After a very successful SEMA show, the Round Six team decides to attend the 2019 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California. What starts out as a simple plan gets sent into hyperspace when they decide to turn the knob up to 11. In a two and a half week period, they design and assemble an incredible display that serves as their podcast command post for what becomes an extremely successful show.
Chip Foose and Carson Lev join the Geargeads in the Round Six Experience at the 70th Grand National Roadster Show for a reunion of sorts. Having both been prior guests, conversation gets candid on topics like AMBR judging/builds, iconic projects like the Boydster and Hemisfear and more… We even head back to Cars Land.
The Gearheads dive deep into the dark art and science of Copyright, Trademark and Intellectual Property for artists with good friend, mentor and industry expert Carson Lev. The first in a series, we’ll get you up to speed on protecting your work and establishing your brand and protecting each using real-world case studies and experience.
For SEMA 2018, Chip Foose brings a 1957 Chevrolet convertible done in a “restomod” style, with an extreme attention to detail and the perfect color choice. The car has the perfect blend of strength, reliability, and performance while still maintaining it’s iconic style that makes the 1957 Chevrolet one of the most recognizable automobiles in history.
The Round Six crew makes the most of a great opportunity when they are granted All Access passes to SEMA, which leads to them being a part of a very special event. Every year, Chip Foose judges the BASF Glasurit Best Paint Award at SEMA. This year, his agent, Carson Lev asked Round Six to video the event for Chip’s YouTube channel. Tag along as the Round Six team recollects the events of the night as Chip rolls through the empty SEMA show floor and gives all a Master Class in automotive styling in the process.
Are your ears untrustworthy? Prefer to be one of those “show me” people instead? Watch episode thirty-four of the podcast, filmed from the Magnaflow stage in Hot Rod Alley at the 2018 SEMA Show. Includes bonus material and exclusive coverage of the show!
While collecting parts for a prior Z/28 Camaro project, Chip Foose stumbled across a rare 302ci engine out of a 1967 Z/28. He thought it would be really cool to find a 1967 Chevy short bed pickup and then do something that the factory designers should have done back in 1967. How about combining the body of a C-10 with the drivetrain of a Z/28, and then sprinkle some first-generation Camaro bits into the mix? And when you’re done, call it a C/28.
The Gearheads take a few minutes to catch up with Chris Jacobs on episode twenty-five, and discuss his love for cars, involvement in the hobby, and the success of his TLC show Long Lost Family, which is gearing up for its fourth season. This one has bar exams (well one, actually), acting careers and even a plug for a high-powered telescope. It’s short on time, but long on value. Of some sort or another.
