Welcome to fox car for a lot of Gary gas saloon did you ever -- You married a doctor not for the money but just we have a doctor -- all the time about maybe a little late for that but for word is actually looking to put some technology -- car killing -- your doctor where he had.
Everywhere you go to reach out and -- to -- a manager vehicle design and -- -- from Ford.
Little bit later on in the show about some of their new technology in that area for joining me in the studio right now -- Chatzky automotive journalist.
Pretty cool stuff from Ford were to be talking about that -- a bit.
Later Ford did have some other news that they just broke today first of all the going to be tripling of their output of what they call electrified.
Cars this is hybrids plug in hybrids electric cars.
With that news though.
They're killing the new minivan and they -- going to be bringing -- the -- Max minivan at the introduced to the Detroit auto show.
Earlier this year apparently Americans now like in the small mini -- that doesn't -- Right.
Well it's electric batons -- -- Car that ran over here quite.
I don't really know from the US -- -- them all here the new C Max hybrid and plug in hybrid CMX energy.
But we've been calling in and then of course going to be building electric version of the Ford Focus and just more hybrid cars in general anyway -- 100000 -- a year starting 2013.
You know previous thirty southerner who 50000 prisons in your postal the other ones and they got a little catching up to do as far as American covers are concerned they are the leader in electrified.
Over there for another interesting story which kind of ties in the minivans Indian insurance institute of I highway who -- I knew I had eight yes.
Obviously if you -- yet today that says that minivan drivers.
Are the -- not the say the least likely to die.
Crash even less apart more surprising -- that SUV drivers twice as safe then.
Carter offers 26 out of whatever compared record of 58 out of whatever.
Would die -- -- -- this goes counter to previous.
Information on the issue and you don't lose the card and football over a -- the suvs that was a big problem not a revenue advanced electronic stability control programs -- the study which -- vehicles from 2005 to two -- -- found that the SUV drivers actually RC for people who bought them because of the thought the -- gracious you know but as a result of this rollover problem actually a pretty high fatality rates.
-- -- even lower than that minivans.
Even lower than that I've got -- SUV though.
That I think would be safer than any of them because I could drive into nuclear power plant with this thing and I just -- there's trouble it is the new -- concept.
The Mercedes-Benz -- the what is it the sixth the anniversary -- concepts and you know -- now.
Mercedes is -- building a vehicle that looks nothing like this.
For sixty years now on and -- in the United States very popular overseas it's hard to tell from the shelf of the distinction which probably.
Twice the size.
Of a homer.
Very capable offer would vehicle used as fire trucks used his rescue trucks to use -- -- rally.
-- Support trucks into the car rally that goes throughout the Sahara Desert was the content that they throw together to celebrate its sixtieth anniversary.
With Mercedes and actually came out before -- -- -- bought the company that makes that are or block the project -- -- in nineteen would -- -- 51.
And that have been doing it for six years I love this and this amazing thing about this is this is built on an actual unit -- Jessica technically speaking.
They could make something like this.
I think they should.
You know I've read.
Comments online and lots of web sites about this track or whatever you call concept.
You're in the minority.
Coming out of it we I sort of like it's okay it's completely -- -- over the top it's huge.
Army looks like something maybe they'll do really well on -- transformers movie or something like that cameo role.
But on its and a nice to see manufacture take a chance and you're in the fifties and sixties.
Up to their early seventies concept cars and drinkers were just you know need to empower their turbines and -- and hoops and -- It's completely ridiculous but it's also nice to see -- German concept is that isn't just like 22 inch wheels and a sedan and they say it's a concept and it comes out a year later and has eighteen inch wheels it's it's it's -- that.
Oh also we forgot what's -- inspired by do you remember.
Had poisoned dart frog yes exactly that that was the design inspiration for -- a poison dart from.
