Ross Robbins regales us with tales of utter madness driving his Lotus cars all over the USA: long distances, how to avoid breakdowns by carrying spare parts, why ‘the car knows,’ and how to make Hydraulic Cheese. Is the electric Microbus finally about to be real? We share a worst car story that’s pretty hard to beat, and Grand Trivia Auto freezes us out.
Riki Rachtman joins the panel to talk about Nascar, his issues with driving a McLaren, his charity rides, his current wheels, and anything else that crosses his mind in a very special and very free-wheeling episode.
Our guest is Ferrari Market Letter editor Jim Weed, who tells us all about Ferraris and their owners, and how his old hippie-van led to a career working with Italy’s most famous fast cars. Dave recalls being a pirate on the high seas and confesses a desire to name a hamster Civic, Mickey sleeps in an MR2 on the way to Hell, Dawn travels to Texas to meet Minnesotans but winds up with beer and corn chips, and you can’t kill a LeBaron with fire!
