Autoline After Hours Tonight 

This week the AAH crew is back from its hiatus and on location in the new studio. We'll be making up for lost time, discussing some of the biggest stories we missed. Cerberus' Bob Nardelli ran his mouth off about the Chrysler-Fiat partnership and had to issue a humiliating retraction. The guy who triggered the Nardelli backlash? None other than After Hours alumus Jason Vines. Also, the Big Three contract negotiations seem to point to the fact that the UAW is in fact running scared. And, some happy news for the Motor City, the Detroit Grand Prix will return in 2012. To discuss this and more, John McElroy is joined in studio by Peter De Lorenzo the Autoextremist with a special appearance by Mr. GreatNoRoCo himself, Roaster Jack a purveyor of fine coffee and a Buick fan.

Autoline After Hours Tonight With Clay Dean, Director, GM North America Advanced Design

This week the topic is wood. Sorta kinda. Actually, we'll be touching on the very special wood that went into the new Cadillac Ciel concept, and we'll be talking with none other than Clay Dean, the Director of North America Advanced Design for GM. We'll be asking him where the future of Cadillac and other GM design is going in the next few years, and we'll see if we can talk him into letting us test drive Cadillac's new über-sedan -- but somehow we doubt it. To discuss this and more, John McElroy is joined in studio by Peter De Lorenzo the Autoextremist and Scott Burgess from The Detroit News.

Autoline After Hours Tonight With D. Mark Trostle, Head Designer, Roush

This week we're asking: why did Jack Roush hire a full-time designer? And, we think we've got the perfect man to answer that question: Roush's new head of design, D. Mark Trostle, a man with an impressive performance car pedigree. He's designed such cars as the Buick GNX and Chevy SSR as well as the renowned Speed33 Roadster -- so what's going down at Roush? In addition, we'll be discussing the news as usual. Is Toyota playing it too safe with the Camry's new styling? Is the Cadillac Ciel concept a hint at the brand's upcoming flagship sedan? Why are Ford and Toyota teaming up on hybrid development? To discuss all of this and more, John McElroy is joined in studio by the one and only AutoextremistPeter De Lorenzo.

Autoline After Hours Tonight With Ed Welburn, VP of Global Design, GM

This week we peer into the future of automotive styling with the Vice President of Global Design for GMEd Welburn. We'll be finding out more about the upcoming Cadillac XTS and ATS cars. And as the push for massive CAFE increases looms, we'll get Ed's take: does aero-optimization destroy expressive styling? We'll also find out how GM studios around the globe compete to design vehicles the company has in the pipeline. We won't forget the news of the week though: can OEMs shrug off the current market turbulence? We'll also discuss John's sneak peek at future Lincoln product and get into details of the brand's turnaround plan. John McElroy is joined in studio by the one and only AutoextremistPeter De Lorenzo.

Autoline After Hours Tonight With Tom Crumm, Author and Duncan Dayton, Highcroft Racing

This week can you say "Double Feature"? Join us for not one but two visionary guests. Our first guest wants to do away with the assembly line as we know it. Tom Crumm, the author of "What's Good for GM?", believes the future of manufacturing lies in the past when small teams built each car from start to finish. Crumm thinks this is a surefire way to rekindle the passion workers once had for their products. Speaking of passion, our next guest has plenty of it. Duncan Dayton is the owner of Highcroft Racing, which is involved in bringing the DeltaWing concept to race at Le Mans in 2012. He says this could be "one of the most significant developments in motor racing in 50 years." John McElroy is joined in studio by the one and only Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo.