Just some guys earlier this week claimed to discover life on Mars responded to building on Google Mars I think this is what they might be -- to drive up there of my decision until Howard I don't think that's gonna work on Mars there's only about 2% oxygen in the atmosphere there.
Nevertheless -- -- -- -- is one of those body -- Jesse somebody could -- and build one of these themselves if I had the money I would.
They're trying to find I think some lives I -- -- Somewhere someone with a lot of money and maybe not too much sense of commission wanted to -- that's what they're doing suvs over in Europe where you think they -- you you were supposed to hate suvs these days over -- they still -- -- this -- gigantic homers out of business to still make it that thing but Hummer.
Coming back into business.
At least the name check -- what we've got now this is the new Hummer electric.
Vehicle from be my electric vehicle company they've actually licensed.
Hummer before -- at a business disposed -- the -- Hummer H four.
Vehicle to go up against -- the Jeep Wrangler never -- because the company went out of business so apparently this company has licensed the image of that vehicle.
And they've got one of these little resort electric cars.
Sixty miles per charge.
But that means you can -- it for over three hours -- the top speed only ninety miles an hour this is horrible six.
And how to think like that does but it gives you the -- impression that you're driving a -- this looks like an American classes and golf -- as -- Rolls -- -- that's exactly what it is that it already makes cars that look like -- cruising around the resorts down there in the Caribbean is available in the United States I'll take the tree -- Mercedes I can -- and several other things I'd rather buy clothes for 161000 dollars sixers nevertheless if your Hummer owner and you wanna be green.
This is the way to go and you might be driving that a lot of the retirees.
Down in Florida -- -- for them.
And have a lot of other issues the retirees -- health issues people get older but there's still driving cars can downsize it could downsize but I think it also -- -- a little bit health.
Behind the wheel with us now -- -- -- -- was the manager vehicle design and Photronics.
For research and innovation is actually doing that bringing some medical technology into cars thanks for joining us -- -- -- welcome so he introduced a couple of things over their forward.
Over the past couple weeks one of the more interest -- was are -- medical monitoring systems that are being integrated.
Within Europe sync system tell me a little bit about what.
It's going on there.
Chart well what we're trying to do is leverage the connectivity services that we pioneered -- I think.
Into the health and wellness arena.
And we hope that that'll enable people to help manage their chronic illnesses on the go.
We wanted to -- -- kind of technologies that we use for connecting your phone for example apparently the car.
I carrying medical devices which you leave the wearing when you get into the vehicle -- earlier diabetic.
And wanted to completely fair to reduce the consequent leading medical department factories in the US -- make a continuous glucose monitoring -- So if you're diabetic -- can give you not only what you Portugal is but which way it's trending and that information is very critical.
Good -- -- trying to blow returning my good with the chemical or you're gonna happen quite connect.
You can get confused blurred vision Taiwan and that's a really bad -- difficult.
Wirelessly connected I'm -- or Bluetooth wirelessly connected through YouTube and so you would carry this device can do if you repair your phone.
And I think you're wearing your winter coat you wanna know return your blood sugar level is if you -- sync button -- -- blood sugar level.
And it will crude device come back to connect -- -- He also jumping their checks allergy levels in the area Apollo doubles and they are -- done that and device that is connected this is that something actually built into the car.
Well that's that's a different approach that's -- -- deliberately.
-- that are on Smartphones.
Didn't we didn't -- pandora where you get music.
You have heard -- -- on the iPhone called allergy alert included one that's made by the FBI and oh.
If makers of pollen dot com and so are pure -- suffer and there are little sixty million college -- -- -- US.
Again you get into your car -- Terna Nande and he comes back conclusion with -- -- -- like.
Now if your car goes back then it can change the climate control system in accordance with it -- going in high pollen area.
-- its circulation air -- on -- not bringing an external -- This is stuff you pairing with existing devices anything sort of cloud based as innocent as a lot of cloud based services and -- in that area were wrong.
