The car community is funny. It’s only a fraction about the cars; the rest is about the people. Brad goes all-out on a clandestine operation to make over Brian’s Challenger in grand fashion with a one-day thrash featuring hot rod heroes, good friends, and a step toward a young car guy’s future, too. But no brunch.
Designer Jason Rushforth joins the Gearheads on episode seventy-two to talk Porsche, starting a wheel company, the Riyadh Auto Salon in Saudi Arabia, and BMX bikes. It’s a fun and winding road, and is an interesting look at starting a design career and building a name.
The Gearheads sit down to announce their all-new Amazon Prime Video series Stories N’ Steel, dropping this Black Friday. The guys explain what it’s like to self-produce a show, bringing the stories of the best builders, collectors and craftsmen to screen, and how it all ties together with the podcast. And Brad gets a new nickname.
It’s a quick visit this week as John Oro from C-10 Club drops by The Round Six Experience at the 70th Grand National Roadster Show. We talk C-10’s, of course, and explore the genuine family appeal of the truck community, and the C-10 Intervention, which happens THIS WEEKEND!
Brian hoofs it out to Squarebody Syndicate World Headquarters for a One n’ Done Saturday, and grabs a solo episode with Kevin Whipps. The guys relive their youth, the 1990’s Euro tuner craze, mini trucks and more. Homage is paid to the great Courtney Hallowell, and then it just goes all over the road.
The Gearheads welcome Sean Taylor, Vice President of Product Development at M2 Machines for an evening of “small” talk and big passion for cars. We get geeky over details, and dig deep into a company that encourages customization of their collectible offerings.
Sixty-eight episodes (sixty-seven regular plus a bonus one) in and we haven’t been properly introduced. That said, learn all about Alex in this one. Don’t like him? There’s also Camaros and soup and Wiford Brimley. You could probably listen and not even gather what this is about anyway, so it’s all good. And mostly Alex. Grab some oatmeal and enjoy.
Two-thirds of the prestigious Triple Gun Award of Excellence drop by the Round Six Experience at the 70th Grand National Roaster Show. Zane Cullen and Darryl Hollenbeck sit with the Gearheads for a bit and talk about the show, the award, running a shop in the hot rod industry, and nuts. A light-hearted and enlightening episode to be sure.
It’s an episode of icons as Round Six’s fourth man Carson joins us with guest Kenny Youngblood! A legendary automotive artist, designer and custom painter and letterer, Kenny’s career has spanned decades, and he shares some great stories loaded with historic names and locations. A lesson in passing the passion to the next generation makes this one for the record books.
The Gearheads slide into 4-high and spend an evening talking design, marketing, technology and inspiration with Jonathan Ward, the founder and CEO of ICON 4×4 and TLC. Known for their modern take, yet charmingly nostalgic-in-character FJ and Bronco and Derelict builds, the company is blazing new paths through design and forward thinking. We go deep into the “why.”
