Friends, we’ve had a minor technological setback and we’re breaking in a new computer this week.  Moving from a 2009 laptop to a 2019 laptop comes with a new set of procedural challenges.  Mickey hopes to have it all ironed out in a couple of days, and will update you as soon as possible. We hope to have the next episode of The Thing About Cars out as soon as possible.

Your Support

Your support via Patreon will facilitate some of the peripheral upgrades we must also make at this time. (A firewire hard-drive won’t readily talk through a Thunderbolt port, it seems. Yes, we said firewire.) We’ve been producing The Thing About Cars for over three years with virtually no sponsor support. Your help will keep the show free of advertisements.  

Friends, we very much want to buy a truck. Or a bus. Maybe an RV. Something which might make a great project to get our hands dirty with, converting it into a thing of beauty.

Join us in imagining: “Mobile Podcasting Studio.” If we raise enough cash, we’ll rehab the thing, outfit it with the right gear (including shag carpet), and turn it into a mobile recording studio that we’ll drive to car shows and other events throughout the region.

We should probably work on our photoshop skills…

With your help, we can make this dream come true. There are two ways to help:

  1. Make a recurring gift through our Patreon.
  2. Or make a one-time gift through our Tip Jar.

We thank you for being a part of The Thing About Cars’ family. Your suggestions and comments help us improve the show, and we are always grateful for your support. Thank you.

Friends, we have a couple of car shows on our calendar, and we hope you’ll join us at each event. We might even be recording an episode or two on-site.

On March 30 we’re planning to go to the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival for their C5 Car Show. There is no cost to register a car, and space is limited, so if you’re going to register a car, it’s highly recommended you pre-register. See their website for more information. Awards will be presented for Best of Show, and First through Third places by popular vote.

Ronny approves.

Summit Racing Equipment Atlanta Motorama is set for Saturday April 27 to Sunday April 28 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. We’re looking forward to the swap-meet, all the vendors, and (of course) all the cool cars to see. Will you be showing your car? Pre-registration for Motorama closes on March 25th.  Before March 25, registration is $35 per vehicle. After the 25th, registration jumps to $50. We’re looking forward to seeing you there. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for more information about our visit to Motorama.
