Steve Parker's The Car Nut Show
Saturday starting at 5pm Pacific

Is Toyota "losing it" when it comes to quality? The president of the company seems to think so. We'll discuss it. General Motors has sold Hummer to a Chinese industrial company ... and they're glad to be rid of it; what started as a status-mobile became the symbol for wretched excess in the car world and everything wrong with Detroit. And 350 Saturn dealers get ready to close ... Join two-time Emmy Award-winner Steve Parker, also automotive writer for the Huffington Post, NBC-TV auto show Whipnotic and the Santa Monica Daily Press newspaper, as he recounts and explains all this and more. Plus his popular "One Minute Road Tests." Be sure to join-in the conversation: The call-in number is: 213-341-4353.

The worldwide motor racing season is winding down and competitors are making last gasp attempts to win championships. IndyCar finishes up this weekend in Miami, NASCAR is at California Speedway and Formula 1 is gearing up for their penultimate event in Brazil. Did you see Jimmie Johnson on Conan? Why do all the NBC hosts have to challenge their guests to some sort of dumb driving competition? The call-in number is: 213-341-4353. Join in!
