Hot rod and custom builder, TV star and all-around good guy Tim Strange stops by to hang out with the Gearheads and talk cars, television shows, marketing, sponsorships, goat sex changes and more. We even explore the potential of hot rod fat camp and buffet syndrome, neither of which are related. Yeah, you won’t want to miss this one.

engle brothers full episode list
Podcasts

The jolly Engle giants sit and talk cars, V8 go-karts, kandy-colored strollers and life-sized, anatomically-shaped bottles of maple syrup with the Gearheads here on episode seventeen. We started with good intentions, honestly we did. Alas, it’s an entertaining time with guys whose work has some serious range from Drag Week cars to Lowriders and everything in between. To top it all off, the recurring theme was inspiration, and it’s a beautiful thing in this episode.

A very special episode sixteen races at you with the first awkwardly-produced “Film Friday!” Play along by watching the immortal “Corvette Summer” with the Gearheads. Why? We honestly have no idea why you’d do something like on purpose. If anyone walks in on you, tell ’em you were watching Hentai. Or that you tripped and it fell into the DVD player.

Podcasts

Episode fourteen goes all over the place from Hemi-powered Healeys to concours-level Tucker automobiles with the prolific, super-talented and even nicer still Rob Ida. It’s a fun walk down mmory lane and heads straight through the present day and into the future, too. Also there may have been talk of a game show. It’s that kind of episode, naturally.

Pinstripe Chris full episode round six
Podcasts

It’s the triumphant return of the Pirate and Turtle as the Gearheads spend some time taking art, cars and taking major life risks to chase a dream in the automotive industry with Chris Dunlop, aka “Pinstripe Chris.” Truly a man wise beyond his years, it’s an episode that any artist, fresh or established will find invaluable in terms of shared experience and advice.

Podcasts

On episode twelve, the Gearheads sit and talk Pro Street, starting trends, trail mix and medieval weapons with hot rod builder and street machine legend Scott Sullivan. Other podcasts may have simply toed the line, but we jumped right over that thing and headed straight for Weirdville. Or Dayton. Whatever. It’s a fly-on-the-wall benchrace sort of thing for you, happy listener. We’ll even shut the bug zapper off this time.

carson lev round six podcast full episode
Podcasts

The Gearheads welcome the Forrest Gump of the hot rod world, Carson Lev, and talk mentoring by legends, Hot Wheels, the space program and Disney… Plus a whole lot more. Can you say that Mickey Thompson taught you to wash a car? No you can’t. Otherwise you’d have been the guest on episode eleven.

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.

boats billy b round six podcast full episode
Podcasts

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.
