Exotics, a T-Bird and Indy Cars
In the second episode of our Stories N’ Steel series over on YouTube, Brad and Brian head over to Matt and Debbie Hays’ place for a warm afternoon of talking cars. We cover the T-Bird, the Doritos commercial, Carroll Shelby and more, and even cruise the neighborhood with an Indy car! Join us for an epic and insightful time right here…
Taking an Indy Car Around the Block
On a sunny Spring afternoon, Brad and Brian dropped in on Pro-Street legend Matt Hay to talk Carroll Shelby, collecting memorabilia, cars that got away, tubbed pink street machine Thunderbirds and Indy cars. Needless to say, talk led to ideas, ideas led to action, and we drove two of those things around the neighborhood. Here’s some video.
Indianapolis Joe and the Temple of Cool
Joe Yezzi of Squarebody Syndicate joins the Gearheads to talk lifestyle brands, turning a hobby into a business, and the incredible good fortune of hot-lapping at Indy. If you’ve never been exposed to the unique Arizona car culture, Joe explains and lives it, and has found a way to package that into a popular brand. …and we use the word “bulge” a lot. Like A LOT.
From Behind the Iron Curtain to the Ironing Board
In this second chapter of the Round Six series, “The Unsung Heroes of Motorsport,” Alex and Brian go behind the Iron Curtain with Grzegorz Zdzieszkocziewninski. Spotting his work on race day would be a breeze, but few outside of the fold would recognize how deep of a crease it has left on loads of drivers. Still, he’s not the sort to get steamed over it, he simply presses on. Meet the starched sultan of speedway signals, and learn how he went from folding overcoats to the pole position.
