Dodge Durango, Dealer Home Services, Indy500, and Auto News | #415
Starting off the show, Co-founder of Cartender, and Freelance Automotive Journalist for CarGurus, Boston Globe, and U.S. News & World Report, George Kennedy III, gives us his review of the Dodge Duragno and the new Uconnect 5. If you want space, functionality, and power, the Dodge Durango is for you. Up next, Executive Editor of Autotrader, Brian Moody, discusses Autotrader's Dealer Home Services, gives us a list of the best cars for 2020 graduates, and fills us in on used performance cars for under $20,000. Then, we chat with Executive Publisher for Autotrader, Kelley Blue Book, and Dealer.com, Karl Brauer, about Elon Musk's defiant opening of his Tesla factory. We also talk about how Cox Automotive is using their power to help dealerships out in these trying times, the fact that consumers are looking to buy cars again, and what the automotive industry is doing to keep up during the pandemic. Closing out the show, Director Emeritus of the Petersen Automotive Museum, Dick Messer, recalls how Amelia Island Concours just barely got their event off before the COVID-19 lockdown took full effect. We also hear about how the Indianapolis 500 was canceled for the first time since World War 2. Dick was a young boy at this time, and he gives us his account of the cancelation in 1942 and its return in 1946. Tune in for more automotive news!
