Take a "RoadTrip" with The Auto Channel
SEE ALSO: VIDEO FEATURE: "Never Stop Driving"
Publishers Note: Twenty-two years ago when we first published the on-line version of The Auto Channel, there was no talk or even a thought of ever having to consider giving up our freedom of mobility and the many pleasures of driving, in exchange for a robotic ride controlled by a bundle of (made in China) silicon valley invented chips and a fear of the implementation of a government run "Central Traffic Control Administration" who will have the political power and technical ability to “make us safer” by eliminating our hard earned freedom of mobility.
Those of you who are regular readers of The Auto Channel know that for the past few years the children from the digital world, along with a push from China; the backing of investment bankers; and misplaced enthusiasm of dumb politicians; have been pushing the adoption of "Autonomous Vehicles"...transportation appliances meant to eliminate personal vehicle ownership and replace Driving with Riding.
In the hope to counter the overwhelming autonomous and EV propaganda, The Auto Channel management has decided to feature "The Auto Channel; Enjoy The Drive" editorial philosophy and spotlight Great Drives in Great Car articles with which to rekindle and stimulate the daydreams of experienced drivers and awaken the appetites of those modern youngsters who have never experienced just how exhilarating and fulfilling the freedom of a Great Drive in a Great Vehicle on an open road can be... enjoy!

RoadTrip is an original television series produced by The Auto Channel. It's been available on TACH's website TheAutoChannel.com since 2005. Beginning in Fall 2008, the series migrated to traditional television, where it can be seen on select cable and broadcast stations throughout North America. Each episode features in-depth, behind-the-wheel discussions with top automotive executives, designers, engineers and other auto industry personalities.
What makes this series different from other car TV programs is the way we conduct the interviews; we put the interview subjects behind the wheel and let them tell us about their vehicle as we travel through some of the country’s most scenic destinations. The vehicles are a variety of new passenger cars, classics, concepts, and future fuel automobiles.
RoadTrip is primarily hosted by The Auto Channel’s Mark Fulmer, who is also the show’s creator. David Ray, founder of Hooked On Driving is one of the series’ alternate hosts. An online extended version of the series will continue to be seen on TheAutoChannel.com. These extended shows contain footage that is trimmed to meet the TV half-hour format.
The series' Producers are Bob Gordon and Marc Rauch, The Auto Channel's Co-Publishers and Founders.
