In Episode 004, Reed and Jonathan reminisce about the cars of their teen years (in the 1980s, to be specific): the Pontiac 6000STE and Grand Prix, the Chevrolet Malibu, the Buick Riviera, the Mercury Topaz, and the lesser-spec pedestrian versions of the cars our parents seemed to acquire over our own more sporting preferences. There is content for them furrin’ car folks, too, but you have to listen to get it. There’s also a little chat about plumbing and survival drinking, both separately and together.
In Episode 003, Jonathan and Reed talk branding, disclaimers, the cars of the Gilmore Girls, Dodge Chargers, convertibles, battery inadequacy, right-hand drive, and what else you could get for the same money. Yes – THOSE Gilmore Girls.
In Episode 002, Reed and Jonathan obsess over a 1968 Pontiac Catalina convertible and then go on to discuss the sharing of a collective brain, the logistics and pragmatism of dumb, seeing phantom Miatas, third-generation Honda Accords, and snakes. Big, menacing snakes.
In Episode 001, Jonathan and Reed talk Saabs, why you should pay more for a better car (assuming availability), venerable engine designs, convertibles, twin-turbo yuppie-era Maseratis, parts cars, and rust free vs. “rust free.” We also mock the Chrysler TC by Maserati and Cadillac Allante, while delving into a little bit about what it means to be Totally That Stupid.
