    RC Cars Are Crazy Fast Now

    RC Cars Are Crazy Fast Now

    Remote-control or radio-control racing – RC, as it’s known to fans – isn’t a new phenomenon. Since its invention in 1966, there’s arguably no greater thrill for a young car nut than receiving a kickass remote control car as a gift. You may have loved crashing them together as a kid, but how much do you know about remote control cars? Where’d they come from? How fast can they go? Our subject matter is tiny, but this is a BIG episode of Past Gas.

    Steve McQueen Was The O.G. Car Nerd

    Hi everybody I’m Nolan from Past Gas by Donut Media, we’re an automotive history show. Its kind of like hanging out in the garage with your friends, listening to them tell a story from automotive history! 
    Fast cars and big movies are as American as Abraham Lincoln. From the Delorean to the Batmobile, superstar cars and the badasses who drive them have been woven into the fabric of American culture for over a century. What made Steve McQueen a legend in both film and autos? How did he come to love cars even more than movies, and what were his greatest moments, both on-screen and off? All that and more on today’s episode of Past Gas.

    The Bizarre Battle Over... Seatbelts??

    The Bizarre Battle Over... Seatbelts??

    Driving is dangerous! You may think that safety measures would be a popular and easy win for the automobile industry, but it wasn’t always that way. Why would the auto industry collude to prevent important environmental pollution-control devices? Why were Americans so anti-seatbelt that, as one Michigan legislator called it, they fought for their right to fly through a windshield? Today, on Past Gas, the shockingly hard-won safety measures that the auto industry fought against.

    Jeeps Aren’t What They Used To Be

    Jeeps Aren’t What They Used To Be

    Today on Past Gas… Jeep! How did the Jeep teach Europe what Freedom was really about? What does their decades-long progression say about the brand that is synonymous with the 4x4? Jeeps started their history as the automotive equivalent of a decorated war hero, but have they lost their way? All that and more, on a hella yella (that’s the official name of Jeep yellow) episode of the podcast!
