The Click and Clack award for Priorities in Engineering

RSS
RAY: In the interests of giving credit where credit is due, the Click and Clack award for Priorities in Engineering this week goes to our good friends at General Motors.

TOM: Japan may make cars that don't fall apart. They may make engines that last forever. But thanks to GM, America is light-years ahead when it comes to cup holders!

RAY: This week, we recognize the General Motors Mini-Van (Chevrolet Lumina APV, Olds Silhouette, and Pontiac Trans Sport) for international leadership in cup holder technology.

TOM: In it's fully beveraged position, (with the two middle seats folded down), the APV becomes a five passenger vehicle with fourteen cup holders! Do you realize that's 2.8 cup holders per passenger? Four out of five passengers can have coffee, tea, and orange juice at the same time! C'mon Toyota. What good is a car that runs forever if you're always spilling hot coffee on yourself?

RAY: Congratulations to General Motors for knowing what really matters.
