The Roadster Is Technically The Fastest Car In The Universe

Last week there was speculation if Elon Musk would actually send his Tesla Roadster into space. And he did. Tuesday the Roadster was shot into outer space, complete with a dummy driver. It’s pretty insane to watch a car float in the atmosphere. Eventually, the Roadster will be pushed into a solar orbit and outlast us all with the timeline of 1 billion years. You can watch the full launch at

We feature one of the best in chrome this week – Advanced Plating in Nashville, TN. We’ll talk to owner Steve Tracy about the many aspects of their business; from chrome to gold, from cars parts to musical instruments. That’s right, part of the business is plating guitar components, 2.5 million pieces a year!

The 60,000 sq.ft. building is like a giant chemistry experiment with over 160,000 auto parts coming through the doors. Steve will tell us some of the more unusual items they’ve been asked to plate, plus how he and his company survived the 2010 Nashville flood. It’s a great story and maybe Steve will put Gannon to work?
