Steve King and Johnnie Putman

Host Tom Appel and co-host Damon Bell start the show by discussing Toyota's recent $400-million investment in Chinese autonomous-mobility company Pony.ai, and the broader trend of established automakers forming partnerships with startup self-driving-vehicle development firms. Chicago radio legends Steve King and Johnnie Putman join us in-studio to talk about their test drive of the new-for-2020 Hyundai Palisade SUV and fill us in on their book "A Little More Les," which chronicles their long friendship with electric-guitar pioneer Les Paul. Tom administers another one of his Consumer Guide Power Quizzes--this time on best-selling vehicles--and Damon gives a run-down of the articles posted this week on The Daily Drive blog (including a test-drive review of the new-for-2020 Cadillac XT6 and a gallery of compact "woodie" wagons). We wrap up the show by sharing our "ones that got away"--cars from our past we wish we still owned.
