    Why the Mid-Engine Corvette Took 60 Years to Make

    Why the Mid-Engine Corvette Took 60 Years to Make

    Just a couple years ago, the world finally got its first Mid-Engine Corvette. Today on Past Gas, the epic, decades-long story of how we finally reached that point. It’s a story that starts with hiding out from the Nazis in a French brothel, and only gets wilder from there. What were the incredible experimental cars that Chevy scrapped, how did last minute business blunders hold the project back, and who were the geniuses who finally made it possible? It’s a mid-engine LEGEND on today’s podcast.

    Why The ’80s Was SuperCars Craziest Decade

    Why The ’80s Was SuperCars Craziest Decade

    Today on Past Gas-- How did the race to breaking 200mph in a production car set the tone for a decade? How did cars like the gorgeous Lamborghini Countach, the Ferrari Testarossa, and the beastly RUF Yellowbird become potent symbols for an unhinged ten years of excess? Pack the trunk with coke, blast some Guns N Roses, throw on the Oakleys… I pity the fool who isn’t ready for an all ’80s, all supercar episode of Past Gas.

Love Donut… Hate the Politics

I’ve been listening to the podcast since the beginning and love your YouTube channel, but the virtue signaling and woke political views are becoming really annoying. The whole country isn’t California, and you need to cater to a wider audience. Stick to the comedy and interesting car stories. Please keep the politics to yourself.
