E63: We’re Not Opinionated

It’s the original trio this week for episode 63. First this week, we talk about Ford and the 2020 Shelby Mustang GT500 dropping the manual from the options list. However, what really grind’s Mitch’s gears is the sloppy journalism from a particular online outlet. Mitch continues the bad news this week with the next Porsche […]

Suzuki Jimny Ruined by Liberty Walk

The Japanese tuning house Liberty Walk has turned their attention from supercars to the new Suzuki Jimny… And I hate it.¬†I’m not sure who asked for it, but I am certain that a few too many Sapporo’s were involved. Liberty Walk is best known for making widebody kits for Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s and Nissan GTR’s, so […]

E50: Lively Young Horse

We made it to episode 50, it’s hard to believe we’ve come this far, and still no end in sight. The first thing we talk about is Mitch’s mistake from Tuesday night. While it wasn’t fatal, it wasn’t fun for Mitch. We then talk about video games, specifically Forza Horizon 4 following the E3 2018 […]

We’re back to our regularly scheduled programming this week with episode 48!

What the deuce? Two episodes in two days? Craziness! This episode is a continuation from the last episode, somewhat, and after a bit of nonsense, we start off with¬†‘Finder’s Fee‘… After Matt incorrectly calls it ‘What About This Car‘ a few times.

We’re late again this week, sorry about that, but to make up for it, there’ll be a special bonus episode later this week as well. We start this week in the usual fashion, with an argument, and a discussion about ‘The Bold and the Beautiful‘, for some reason. Then we break trend and talk about […]

A few days late, but better late than never! This was take-two of episode 45 as Matt accidentally killed the first recording 30 minutes in.