Yeah absolutely that's the third area where we -- to the cloud and media partner we've worked -- and hairdo well doc.
Well doc is saying it's potentially -- personal health come can't.
And -- -- -- -- -- temperature conditions continue to send you information.
Either through the web or through your cell -- On what you should do Escude and stick your reputation and make sure that -- doing what do you in the primary position -- for now.
Now because -- -- -- the phone again I think can be used.
To take this text messages convert them totally.
And you can have an understanding and dialogue with that system -- -- in your car.
Make sure they keep taking care of your health maintenance.
While you're in vehicle.
Now does this technology being driven by consumers asking you to get this in the cars or is this something you've decided hey we've got -- -- -- system.
What else can we do -- that maybe this is an area that our customers alike.
Yeah I -- An attempt to expand the notion of safety.
If you ask people what they think of what automotive safety you know probably say well it's creditworthy and -- -- -- the car -- -- Security air bags from -- they deploy properly.
God willing many people spend your entire driving your life and never getting into a crash but it gives chronic illness you know after that every day every line.
And I don't want to expand the notion of safety beyond a conventional.
We think we can go to the area where we're concerned about health and well -- of people on a daily basis.
And we can do that -- leveraging the connectivity services for the mobile health care services that exist.
I got on a cloud or in portable devices or on Smartphones.
-- that and enable them to better maintain their well being.
Well there in the vehicle is safe manner that doesn't distract from -- -- their -- on the road in their hands on the wheel which is what I think enable them to do.
Now I'm not sure if this is a -- directly involved in -- Ford also has a new prototypes seat that can monitor your heart rate.
-- that's something that -- with our sister research laboratory -- -- in Aachen Germany in conjunction with the university Iraq and and what they're doing there is looking -- -- are pretty familiar to the medical industry particularly in the hospital where.
Everybody is underneath a bed for monitoring -- -- without having to have physical contact with the person.
We played the offensive in the back of the seed and will want to do Connecticut and I think had a heart rate and we believe that heart rate would be an indicator just one.
I don't trust -- but the driver out there we do we compare that with the kind of information information about what to around the driver's car.
So how can -- into traffic and -- driver is doing in the vehicle policy working the million steering.
-- you have brake and the gas pedal getting indication of his workload.
Note that the workload is high and the driver has agreed to into this system.
Then we couldn't stop certain things from happening that would add to -- distraction so for example at that point in time a -- total commitment.
We contended -- -- but couldn't work a little -- we don't want to head anymore distrust him.
If we have active safety systems you know those have warnings.
That come at a predetermined time interval for the event.
Well if the workload high we might expand those -- giving the driver more time to process that information.
And react properly to it.
These are all very innovative concepts that build on what seemed to be existing technologies how quickly could you put this sort of stuff.
Into production or do you think that you might have in a production.
Well so -- some are much further away there at the heart rate monitor because you have to really look at the reliability of the -- -- -- we wanted to have a contact.
It's probably going -- out.
But the allergy alert system maturity in this hot Smartphone and it's simply a question of bringing it likely to quit -- -- probably a year or two away from production.
Chargers to -- -- research and innovation banks -- journalists today.
Very cool stuff lot of cool stuff going -- you know.
A lot of navigation systems today they tell you stock prices sport scores stuff I really don't need behind the wheel if you're -- -- -- Knowing that I might be having a heart attack or died proponent -- diabetic shock.
Could be useful you trees and you've never been in a crash I have never been -- in the car accident I kind of was somewhere among many cars on race track OK but -- even on public -- but never actually hit -- -- -- or been hit by another car I've been very lucky in regards to -- six months and even behind the -- -- this.
Very nice I got a -- -- parking.
But -- on America's real accidents though -- I've been extremely lucky if anything in this building was made of wood.
I would -- and that.
Right now -- talk about high tech cars lot of stuff going on in the electric car business besides what we're talking about Ford earlier today Fister karma the sexiest.
