On episode fifty-eight, the Gearheads sit with Elana Scherr of Edmunds.com to talk careers in automotive journalism, daily driving a classic car in LA traffic, dogs, motorsports, engine swaps, and if you can believe it, more stuff as well. What does ninety-weight smell like when mixed with bananas? We ponder THAT, too. Barbara Walters has nothing on us.
Automotive journalist, author of literally hundreds of books, former director of the NHRA Motorsports and World of Speed Museums and all-around fascinating guy and friend of the Gearheads, Tony Thacker stops by. We talk about the wild and crazy 1970’s car mags, trading cookies for access to the Ferrari plant and design studio, and make some Monty Python references, too.
