What’s Kuchen with Kevin Oeste of V8TV


Episode twenty-two of the podcast that shouldn’t have brings it all next-level with the always awesome, always friendly and super-prolific Kevin Oeste of V8 Speed & Resto Shop, V8TV, and Muscle Car of the Week. And his team just broke 50,000 subscribers on their YouTube channel. If that doesn’t make you feel lazy by comparison, he’s also the face on many promo videos for aftermarket companies and the host of SEMA Central at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

…and he likes Buicks. And knows his kuchen.
