Ask Rick: As the electric offerings from car makers increase, we couldn’t help but discuss the fact that Ford, GM, and Chrysler all have unbelievably higher performing new”real engine” offerings. Ford brought the V8 back to the 2023 Raptor, Chevy just released their first flat-crank engine ever in the new Corvette Z06, and Dodge is continuing to rank #1 in customer satisfaction for their HEMI vehicles. And with all of that said….Ford and GM as well (as other manufacturers) are talking about letting employees go to afford to develop electric cars in a long term bid to get fully into the non gasoline market. What gives?
TMCP #485: SEMA Show 2021 Special #1 – Mike Copeland, Hydrogen Powered Muscle Truck – Chevrolet Performance, 1000 Horse Crate Engine – Clay Millican, Drag Racing and Doing the Right Thing – Mike Pennington, Meguiars Ceramic Paint Protection
The SEMA Show is back for 2021 and I decided to send two guests hosts out to Vegas for a week to get interviews. This decision has resulted in some interesting and diverse guests quizzed by these two “wanna be” podcast stars. As a reset, this will be the first of several podcasts we’ll release through December featuring great interviews from SEMA.
Our two interviewers were Kirk Hansen and Scott Stap. You know Kirk Hansen as a long time show friend and supporter, as well as Scott Stap show writer from previous shows. These two hit the booths at SEMA and met up with old friends of the show as well as some great new companies to talk to. Armed with a mic and a camera they brought back content just for you from the wilds of Las Vegas!
