2014 Corvette C7 : Walkaround : Tadge Juechter Chevrolet Chief Engineer

http://MPGomatic.com takes you on a walkaround of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with Tadge Juechter at the New York City premiere event. Tadge is the Chief Engineer/Vehicle Line Director - Corvette at General Motors. The Corvette first premiered in New York at the GM Motorama Show sixty years ago. This historic event featured pristine representatives of each of the previous six generations of the Corvette, including the very same car that was shown in NYC decades ago. The C7 Corvette Stingray was first shown at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, just prior to this event. The red 2014 Corvette shown in this video was shipped to Scottsdale, Arizona immediately after this event to be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auction. It sold for $1.1 Million to Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. Parts of the audio in this video are a tad noisy. There were photographers and journalists crawling all over the car while we were shooting. Why they couldn't make the tiny effort to close the driver's door and stop all that dinging is anybody's guess. Keep your ears out as one guy SLAMS the door on this $1.1 million dollar pre-production car. Shooting this video was one of the coolest little opportunities that's come my way in this MPGomatic adventure. Many thanks to General Motors for the invitation, to Tadge for his time, and to you for watching. Having the opportunity to create videos with top automotive engineers and race car drivers just might be the best part of this gig. This piece was shot (handheld, for the most part) with a Canon XH A1s, using a Rode directional mic.

Buy a Cheap Car from Uncle Sam? Government Auto Auctions (GSA) - Pt I
Looking for a well-maintained low-mile used car at a low price? Maybe something that Fox Mulder or Dana Scully drove in an episode of the X-Files? Your prayers have been answered! The US government unloads over 40000 vehicles per year at the GSA Auto Auctions. You can find all kinds of stuff, from police sedans like Chevy Impalas, Dodge Chargers and Ford Crown Vics, through big SUVs like the Explorers (Scully's current ride) and Tahoes. There are plenty of Malibus, Focus, and Minivans. Loads of pickup trucks from the half-tons (Ford F-150s and Rangers, Chevy Silverados, Dodge Rams and Dakotas) through the heavy-duty stuff. And yeah, lots of big trucks and buses. Uncle Sam has something cheap for everyone! GSA Auctions are held at dozens of locations across America on a monthly basis. These auctions are open to the general public. Anyone can bid. You can find a good deal on a late model government owned used car, many with low mileage. They’re not exciting vehicles, for the most part, although I have seen stuff like Hummers and Mustangs. Prices are pretty good. As a rough estimate, you can figure on the vehicles going for dealer trade-in price. There are caveats, but overall GSA Auctions are one of the best places to buy a cheap car, truck or SUV. The GSA auction events also include odds and ends, but they’re not usually the place where you’ll see expensive and exotic luxury cars, seized from their owners - so, no Lamborghinis, Ferraris, or Bentleys - that’s a topic for a whole ‘nother video.

2016 Toyota Prius Hybrid - 88 MPG? Seriously?
Ride along with http://MPGomatic.com as we aim for 100 MPG in the remarkably fuel efficient 2016 Toyota Prius Hybrid. The new Prius crushes the numbers we achieved with the Prius C and glides more efficiently than any hybrid we've ever tested. This is a Prius Three (not the Two/Eco). My full review of the 2016 Prius will post in the Autobytel channel. If you're shopping for a high-MPG hybrid, you'll also want to check out the "Ten Things You Need to Know About the 2106 Toyota Prius" that I shot for Autobytel, at the first media drive event back in November.
