Episode 134-Bad at sports, even in a fantasy world. “When in doubt, throttle it out.” Classic words to live by. In this episode, we enter our own creation into the lexicon of legendary automotive adages. Inhale. Here goes: “Don’t look at me like I’m the one that put the TRD stickers on the Jeep Grand Cherokee door handles!” Boom. Nailed… Read more →
Episode 133 – Seriously, it’s like looking through a child’s Batman mask. Ian discusses something that we’ve all known for a long time, but we’ve never quite articulated it like this before: Just because something is awful doesn’t mean that it isn’t fun or that we wouldn’t do it again. People, we present the rental spec Dodge Challenger R/T. Just… Read more →
132-Dave Kisses Dusty Goodbye, Ian Keeps His Shoes On Because He’s Not A Monster, And We Rehash The Carstanza Hashtag
Episode 132-Goodbye. Hello. Coming home. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of getting back into your car after a long trip. You kiss your fingers, touch the headliner, and pray that it starts. It’s refreshing being back on home turf, and in this episode, we discuss that feeling. Speaking of turf, there is a little matter that needs discussing; what… Read more →
131-Ian Finds A New Version Of The X6 To Hate Even More, Dave Numbs A Coworker, And We Spread The Rage Of Calling Out Carstanzas
Episode 131-Irrational Rationale. There’s a saying: “Don’t yuck someone else’s yum”. Sure, sounds good (and a touch gross) in theory, we get it. If you’re into putting car eyelashes on your Pontiac Grand Am, then you do you. When you dig into that statement, REALLY dig into it, you start to notice it’s a sliding scale. On one end is… Read more →
Episode 130-We have thoughts… If we had a dollar for every time this show was an emotional roller coaster, we’d have lots of dollars. The life of a person is full of ups and downs, and being an automotive enthusiast certainly greases the tracks (mainly with oil from cracked VW oil pans), often times accelerating our vacillation between the two… Read more →
129-Ian Chokes Dave, But Not Like In A Hot Way Or Anything, And Dave Contextualizes Ian’s Car, But Not Like In A Hot Way Or Anything.
Episode 129-Urus Urus. If you make it to the end of the show, you’ll probably never hear the name of the weird Lamborghini SUV without it being coupled by a spine-tingling shiver and part of your soul (if you have one…Dave) giving up and leaving. So yeah, besides spoiling Lambo names, Ian makes Dave say uncle. And by uncle, we… Read more →
Episode 128-Cliffhanger!!! Look, we have a bit of an inverse Midas touch. We worked hard to line up an interview with one of the best voices in automotive journalism, Alanis King. The very next day with our interview stored safely away, F1 announced that they were no longer going to use Grid Girls. Sigh. It would have been nice to… Read more →
127-Ian Hits Things With A Hammer, Dave Almost Gets Kicked Out Of A Lexus, And We Change Our Metaphorical Socks.
Episode 127-Soft IT Hands Sometimes life requires a delicate touch. Unfortunately, this is not one of those moments, so we have to buck up and put our soft IT hands through their paces. It’s not all manual labor, bruised knuckles, and sweaty brows, thankfully. There are some fresh feelings: pulling on a new pair of socks, the catharsis of beating… Read more →
Episode 126- Cats, Hell and otherwise. Let’s have a construction discussion. Well, we did, and we do, and we need to continue to do so. Similar to seeing an entertainment center for what it is, a composition of bolts, wood, and glue, we see the automotive landscape for what it is. People, cars, personalities, unity as well as its fair… Read more →
125-Dave And Ian Surprise Each Other And We Fly Too Close To The Parts Desk On Wings Of Wax. And Fuses.
Episode 125 – Kids Icarus In the psychological realm the term projection is used to describe a scenario in which you interpret someone’s emotions or actions in a way that describes something that you are truly feeling yourself. In this week’s show, we blatantly use a random Audi vanity plate as inspiration for a new automotive term. Are we correct?… Read more →
