Cooley does a great job as the host. He is very professional and proficient on the subject. Cooley should have been chosen as one of the Top Gear USA guys instead of the cast they currently have. As long as Cooley is the host, I will watch and advise others to do the same. Car Tech failed, I believe, because Cooley was just a part timer on it. The other two guys were nice but not great. Best wishes to everyone with the show.
Great Car Show
Brian Cooley does a great job explaining the latest tech offerings from car makers in an easy straight forward manner. There are many podcasts on car performance but none combine the content and style like Cooley. Also enjoy those cool car collections used for the back drop.
Nice job on the recent top 5 ways to tech up your car.
Every episode is solid. Think I'll cry if cnet ever cancels it. Please make many many more episodes!
