The Gearheads finally sit down with Bob Thrash and talk graphics, builds, legendary cars, influences, taking chances and more. In keeping with the ongoing theme of “all things are delicately interconnected,” you’ll be shocked at the single person we can trace all current trends back to. And in a cheesy way.
Hot rod and custom builder, TV star and all-around good guy Tim Strange stops by to hang out with the Gearheads and talk cars, television shows, marketing, sponsorships, goat sex changes and more. We even explore the potential of hot rod fat camp and buffet syndrome, neither of which are related. Yeah, you won’t want to miss this one.
The jolly Engle giants sit and talk cars, V8 go-karts, kandy-colored strollers and life-sized, anatomically-shaped bottles of maple syrup with the Gearheads here on episode seventeen. We started with good intentions, honestly we did. Alas, it’s an entertaining time with guys whose work has some serious range from Drag Week cars to Lowriders and everything in between. To top it all off, the recurring theme was inspiration, and it’s a beautiful thing in this episode.
The Gearheads welcome the Forrest Gump of the hot rod world, Carson Lev, and talk mentoring by legends, Hot Wheels, the space program and Disney… Plus a whole lot more. Can you say that Mickey Thompson taught you to wash a car? No you can’t. Otherwise you’d have been the guest on episode eleven.
