Driven Radio Show #23: Corey Pratt of Craving Cars
Brett and Vern welcome special guest Corey Pratt of Craving Cars. Corey talks about how he became interested in cars, the hurdles of starting a YouTube channel, and his hopes for the channel's future. The guys discuss the forthcoming Ford Shelby GT500, the sale of the final seventh generation Corvette at the Barrett-Jackson Mohegan Sun auction, the possible end of the Chevy Camaro, the sale of a crooked Vice President's exotic collection, and how electric cars will soon have to make more noise. In Exit Lane Live, Corey helps discuss all the cool car events coming this month. All this and much more on this week's Driven Radio!
