75th Anniversary Diamond Edition Chevrolet Suburban –Dan Roth
On this week's episode, Damon and I break down what occurred between Mazda and the RX-8 community late last week. We also go over the new GMT900 pickups and how new battle lines are being drawn in the pickup wars thanks to high gas prices. We couldn't let the week go by with talking about Playboy, as well. This month's issue of the men's magazine was chock full bunnies, Rabbits and high-priced exotics. We end the show expressing our lament for another Enzo that has bitten the dust and give our b
AutoWeek got its hands on the official press release heralding GM's new pair of GMT900 pickups: the 2007 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra.
