We delve into the history of the Lincoln brand. In Cultural Collision, Dave and Dawn hit the road to discuss the history of the motorhome and its role in American culture. Our guest Arp brings us a discussion on “The Zen of Options” and asks the question: “Do we need rain sensing wipers and ventilated seats?” Ben takes a moment to talk about convertibles. (No! Dawn still doesn’t have her rear window fixed yet!) In listener questions, we discuss why you might smell a horse in your defroster. Marisa writes in with her worst car story: a Renault Le Car.

Today, Dave takes on the Chevy Camaro in Cultural Collision, and its ownership of the testosterone niche market. Beka confesses to one of deepest, darkest secrets, ever. Ben takes a moment to talk hotrods and the parallels to jazz music. Beka rejects naming her segment “Wheels with Winifred.” Listeners write in with more worst-car stories, including a Pinto, the “Little Red Fireball of Death.”

Amanda tells us all about ambulances, and she should know since she’s been in a few–luckily she wasn’t the patient! Dawn takes us back to the ’80s for a fond look at a weird but fun era in which cars managed to be cool despite the world conspiring against them. Mickey still wants a Mister Two and Ben confesses his lust for a Scirocco. IROC-n-Roll! Put on your parachute pants, mousse-up your hair, and come along for the ride! Be careful if you can’t drive 55 though, because our Grand Trivia Auto question is about extremely high fines.

Dawn on the Autobahn explores traffic signs of the world, and Mickey’s got a thing about dealer stickers.

Dawn regales the panel with strange traffic signs around the world, and initiates a savage game of Punch-Buggy between Mickey and Dave. We learn the history of cobblestones, and why it makes driving in downtown Savannah a challenge. Our guest Trent makes the case for hatchbacks. Dealership stickers grind Mickey’s gears. We continue our investigation of listeners’ worst car experiences, and learn about the early days of automotive insurance.
