Customer Reviews

Hey man t ,

Great listening

I thought I was the only that rounded bolts and turned every 20 repair into an all day project. I recently found you guys and enjoy the banter and real world Hotrod issues like searching for old parts and parts that should fit but just don’t. Cheers.

HoDozer Mike ,

Always a solid listen.

If you like cars, trucks, motorcycles, or Hotrods and even if you don’t these guys are an awesome listen. They will definitely make you laugh, and have great topics of conversation.

GLawrence87 ,
