Click above for the Autoblog Podcast in iTunes, RSS or listen now!


Episode #146 of the Autoblog Podcast puts Chris, Sam, and Dan in fast company, talking to Corvette racer Johnny O'Connell. Johnny's heading out to run the Petit LeMans, but he took some time to chat with us first. Once the crew settles down about apexes and back straights, we head off into a couple of topical discussions. Jay Leno's two-lap challenge starts us off, and GM's new "May the Best Car Win" ads get our attention next, and then we move on to Nissan's settling of the class-action lawsuit over GT-R transmissions. Some questions finish us off near the hour and a half mark. Thanks for listening, and if you like what we're doing, be sure to let us know in our survey or by leaving reviews in iTunes. Our friends over at Engadget and Joystiq do great podcasts as well, in case you need a fix before we circle around again next week.

      Just getting around to listening, why all the hate on 55 year old "white guys." I plan on being one some day and if this podcast still exists I don't want to feel hated when I listen. I guess since it's politically correct to hate on old white men you feel safe doing it.

      Just listened to the podcast. Good job this week as always, just wanted to give a little correction: A C32 AMG is not a mid 90's car, it's like ~2002-2005 and is a 3.2L supercharged engine with 349 HP. Just FYI

        Yeah guys you dropped the ball on the C320 AMG. It kinda did not make sense to compare a mid 90's car with a slew of early to mid 2000's.

        I'll forgive you though.

      I'm gonna join the chorus here hoping it will help an authority notice the issue. . .

      RSS feed hasn't been updated!

      But more importantly, thanks very much for the podcast! Its among my favourite hours of the week when I can settle down and give it a listen!

      How many minutes in does the GM commercial end?

      This dude is annoying. He's answering questions like he's doing a quick track-side interview where word count trumps a thought out, meaningful, answer.

      "it's all about team work, and today it all came together, and God is great, my wife too.."
