Chris Shunk, Alex Nunez, Sam Abuelsamid and Dan Roth convene yet again for Episode #186 of the Autoblog Podcast. Topics are the final passing of the long-suffering Chrysler PT Cruiser (http://www.autoblog.com/model/pt+cruiser), General Motors (http://www.autoblog.com/make/gm/)' "Build your own engine" for Chevrolet Corvette (http://www.autoblog.com/model/corvette) buyers, Tesla (http://www.autoblog.com/make/tesla/) and its dalliance with Toyota (http://www.autoblog.com/make/toyota/) prototypes, and the work being undertaken to develop vehicles that can be driven by the blind. There's the inevitable tangential excursions, and we finish up by responding to your feedback and questions before wrapping at an hour and twenty-five minutes. Thanks for listening, see you next time!
