    This Was NASCAR's Greatest Rivalry

    This Was NASCAR's Greatest Rivalry

    Rivalries are what make racing riveting. Mopar vs. Ford, North Carolina vs. South Carolina, Puralator vs. STP … and today, Richard Petty versus David Perason. Why did they wind up in head to head battles almost every week? How did their rivalry push NASCAR to the limits and save the sport from suffering the same fate as the auto industry during the 70s? All that and more on today’s Past Gas!

    Mazda's Abandoned Luxury Brand

    Mazda's Abandoned Luxury Brand

    Have you ever heard of Amati? In the late ’80s, Mazda took a big swing and tried to create a luxury car brand. They were emboldened by the success of the Miata. But somehow, Amati never happened, and almost 400 million dollars were wasted in the process. Today on Past Gas: how did Amati become a ghost badge haunting Mazda’s dreams? Why does Mazda refuse to discuss the failed brand? How did Mazda go from zoom zoom, to doom and gloom?
