The Gearheads sit down for a bit with Jimmy Falschlehner and discuss hot rods, the glory days at So-Cal Speed Shop back in the day, re-imagining your brand, surfing, road trips and nearly lighting Billy Gibbons on fire. This one really has a little something for everyone.

We talk podcasting, television shows, first cars and billet guitars among other things… If you’re interested in what it tales to make a unique brand statement in the very noisy automotive aftermarket, you won’t want to miss this one.

Enjoy a pre-GNRS thrash break with the guys in episode four.
