I subscribed to the show over a week ago but just kept listening to my old favorites (mostly comedy or news shows). Then on a drive home I decided it was time to listen, I was instantly hooked. I think the desire to answer the trivia questions sucked me in or was it learning what's new in the auto industry effortlessly. Its a new favorite. I was stumped on one question (the Mercury version of the Pinto). I'm sure I was stumped on another one but that's the one I'll admit to.

I subscribed to the show over a week ago but just kept listening to my old favorites (mostly comedy or news shows). Then on a drive home I decided it was time to listen, I was instantly hooked. I think the desire to answer the trivia questions sucked me in or was it learning what's new in the auto industry effortlessly. Its a new favorite. I was stumped on one question (the Mercury version of the Pinto). I'm sure I was stumped on another one but that's the one I'll admit to.
