'Twas a couple nights before Christmas, and in the Autoblog house, Paukert and Shunk got Roth off the couch... For episode #158 of the Autoblog Podcast! What better way to get into the holiday spirit than an hour and a half of new Podcast? It's fresher than egg nog this week, as the trio chews on the return of the 5.0 in the Ford Mustang, Audi's more sane torque numbers for the E-Tron, and what may yet be a Christmas miracle: Spyker's dogged pursuit of Saab. Rounding out the sextet of topics are the Alfa Giulietta and its potential as a Chrysler, the BMW Z4 GT3, and General Motors' plan to bring the Buick Regal GS to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, where it will also debut a Chevrolet Orlando-based vehicle called the GMC Granite.

For the long holiday drives, our colleagues at Joystiq and Engadget do fine work.

      Can I just say one other thing... F' Topolsky 'n crew.

      I know you must have a mandate to mention the other podcasts, but he has the biggest forum and he never mentions non 'gadget casts.

      Yeah it's great. Yeah I listen. But c'mon, share the wealth!

      Thanks for sharing the 5.0 weight on the podcast. I was looking all over for the numbers of the 4.6 vs the 5.0 vs the 5.4.

      Energetic podcast this week. Great listen.

      Dan's extra grumpy lately. Bordering bitchy, even. What up, Roth?

        • 5 Years Ago
        Naps can be exhausting, can't they? Still I love them.

        You seemed to be at Chris' throat this week. Anyway...

        ...have a great whatever the f' you all celebrate this time of year.

        Hey, I was napping just before this!

        what was I grumpy about, anyway? I'm good at bitching, and I enjoy it, that's about the long and short of it.

        I love naps. I don't get enough sleep, ever. Now you know as well as I do that you listen to see what kind of cantankerous crap I might spout off about.

        Enjoy your day off on Friday..
