It's Episode #150 of the Autoblog Podcast, and we raided the crypt to give you your buck-and-a-half's worth. Former podcast staples John Neff and Chris Paukert have been unearthed and join Chris Shunk, Sam Abuelsamid, and Dan Roth for this milestone occasion.

A review of the Tokyo Motor Show starts things off, and then we drill down to talk more specifically about both ends of Toyota's sports spectrum: the Lexus LFA and the Toyota FT-86 concepts. Other Tokyo standouts like the Honda CR-Z and Subaru Hybrid Tourer concept weave into the conversation before we turn to the next-generation Honda Civic, rumored to be lighter and smaller. From there, things devolve entirely before this week's big crew wraps it up.

We'll hit your questions again next time around, keep them rolling in to Podcast at Autoblog dot com. We appreciate you filling our survey with data, and remember, if you get lonely, there's always Joystiq and Engadget. Thanks for listening! You can also leave us a message at our new Google Voice number 734-288-8POD (734-288-8763). Who knows... we might even play it on the podcast!

      Awesome Podcast. I truly appreciate the Toyota bashing because Camrys and their drivers drive me crazy. I rented a car at Midway and the gal behind the counter asked if I wanted an upgrade. I asked "what is the upgrade?" Her answer: "Toyota Corolla." I gave her blank stare and said "that is not an upgrade." I took the Chevy Cobalt. Sure it's not a great car, but seriously, paying more for a Toyota? Sigh.

      Having chimed in on Toyota-bashing, one thing caught my attention: the carbon-fiber loom. Could you discuss it more? Could this lead to a break through in affordable use of Carbon fiber?

        Welcome back guys, nice episode and congratulations on the (dubious) milestone. Also, great to have Neff and Paukert back. Surprised there weren't more SHO jokes, but was nice having Paukert as a logical and entertaining counterpoint to Roth's occasionally over-the-top (and misguided) grousing. Keep calling a spade a spade! More of this, guys %u2013 %u2013 see you at 300!