Electric -- plug in hybrid car all the way or so we're told.
This -- was originally supposed to -- -- in 2009 I think can but the more real recent launched it was going to be all right about now may June of this year -- now pushing -- back into July and August of this year.
Growing pains or is this company that's got a lot of money having forwarded something million dollar loan from the federal government.
-- a lot of private investing private investing.
Do you think that.
Companies in trouble are these YouTube of a growing pains because it is a start up carmaker.
And granted it's it's a start up in fact they.
If you like the same day the day -- -- they say they had a hundred million dollar investment from some mysterious shareholders they.
And -- they said -- but he got a hundred million dollars like the day after they announced.
We're gonna launch -- -- in July or August.
Growing pains but also this is like the longest running concept car for children receive a seen this in Geneva telling you are coming into all these auto shows.
I keep thinking OK this is a production model but it's.
-- sort of show kinda.
The differences don't account that would issue every -- you don't normally we're used to a car company developing a currency -- and then you have three years into it showed -- T -- it.
Car companies like karma like test a little talk about a minute -- -- -- the -- revolt we've been sort of spectators of the development plan so.
Probably their fault for giving us these projected launch dates.
That and obviously they haven't been able to meet up to this point.
But again you know this is extremely high tech car fifty miles electric has the extended range engine.
Internal combustion engine seemed as far as you want high performance that ninety something thousand dollars the price of this keeps everyone on that -- But nevertheless you start a company from scratch with one of the most advanced cars in the world hard to imagine there are going to be some delays but at some point -- -- they just say.
Our record tell you what it's out -- -- you were actually delivering the first car I think.
The problem is it if it's technology base and they wanna get it right and make it reliable OK fair enough but would it reminds me of it -- like the 1960s there were lots of boutique.
Super car companies what -- -- didn't even.
Some others -- that were a bit more established they took a bunch of pre orders you know -- of hundred dollars thousand dollars.
Put it in the bank and then three years later people wondered where their cars.
That sort -- seems to be the trend here I'm not saying there's anything shady going on missing and it has a bad parallel with.
Some other longs you know for guidance -- just disappear -- super car companies if it's technology based in and they just want to make sure it gets the range they promised great.
But I mean to have been given a definitive answers to why there are of these -- -- an -- technologies.
Negatives supposedly built said the production line in Finland that's taking care this first car for there is actually built into several production cars.
So there at that point.
Not sure why deliveries have begun to secure an American car covered no American based car companies another new high tech electric car company based in America Tesla they're going to be -- -- a -- -- production producing next car from them as the model S sedan we're seeing a new photos and have -- updated design for this car.
That's been at the auto shows over the last year or so.
There again it's going to be started it cheaper than the that didn't -- -- -- 57000.
For the base model which was a 160 miles per charge this is of course -- pure electric vehicle but then when she you -- took a 300 mile version -- into the 90000 dollar range.
Do you think the design says electric car of the future -- do you think they went a little too.
A little too conservative on the design which kind of looks like Kia optima -- really is everything.
Seat and pitching like an open and do grounded this thing because I see so many cars and there's a C a hint of Mazda six and in that.
Front fenders that's a -- and grow.
I mean not taken from the situation but it -- looks like a modern -- grill in in the back and an -- at a photo of the -- Second jaguar Jerry Jarrett -- very -- I mean none of these are -- cars in altogether it's it's a nice clean -- if you're launching a new brand do you want to bet is that distinctive enough where you need some don't like your karma which actually is a gorgeous car -- -- -- -- pictures you know people are -- -- -- -- -- Nissan -- -- -- admitted -- wild looking.
It would turn off you know anyone there early early adopters and people that really wanted to -- TV.
Nissan and others like the volt they looked -- normal enough that that other folks will be -- to divide and maybe that's what they're going for here it does look very convention.
This part of the question you know everybody says now in a General Motors has a whole new line of hybrids is the -- -- -- hybrids that would just like the cars are based on.
