(06-15-2017) – HEY EVERYONE!! Miss us?? Back for another fun “Talking About Cars” with the common factor….the all new FORD GT!! The car that won the 24 hours of LeMans in 2016! Joey Hand of Chip Ganassi Racing was one of three drivers who piloted the winning car through it’s paces last year, (with Sebastian Bourdais and Dirk Muller), we talk about the race, the crowds, the body surfing (wait, what?) and doing 200 mph at 3 a.m…..legally. Also joining us, from the Flavor of LA Facebook Live feed, Car Crazy’s Barry Meguiar, who showed up at the event with a black 2005 Ford GT 40….(his own car) and what’s up with him and the color black anyway? I compare him with a singer he says….no one has ever talked with him about before, ALSO….what Dodger Stadium has to do with the early start of the car collecting hobby as we know it, the religious implications of his 1901 Duryea, and what countries outside the US does he feel have the best car hobbyists? LISTEN to TAC 92 by “clicking the link above!! It is EXCLUSIVELY ON I-Tunes and Soundcloud (if you find it on any other sites, it’s likely been pirated and our lawyers will be billing them for that soon!) Enjoy!!

Check out our brand new Talking About Cars interview with Dave Kindig of Velocity TV’s “Bitchin’ Rides”!! We caught up with Dave inside a ’55 Nomad wagon Dave and his crew spent a LOT of time on (Dave never says how much it cost the actual owner to make this car….but it’s wasn’t as much as the “Copper Candy”….and the GM “Carousel of Progress” truck!) Click below and get Dave’s stories of the first car that put him on the customizing map in his home state of Utah….his tips of beard and goatee care….and can he do better at our TAC trivia than Wayne Carini!
Last time we were lucky to get Wayne Carini on Talking About Cars, not only was he a great interview, but TAC 44 actually was honored with two ISVP awards from the International Automobile Media Competition …..but we were also nominated for a best audio podcast award by the Motor Press Guild in California!! Now with our new video format, and Wayne being at the inaugural “Classic Auto Show” in Los Angeles in January, we had to have him back!

On a personal note, I look forward to the day we have a budget where we can actually take one of these cars on the road!! Or maybe….they don’t trust me with the keys….hmmmm!

(02-03-2017) If you’ve ever seen the original Starsky and Hutch TV show or even the 2004 Starsky and Hutch movie, you saw the REAL star of the show in action….that mid 70s Ford Torino! It was loved by S & H fans everywhere. As for the actors….it was not exactly love. Check out our TAC 86 below…..or LISTEN on iTunes, click above or Soundcloud!

To pay tribute this year’s Barrett-Jackson auctions in Scottsdale, we offer a “Throwback Thursday” interview with Richard Rawlings of “Fast and Loud” and “Gas Monkey Garage” fame, INSIDE the “Smokey and the Bandit” promo car that sold for $500,000 in 2016! Richard shared with us what his first car was before he managed to buy his second car….a Firebird Trans-Am. It’s a car that not only does he regret selling….but would buy it back if anyone out there knows where it is!
