Mickey generates his own sunspots! Dave and Jay from The Auto Authorities podcast join us to tell us all about their iAutoAgent business for being your agent to buy cars. What cars are always in demand? Have we found our new theme song? Misty has a thing about things that start with F.
How much intelligence is required for defensive driving? Misty is no longer contemplating sewing underwear for her cats but still has a serious grudge against Ford. How much charge can you get from an electric Dodge Charger? How much cheezy fake exhaust-noise does it need? Does Mickey need a muscle-car or an SUV? Tune in and be offended!
Dave sounds phlegmish and has BeeGees in his carburetors. Do you really need those BG services that dealers offer? Should you kiss your mechanic? Misty rants about Dutch Mazda dealers. Tim’s rental car REALLY wants him to BRAKE!!! And just what the heck does Escalade mean anyway?

Film-maker Scott Hardie made a documentary about Paul Moller, who has worked for decades to make flying cars a reality. Is Moller a genius or a crackpot? Are flying cars still 15-20 years away, as people have said since the 1960s? Misty is still moist and worried about her family’s gene-pool. We park in gear, but wonder if our warranty will cover it. Bollard carnage ensues.
Guest Paul Sher talks about his work with movie and TV cars. How much fun is it to drive the A-Team van? Paul tells us! He also tells us how perfect the Mach 5 is for L.A. traffic, how K.I.T.T. can get you into places, chicken heads on Ferraris, and why it sucks to drive a BatMobile. Dave’s childhood is validated, Mickey can’t ask that question, and meatballs become weapons.