And it all goes back to that Prius which is still by far the best selling hybrid and it looks like.
A Prius it's got a very distinctive design.
I think a lot of these companies are starter played safe.
Go -- with the people know.
They don't want it to look different they just want the efficiency and all that I think there's a good number of people.
And again the Prius proves it over the Prius is also an excellent cars for -- it's a fuel efficiency is concerned.
Nevertheless people buyer for look and especially -- to be buying a 90000 dollar car looks and style I think he needs some style something that people gonna see you on the street and you can -- no it's different.
And you know the volt for instance.
In picture is not too exciting when we see it on the road it does stand out from other -- it's got a very digital look to it.
Every seat in the real world I'm not sure that the -- -- there.
But good looking car just not sure looks any more different.
There we said the Muslims -- -- been jaguar very same number of other cars out there as well one thing that might be helping electric cars though in the future very cool development at MIT yup because for all electric cars it take for ever to recharge.
You know cars like this is going to be temperature at 260 mile range from going to be at least eight hours at a high speed charger for 300.
-- versions Robert going to be overnight on the high speed -- -- you put into 110 outlet -- -- -- -- days to these things recharged.
What researchers at MIT and come up -- is a new battery technology.
That uses it.
Liquid instead of -- it took a lot of errors or liquid based but this one actually has liquid that you take out of -- battery and put back in what they do is actually charge the liquid.
Two different liquids I guess.
Cathode and -- version of the liquid.
They put -- in the car and then when he mix in the car the generate electricity so when the -- runs -- to just pull this spew out.
Put new stuff back in recharge this stuff you just again -- -- that you could Philadelphia's quickly as because a normal car assuming the infrastructure could be.
Could be built to put this into effect -- -- of Cambridge crude.
Kind of cool Cambridge premium -- Massachusetts being location of MIT.
I think the automakers have to jump on this this seems like.
The answer to question that nobody else is the answer to I mean even the best predictions for current battery technology.
1020 years from now it's still going to be hours and hours for charging.
So go like this could really change.
These your emissions world hasn't said what's in this at all because also lingered there is also shortages in certain metals for factories there that that -- -- could crop up in a few -- to that they say what is in this.
I'm not sure I would I forget yeah I'm not sure the proprietary.
Ingredients are going to set exactly has added to the big.
Key thing here is that you would actually reuse.
The fuel so it's not even let us Bieber are like that she's charges being depleted and then the recharging it and -- -- -- -- -- -- very cool stuff though.
And I know there's a lot of interest in this being -- be a very interest in to see how this develops over time well.
You -- -- now to our own -- you know.
When you have owned a car where you want to share with your friends other people when it was broken you know hey this particular perhaps they'll get better than that.
Push well I -- to shared with hundreds or maybe even thousands of other people.
And maybe make some money out of a -- making money he's got my -- joining us now via Skype from San Francisco -- -- he's the CEO and co-founder.
-- get around a new car sharing service out there in the Bay Area thanks for joining us today Sam.
-- scared so you've got a very innovative.
Plan here I'm not completely familiar with how it works similar -- connector were -- a car but you the voters actually using their own cars.
And -- them out to other members of the network is that right.
Yeah directed sort of like -- Carter Center used personal goals and as soon as someone who aren't that they don't you -- -- How -- -- sure other people and that's a cult classic and earned -- anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars a year charter car.
So how exactly none of them -- -- imagine there's some computer device you bring along to get swept over the -- -- that.
Yeah really takes advantage of the trend and Smart card so you can actually do everything's.
Our iPhone -- and you didn't go through your car up to the car from your phone.
And actually unlocked the doors of the -- you're wrong.
So you sign -- for that.
You make your car available.
Be a member with the car to use the other cars -- her other people without cars used in this community who is this open to exactly.
No you don't have to -- a -- with a car so basically you don't lose your car you can I'm sure you're pretty and she's too I'm sure the people.
