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.
Have you ever owned a “normal” vehicle that had a special place in your heart? Most of the time, these vehicles are the ones that are the least valuable and the least exciting. It’s like going to the dog pound and rescuing the best dog you’ll ever own. Maybe it’s Grandpa’s old farm truck, Aunt Joan’s 4-door Valiant, or that beat-up Chevy Sprint that got you through college. Whatever it may be, these vehicles didn’t win your heart by their looks. They did it by providing you with experiences that stayed with you for the rest of your life.
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.
If you’ve ever been to the SEMA show or even just Vegas, you’ve seen these cards passed out at every corner. Someone in our group (who shall remain nameless at the moment) thought of a great card game using those very same cards and we decided to record it. We laughed so hard it’s amazing the neighbors didn’t file a noise complaint. One of the best “stupid” things ever!!
