April 13, 201778 min
The next generation of car lovers has arrived and it's in the hands of the industry experts to help them tame their passion. We begin the first hour with Tony Bowie, who shares the mission of the Southwest Research Institute and their involvement with the Shell Eco-marathon. Then, Alan introduces freelance automotive journalist, George Kennedy III, to talk about their shared test drive of the Volvo V90 XC, and George's 24 Hours to LeMons race. In the second hour, we jump back a couple months to a great show from February; we hear from the king of horsepower, John Hennessey, as well as BJ Killeen, KBB's Karl Brauer, and owner of Workshop 5001, Marlon Goldberg. Join us to fuel your passion for cars.
