    Why The ’80s Was SuperCars Craziest Decade

    Why The ’80s Was SuperCars Craziest Decade

    Today on Past Gas-- How did the race to breaking 200mph in a production car set the tone for a decade? How did cars like the gorgeous Lamborghini Countach, the Ferrari Testarossa, and the beastly RUF Yellowbird become potent symbols for an unhinged ten years of excess? Pack the trunk with coke, blast some Guns N Roses, throw on the Oakleys… I pity the fool who isn’t ready for an all ’80s, all supercar episode of Past Gas.

    F1's Greatest Rivalries: Hamilton vs Alonso

    Today on Past Gas, one of the greatest rivalries in modern Formula One-- Lewis Hamilton versus Fernando Alonso. What were the origins of the rivalry, and how did it lead to one of the most awkward peach-eating incidents of all time? How did Lewis, as a rookie, get under the champion’s skin so easily? How did a pit stop threaten to destroy McLaren’s relationship with Alonso? How did the rivalry set the tone for F1 for years to come? The year is 2007, Steve Jobs just announced the iPhone, Shrek the Third is out in theatres, and McLaren had two drivers who hated each other. All the F1 drama you can handle, on today’s podcast.

Land speed racer

Hey fellas, great show. If you want Mo Powe Baby land speed is where it’s at. Just finished reading “Speed duel”the inside storey of land speed records in the sixties. Would love to hear your guys take on the subject. One of my favourite shows always tune in when commuting to work.
