode is nearly a week late. Wrong as usual, idiot. We were planning to do this episode a year from now, so technically it's early. Why are you so offended? Clearly you are unfamiliar with the word "idiot's" Greek roots. I was simply suggesting you were a private person unfamiliar with the vagaries of podcasting. Again, not what it seems.
So there you go. Houston, we have a theme. This week we've got the coolest 4x4 you never expected, a bevy of protests as the Detroit Auto Show gets going and a wrecked Yaris that is more functional than you'd think. Plus we've got some new fun and games this week including our Mystery Words of the Week, a new segment where we get to stereotype drivers and a couple of burnouts gone terribly wrong.
