THE Jonathan Goolsby of Goolsby Customs drops by to help celebrate sixty episodes of The Round Six Podcast, and the Gearheads get all sidetracked in the best manner possible. Talk runs from SEMA Show-stopping Dusters to third-gen Camaros…. to, well, the infamous teddy bear wheel. We’re not sorry.
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.
On episode thirty-seven, the Gearheads welcome Brian Lohnes, the voice of NHRA Drag Racing, host of “Put Up or Shut Up,” and one of the minds behind Bangshift.com! If you enjoy room temperature shrimp, dermatological maladies and Moon landing conspiracies, well we’ve got those and a whole lot more for for you.
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.
Round Six’s Brian looks back to his involvement in the 2013 Dodge Dart Road Trip, and one very memorable stop following the Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals. Famed NHRA drag racer Jerry Stein had opened his doors to the motley crew of Brian, Steve Magnante and Dodge historian Dave Hakim, an treated them to a day loaded with Max Wedge history and more. We thought it only fair to share a bit of that here with you.
Being a bit of an engineering-minded car geek, I like to tinker. However, with respect to having a warranty, I needed to restrict my tinkering to either factory-approved mods and pieces, or just throw all of that payment-offsetting goodness when it comes to repairs. Playing the grown-up, I opted for the former over the latter, and developed a cold air intake solution using budget-friendly, mostly factory parts.
