Last week I was asked by to make a guest appearance on the AutoBird Blog Podcast with Colin Bird and was happy to do so. The podcast originates on www.autobirdblog.com and is co-hosted by Joel Feder from www.acceleratempls.com. This week's theme was "What's in a name?" where we discussed everything from the future of the Mercury brand to Fritz Henderson's return to General Motors.
After introductions, Joel goes into discussing his experience driving the 638 HP Corvette ZR1 in Dallas, Texas last weekend. We then get into some of the recent news topics in the industry, the below:
- Honda and Ford gain retail market share from Toyota

During the podcast's Talking Points, we go into the current state of GM's rear-wheel drive programs; including what is in store with Sigma, Alpha and Zeta. That includes the eventual demise of the Sigma platform, the history of Sigma and Zeta and the upcoming rear-wheel drive programs within GM.
