Ben recounts his visit to the Worship Cruise In where he learned about the Cops-In-Cars Car Show at the Roswell City Hall. Misty recounts a great day for the Dutch in Formula One! What grinds Mickey’s gears this week? The fact that all cars should be hybrid by now. And we learn the identity of Volkswagen part number 199398500A.

Dean Case was a junior engineer at Mazda R&D when the Miata was developed. We discuss his career, the history of the Miata, and the connection to a Taco Bell Test Kitchen. (Bob Hall is the true father of the Miata.) In Cultural Collision, Misty wants to talk about Miatas in Film. (And who knew the Teletubbies drove a British Racing Green Miata?) Ben Takes a (Surreal) Moment to reflect on ice cream trucks. Should they play Helter Skelter? Dave and Misty debate launching Lobster Thermador and canned spam from a trunk-mounted tee-shirt gun.

And in Grand Trivia Auto, we learn what made Chrysler’s mid-sixties slant-sixes so unique.

This week, Dave celebrates No Pants Day, Misty brings our Grand Trivia Auto question, and Ben introduces Paul Harmon, proud (2nd)owner of a Million (plus) Mile Mercedes 240D.

Paul waxes poetic about his 4 cylinder, 4-speed manual transmission 1981 Mercedes 2401D, how many 240Ds were produced in Germany for the US market (480,000+!), buying a transmission just for one small gear, how many miles a year he’s averaged (40,000), and just how many oil changes it takes to get to a million miles.

Then Dave blames Misty for all the math that suddenly popped up. Misty vigorously denies any involvement due to her extreme allergy to mathematics.

Dave takes over ‘Dawn on the Autobahn’ as Dawn takes a well-deserved break, and we talk pickup trucks. Concepts and prototypes that never make production just really grinds Mickey’s gear. Especially when you compare the ones that DO make it versus the ones that don’t. We have a moment of silence for the prototypes that are no longer with us, and appreciate the ones that have survived, while Misty invokes the Geneva Conventions.
