In episode ten, it’s a free-for-all as the guys sit and riff on movie cars, movie ideas, a Hydrazine-based energy drink and a ton of other things that should probably never be mentioned again. However, if you’ve ever watched “Bridges of Madison County” and thought “a car chase would really liven this film up,” then you’re going to love this one.
The Gearheads sit and chat with world-famous custom painter Billy B, and the episode goes delightfully sideways as usual. Big laughs, a serious look at humble beginnings, and a horribly inappropriate intro rivaled only by an acronym so filthy that we locked it in a subterranean vault. Then burned it.
The guys go all benchracing session, and discuss the Street Machine of the Year award and the current state of staleness and apathy with regard to high-end builds, Pro-Touring, and the age of mega-budget cars that all seem to disappear within a year of being finished. And in grand Round Six fashion, they engineer a constructive solution to the problem. And talk tacos.
In Episode Seven, we sat down with documentarian Adam Kontras, and talked DeLorean DMC-12’s, time machines, Back to the Future movie cars, LS engine swaps, family drama, Shakesperian betrayal… and Eric’s eating habits.
All of this as Adam’s documentary, Fastest DeLorean in the World hits Amazon Prime Video, sharing fortuitous timing with another story about a kid from Columbus Ohio who happens to race a DeLorean, “Ready Player One.” Talk about things being delicately interconnected.
