C8 Corvette, RIP Holden

Episode: 19

Broadcast date: March 8, 2020

Guest: Brendan Appel

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing General Motors’ recently announced plans to close Holden, its Australian division… and Damon brings up Tom’s traumatic experience tasting Vegemite for the first time. Next, we talk about our test-drive experiences with the new-for-2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup. Brendan Appel, Director of Operations at Sons of Speed, joins us in-studio to talk about  the all-new, mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet “C8” Corvette. Tom has a Corvette-themed quiz for the crew, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including Tom’s article on the last Holden vehicles. We wrap things up by sharing our favorite Corvettes.
