Enjoy listening and learning

Great show to listen to while I am working on my 65 GTO (that used to be my father’s) or even when I am cleaning the house. Love hearing about Mike’s GTO and Kevin’s Galaxy and Riviera trial and tribulations. Kevin and Mike make me feel like I am hanging out in the garage with them during each episode. I enjoy learning about the cars in the V8 shop and the they do to make great cars for their owners. I’ve used some of the tips on my own car, especially getting organized before I start a project. The guests have been wonderful as well. There are many things great about the show that I go on forever. I will end with the trivia questions are a great start and end to the show.

Lots of Car Culture

Great entertainment and always informative on the state of Car Culture in the world. Talk of the auto restoration and repair business, car shows, tools and life with an old car is always on tap. A definite feel of “Americana” that is hard to find in the podcast world. Mike and Kevin are always great to listen to. Time well spent!

Great show for classic car enthusiasts

This is a fantastic podcast for any classic car enthusiasts. Want to have your vocabulary increased by Mikes overselling adjective? They got that. Want some great discussion about classic cars and relevant topics to our hobby? They got that. Want some car trivia where there are big prizes!? Well...there are no prizes but they got that too. Always love the trivia because I get to use it to stump my dad. For some reason I keep clicking that play button....it’s because it’s a great show.

Cheers gentleman.
