In this week's episode of Autoline After Hours, John McElroy, Peter "The Autoextremist" DeLorenzo, and David Welch of BusinessWeek are joined by the dean of automotive journalism, David E. Davis, Jr., for an unusually candid discussion about the issues and events affecting today's auto industry.
We assume our own invitation to speak in front of the House Financial Services Committee today got lost in the mail, or perhaps we didn't respond quickly enough to Barney Frank's e-vite (we thought it was for another one of his crazy house parties). Regardless, our absence in DC today doesn't mean that Congress thinks the opinion of the automotive press is useless. We've just learned that Winding Road's grand poo-bah, David E. Davis Jr., is scheduled to testify at the bailout hearings today. WR
