    How Kimi Raikkonen Became F1's Most Memeable Star

    Today, on Past Gas, the epic and long-as-hell career of the Flying Finn, Kimi Raikkonen. Kimi Raikkonen is one of the most beloved Formula One drivers, a celebrated “Iceman” with an open hatred for doing interviews and one of the most meme-able personalities in the paddock. What makes him tick, and why has he stuck it out in Formula One for so long, considering that he’s on record saying that driving is “more like a hobby for me”? Is Kimi F1’s most underrated legend?

    Lee Iacocca Was Detroit's Most Powerful Man

    Today on Past Gas-- was Lee Iacocca Detroit’s Most Powerful Man? He led not one, but TWO of Motor City’s biggest companies. Without him, would we even have the Mustang? Or the Jeep? Or the… Chrysler Minivan? And how serious was his feud with the Fords? Iacocca’s rag to riches story is an inspiration to car fans and a lesson on how to succeed in whatever you want to accomplish in life.

    How Hot Wheels Torched Matchbox

    How Hot Wheels Torched Matchbox

    There are many rivals in cars, but few are firier (and tinier) than the battle between Hot Wheels and Matchbox. At one point, the two companies were in all out war for the coveted toy car market. Who were the players? How did Hot Wheels end up being the best-selling toy EVER? Today on Past Gas, we’re laying down some flimsy plastic track to explain exactly how Hot Wheels zipped past Matchbox.

    How Detroit Muscle Flexed on the World

    How Detroit Muscle Flexed on the World

    Today on Past Gas: Where did the idea of the muscle car come from, and what even is a muscle car? How did drivers go from tiny flathead V8s to fire snorting 454s in only a few short decades? And who holds the title for the first true muscle car? We’re hitting the gym, doing some auto-body-building, and getting swole for an all muscle edition of the podcast.

    Bond’s Future is Uncertain, But His Past is Aston Martin

    Bond’s Future is Uncertain, But His Past is Aston Martin

    James Bond is an iconic character because of his charm, spy skills, style and… his cars. Bond has driven his share of Subarus and Toyotas. But the ultimate Bond car, the go-to for any British spy worth his salt is the Aston Martin. What started this partnership? How did the Bond franchise affect the business dealings of Aston Martin? And how did Aston Martin affect the Bond Franchise? And why was Roger Moore the only Bond to never drive an Aston Martin? Today on the podcast, we’re taking our martinis shaken, not stirred as we load up on gadgets and embark on a secret mission to learn everything we can about James Bond and his cars. The show is Gas. Past Gas.

    Dodge vs. Ford Was A Toxic Feud

    Dodge vs. Ford Was A Toxic Feud

    Hamilton and Burr. Hatfield and McCoy. Biggie and Tupac. The Dodge Brothers and… Henry Ford? There are many great feuds that define American history, but few know about the legal battle between two automotive giants that forever changed the industry. Why did Henry Ford hate the Dodge brothers so much? How did their rivalry reinforce corporate corporatism as we know it? All that and more on today’s Past Gas.

Morning hrsprs

These guys make make the morning drive bearable it’s like hanging with friends and learning a little bit awesome podcast!

Braxton A ,

So many ADS!

I’ve listened to every episode and unfortunately this show has progressively gotten more and more ads. I get you guys have to make money, but geez. Pod has Funny bits, good banter, but sometimes to much political talk(I mostly align with their views but I don't want to hear politics with my for joy podcast listening). Lots of interesting and informative stories these guys cover. I’d recommend it.

I want James and Nolan to be my dads

Let’s just say these podcasts are the best podcasts of podcasts. I wake up, pour a fat bowl of cereal and turn on the best podcast on the way to work. Keep it up bois. PS. You must do the first car race on June 13th, 1895 by the frenchies