And so anyone can join me you have a few restrictions in that rerun driver -- -- -- people who are there drivers.
I'm the owner of the car retains a lot of control they can -- -- How I think you're doing mr.
Carr who can share and wanted to share.
And anyone is free to join it and and to.
Their credit wrecked cars.
This is very different than the other plans legs and car like -- connect with the company owns the cars people join the service.
How does the insurance work on this because I -- think that's a nightmare -- I can't even imagine insurance companies know how to ensure something like this.
-- -- Well certainly to go I'll get done that we actually treated accustomed -- specifically for oral culture to your archer.
On you know cases where -- -- on him.
Berkshire Hathaway and we run full insurance deters terrorist cells from start to finish -- We provide collision and comprehensive.
And liability insurance brutal beat regularly car and -- owner of the car.
Currently available just in -- San Francisco Bay Area.
So it was a record anywhere in the country we -- only -- cars in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I don't know are those available today everything from -- standard -- that you might find -- it's time.
Culture -- city car two.
Courses you can tell you wrote Bruce did we threw four -- This is not talking about electric cars with Toys 'R' Us red what's the criteria for it -- for the cars and -- have to make sure these vehicles are safe what what if someone comes up with some.
It could be a clunker for -- what what exactly -- the criteria do you -- the cars before they join the program.
We -- closely inspect the cars we do require -- -- donors.
It occurs regularly.
I'm pretty sure your career cart join anti leaders were alluding to god then certainly yes -- car owner -- car to be 1995 or nearer.
And 150000 miles on him to qualify sort of -- to -- -- mentioned a couple of hundred cars involved how many people.
Part of the service already.
Some 2000 people -- service -- -- officially launched a couple weeks ago.
Back to terrorists disrupt conference then down.
You know it expects to -- you crash huge interest in a lot of people's -- plans to expand to other cities and towns -- Yes definitely haven't released any special plans for we're looking forward.
Parts and they get around thanks for joining us tonight -- It's interesting it's interesting -- innovative.
It's a really good be interest -- -- on how this develop I would think they're legal departments can be -- I mean I have just play devil's advocate I think it's a fascinating concept.
But I just worry that the first time someone has an accident or whatnot and they blame the car and not down that.
You know I think -- Berkshire Hathaway go that's Warren Buffett date yes -- -- this plan released on the insurance that's he obviously.
Believes that it I think it's it it's a fascinating concept and and again I'm I'm curious to see how it how it plays out I wish them success again it's it's unique and and it just sends the criteria it.
Leaves me a little confused and particularly big city like New York -- you know you and I -- you.
As transportation most of the times of what we have a car ever using it could be very useful for some you know in that position I think it'll have some growing pains maybe.
But I'm sure these guys have done their homework and and -- keeping -- and what works what doesn't and if there's a bad -- in the group.
Get him out and get some announcements that it very interesting today when garden not gonna see as part of -- program.
It is the coolest car of the week it's a race -- though is the new delta -- can be seen and now and delta wing.
Now -- -- -- if you remember last year a year or two ago this company delta wing was trying to develop a new recent carpeting Indy racing series from the very much like this.
That's actually four -- the two wheels -- the -- very close together was passed over for more traditional -- -- well they stuck with it.
And now the case CEO the organizing committee for the 24 -- LaMont has granted this special exemption for next year's race is part of their new project.
Garage 56 they call it with a good to be happy one car each year to highlighting new technologies.
They're going to be building this with that game -- all American racers and -- Corp.
up here based appear in Connecticut two time.
American month series defending champion in the LMP two class going to be competing next year at -- in that car this is just.
-- -- Extremely lightweight 1000 pounds to -- race car in the series weighs about two dozen pounds as a result very fuel efficient uses a one point six liter 300 horsepower engine.
But the guys over delta -- tell me that they think this is gonna be on speed competitive -- between the two prototype glasses that in the -- next year.
