Unscripted. Unapproved. Unusually frank discussion. Automotive journalist John McElroy taps into his vast network of auto reporters and colleagues to gather for an irreverent roundtable discussion of the latest news to come out of the automotive world. Together with his guests, it's an uncensored, no-holds-barred, tell-it-like-it-is conversation on what's wrong, what's right, and what's up with the auto industry.

This week we’re back with another episode of Autoline After Hours as well as one our audience’s all-time favorite guests. You asked for it, and now you’ve got it: the irrepressible, always knowledgeable Sandy Munro of Munro and Associates. He’ll tell us about a new material he’s working with called “covetic aluminum,” which could be a major manufacturing breakthrough. We’ll also see how much info we can get out of him about the top secret work he’s doing for Chrysler. But, don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of the week’s news to talk about as well. In particular, we’ve got a bone to pick with Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, who just won’t call unintended acceleration what it really is: driver error. Plus, we’ll get into the huge number of automotive Super Bowl commercials seen on Sunday’s game. Did they hit the mark? John McElroy is joined in studio by Gary Vasilash of Automotive Design and Production as well as the Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo.
