    Live from Malvern Link

    Live from Malvern Link

    Sorry about some of the sound quality on this one. It gets better after the first 10 minutes. 
    For the first time Jonny and Richard record a podcast in front of a live audience, in this case at the Morgan Experience Centre in Malvern Link. 
    Topics covered in this episode include a new encounter with the OTOSOT man, being given things by a neighbour, the most naive thing you've ever said, being unable to wash a car at home, the Busfest event, 1990s bouncer-baiting trousers, the Acrimonious Rally, things hanging from rear view mirrors, exposed JDM oil coolers, throwing away cruise ships, having problems with a badger, the real reason for lane assist, and are Morgans road rage proof? Plus, a man who looks a bit like Jeff Bezos lifts a very heavy chair.

Lawn lined Porsche boot

There was a bloke in the 1980’s who owned a well known and successful plant nursery in Auckland who bought himself a 944 and would use it as a delivery vehicle for plants and such. There was literally grass growing in the boot! I think this was common amongst all his cars.