It looks good for opponents say I had an equity and extreme -- here over here we think it I can't single design not a clear and and for the company is concerned this thing apparently performs very similar to a normal car not exactly sure how that works.
I think it's part.
Due to weight distribution.
-- little bit different and haven't typical car -- -- those.
Tables in front definitely make it look like it's good to feel a little different I'm sure it's gonna feel different rear engine is engine next -- -- -- -- mid engine affect this version of it has to seats per.
He CEO regulations are monsters there's no.
There's not actually seconds right it's that sort of looks like assays for CA in -- to drivers in the carbon does have to be at least.
A two seater vehicle.
Again it's a prototype class -- -- -- the car of the future Speed Racer.
Accidentally died and I think I was actually disappointed IndyCar to go with this design because it is so much cooler looking and everything else we see now here you typical open wheel racer.
I don't will be variation a lot of big names again involved in this and I don't have knows the guy runs the American Le Mans series.
It's part of a team that putting this together seamer and I just see that LaMont next here might see here at the people month.
In Atlanta at the end of the American -- -- -- racing series next year.
Maybe even in some other mention a couple years ago -- had -- hybrid 9/11 back competed at Le -- out of class in the number of American late.
American among series races the races as well Thompson's speech it's -- to -- -- -- -- I just think it's -- -- -- race -- don't -- The same as every other race car on the -- muscle address here -- an exit.
Let's just get boring -- had some wacky races in the past of this yet not a surprise that he's.
Involved in this as well in part because just you but among journalists thanks for joins us -- secret question have you had driven new Camaro convertible yes yes I -- would you think it's.
Very very fast I like the orange with black -- -- origins here was a little wild.
I'd probably prefer the -- the that handling every -- on some some of these nice New York cut puddles and not get -- -- of its much Shimmy in the steering column.
-- some of my colleagues just.
Actually what I love is to put the top down in the rear visibility problem isn't anymore inexpensive and easy that's actually the best thing if -- hit the beach you want to convertible I did I mean -- -- -- hundred degree going to the Jersey -- New York.
-- -- -- -- You actually do you -- -- park if you don't review right -- the full review at fox car report dot com we'll see her next week oh by the way we're gonna have been -- be the guy that designed.
The delta -- racer on the show next week if all things go well constitution for that next Thursday at 2 PM we'll see -- that.
-- pay close attention because this is a historic moment for me at least it's the first time.
In nearly a decade that I have been able to drop the top but a brand new Chevrolet Camaro convertible.
And take -- for crews.
New Jersey Shore.
This is the 2011 Camaro convertible which may be would have been a -- of General Motors didn't have the trouble -- did.
In recent years but it's here now -- it should help the -- our maintain its position.
On top of the pony car sales charts at least through the summer.
Since the -- is deserted from the -- the convertible version in mind -- didn't have to make a lot of visual changes in the field.
To make it happen in tears practically the same -- not that much smaller when the tops of the two -- -- -- nearly identical.
Profile although you get -- to take my word for -- because I'm not about to close it right now.
-- also the same engine choices a V6 that starts.
About 30000 dollars and the -- 26 horsepower V8.
-- in this top of the line 38000 dollar SS version which also comes with the same performance suspension and -- -- brakes as the coupe version.
The thing is despite all of the speed on -- -- I think this cardinal racetrack or even a drag strip that's what the hardtop sport.
Some drive around vegan a V6 is probably the way to go that is until I down shift.
Did little -- gas.
And dad -- got him -- And that's the Camaro convertible in a nutshell it's all about the show the sights and the sounds for both the passengers and the people your -- and by.
Are as good as it gets it is -- for real.
Rock and roll star if you don't believe me just check out the case that the -- -- cover comes.
When I found it I actually thought this was a guitar in fact they -- if you think again.
In Asbury Park, New Jersey Gary just to -- Fox News.
