Podcast 32 – grid-neutral dealerships, Fairlady road trip, Rolex 24 and more

This week, as we prepared for the Super Bowl and worked on getting our new site design and hosting set up, we skipped doing a podcast as a group. Instead, Aaron offers a quick recap of the week in a quick-and-dirty podcast for your enjoyment.

You’ll hear reference to:

  • A Honda dealership in New Jersey that has gone grid-neutral and why this matters.
  • One lucky guy’s cool nation-wide road trip in a 1967 Datsun Fairlady.
  • Our review of the 2014 Lexus RX 350 F-Sport, a capable and luxurious crossover.
  • Racing news, including the results from Sno*Drift, and the great race at Daytona for the Rolex 24 of Le Mans.
  • Fiat-Chrysler’s new logo and how it will likely be seen by America and the world.
  • Electric car news including a tit-tat between Tesla and BMW as well as Nicolas’ explanation of why workplace charging is key to EV success.
  • And wrapping up with a look at Tim Esterdahl’s great guest post about Ford’s new F-150 aluminum body and some of the issues it could have.

Next week, look forward to a Super Bowl commercial roundup as well as more exciting stuff from the CarNewsCafe.com crew!
