    Chin spoiler alert!

    Chin spoiler alert!

    Richard has given himself a terrible home haircut and Jonny's brother has bought tyres from a scrapyard. Also in this show, singers with high revving voices, Mariah Carey VTEC kicked in, yo, getting annoyed by some car-based inaccuracies in The Crown, the filming secrets of The Queen's Gambit, middle-aged dad hats, and the acceptability of Porsche branded items. (On that note, the Porsche 911 Turbo tribute trainers are in association with Puma, not Nike as Richard said. Sorry.)

Quite Simply the best Car Podcast for SM fans

No not the Citroen. This podcast is for automotive masochists. It’s apparently a couple of famous(ish) car guys talking about cars… or so you ‘d think.
It’s actually a tease and denial feast of car talk, mixed with random nonsense - just when you think the point about the instruments on the 90’s Venturi is about to climax, they deny and talk about something completely unrelated. The episode with the Lexus and loo role is amazing (not yet aired) You may not enjoy it, but you will like it and you’ll be back weekly for more… ;-)

David vrs Goliath

I listened to the latest episode of the podcast on a drive home from the west to the east of Ireland. Driving on the motorway after having a decent weekend of boozing camping and costal driving and came across an Audi R8 off in the distance (rarely seen in the wild in Ireland), so I chased him down and flew past at ***insert speed limit here*** in my noble steed 2007 granny spec baby blue Ford Fiesta. This is what brings me to my question, what is the best Shitcar vrs Supercar moment you’ve had/seen on the road?
