Auto Show

Hosted by

Stories about people who love their cars, for better or for worse. One guy sees his stolen car on the road and gives chase. David Segal takes us inside the world of dB drag racing - where the "dB" stands for decibel, and the cars are too loud to drive ... or even listen to. Plus, Dan Neil, automotive critic for the Los Angeles Times, tells the beautiful and poetic story of Sir Stirling Moss, the race car driver who, at 75, still holds the world record for completing the 1,000-mile Mille Miglia race in 1955, driving a Mercedes at 100 mph for ten hours. (This show originally aired December 10, 2004.)
