Our guest Liam tells us about his unique collection of British motor vehicles and a Mopar econobox; British car jokes abound.The gang tries to remember which Mitsubishis are Dodges, which other Mitsubishi is a Chrysler and which Chrysler Corp.’s cars are amalgamations of parts from yet other manufacturers.

Our automotive trivia question takes us to the General Motors origin story and how it has become a major franchise.

On March 30 we’re planning to go to the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival for their C5 Car Show. There is no cost to register a car, and space is limited, so if you’re going to register a car, it’s highly recommended you pre-register. See their website for more information. Awards will be presented for Best of Show, and First through Third places by popular vote.

Ronny approves.
