It’s a supercharged secret build as Brad enlists some industry A-list companies and builders to overhaul Brian’s Dodge Challenger. Without him knowing a thing about it. If you’ve ever wanted a front-row seat to utter confusion and a group of great friends getting together on a Saturday morning to void a warranty, well, this is for you.
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.
Ryan Thompson attends the 2019 Detroit Autorama at Cobo Hall and gives his honest review of the show. Most notably, his commentary about the Great 8 contenders indicates that the show’s dynamic seems to be changing. The turnout and quality of the cars downstairs was a little light this year compared to year’s past, but the builders and spectators that attended this year’s Autorama didn’t seem to mind. When you get that many of your hot rod friends together in one place, you can’t help but have a great time!
On episode twenty-three, the Gearheads welcome long-time friend and Ridler Award-winning car craftsman JF Launier to the show. The guys talk build stories, driving in the snow, doing donuts in Cobo Hall, and things even get all marine biological when Alex drops the term “Plecostomus.” A French Canadian and a word that Jacques Cousteau might use. Put on your drinking toque, this one is going to get heavy, eh.
