    Du Sporrrrrrrrrrgh

    Jonny has been driving the Peugeot 508 Sport Engineering while Richard has been having gin-fuelled thoughts about the GR Yaris. Also in this episode, conversational ticks, reading car manuals, the anti-corrosion warranty demands of early ‘00s Mercs, Porsche 964 purism, and what’s the point of the Cupra Formentor? Plus, Martin Brundle’s superleggera necklace, a confusion at the Singer factory, tricking a horrible grandma with a seatbelt, and thoughts on the Voltswagen debacle.

    JDM nonsense

    Jonny has been offered some rotten weirdness. Also in this episode, sending Sir Jackie Stewart a Ford Scorpio full of tat for his birthday, mice treating dead insects like crisps, why The A-Team was better than Knight Rider, the return of a missing tortoise, and would you rather have a car full of wasps or locusts? Plus, the Citroen e-C4, some Renault Avantime facts, how Supergrass came to perform Richard III on Top Gear, Jonny's deranged house demolition plan, and why Richard's new Range Rover is already in the garage.

    Starting quietly

    Starting quietly

    Jonny and Richard start this episode by paying tribute to Sabine Schmitz and Murray Walker.
    Later, talk turns to a Mercedes with knackered dampers in an advert, getting injured by a SEAT Marbella, the stern warnings from parents on foreign holidays, a camper top catastrophe on the Severn Bridge, driving on the wrong side of the road disasters, the new Kia EV6 being a mullet car, Steve Backshall keeping snakes away from Bon Jovi, why the Nissan 370Z is like a Pizza Express vase of ice cream, a Citroen Saxo special edition game, and would you own an Aston Martin?

    That's a negative, lawnrider

    Jonny has been mowing the grass and driving some new cars. Also in this episode, the exploding Megabus of rockets, splashing on the Brut, the great smells of summer, things you see from trains, the story of a lost GoPro camera, the perils of light coloured steering wheels, and how are animals still alive? Plus, thoughts on the VW Golf GTE, the Skoda Enyaq, and the current Porsche 911 with a manual gearbox, and Richard has collected his supercharged Range Rover.

    Beer festival waistcoat Croc Dundee hat and ponytail man

    That chap you always see at real ale events. He probably has a mark 1 Discovery. Also in this episode, more on F1 drivers trolling track days, the badly advertised bounty of Gumtree, failing to address Peugeot's new logo, accidentally treading dog muck into your car, and Richard's dislike of the Mitsubishi Evo X. Plus, why the base-model Porsche Taycan is a brilliant four-door gecko, which car The Scorpions Wind of Change make you think of, Morgans that won't start unless you're wearing a tweed cap, and the tricky laundry regimes of 1980s soft rock bands. Oh, and Jonny has a buying tip about first generation BMW Minis.

    Lewis Hamilton's trackday Discovery 2

    F1 drivers terrorising track days in totally unsuitable cars. Also in this episode, the stress of waiting for an MOT result, the relentless underachievement of the Smith and Sniff YouTube channel, commissioning bespoke supercars with ordinary shells, the dark world of Ulysses 31, having to explain the modern world to someone from the 11th century, and Jonny's strong views about valet parking. Plus, some actual car content for a change including discussions about the Hyundai Ioniq 5, the Land Rover Defender V8, the McLaren Artura, and Gordon Murray's T.50s Niki Lauda.

The wonder of creative language

My son turned me on to these “lads”. Just amazing entertainment. Thank you, the podcasts and YouTube are a such a great way of passing time.

Best automotive podcast

Found the Smith and Sniff YouTube channel after Jonny got the CarPervert going. Watched one video, immediately got hooked, and then all of the 100+ rest in about a week. Just as I finished they started doing the podcast as well. Fantastic.

Their chemistry and humour is superb and proper fitting for telling all their crazy automotive stories that real carperverts (or just people with mechanical sympathy) can relate to.

That’s a definite 5 stars here from a beach in southern Denmark.
