In Episode Five, we are graced with the presence of Suzy Bauter, who was the talk of the 2017 SEMA Show with her killer Rambler wagon. A rich history of cool cars, hot rodding and autocross are but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this PR and Social Media Marketing madwoman. It all goes delightfully sideways, but finds some incredible traction in a discussion about surfboards for incredibly large people. Truly a fun time, and a great look into the exciting sport of Autocross. All of this, and Brian sings, too!

Unsung Heroes of Motorsport

In this second chapter of the Round Six series, “The Unsung Heroes of Motorsport,” Alex and Brian go behind the Iron Curtain with Grzegorz Zdzieszkocziewninski. Spotting his work on race day would be a breeze, but few outside of the fold would recognize how deep of a crease it has left on loads of drivers. Still, he’s not the sort to get steamed over it, he simply presses on. Meet the starched sultan of speedway signals, and learn how he went from folding overcoats to the pole position.

Not only does a woman (regardless of her age) driving a classic Camaro get a lot of attention, it also gives her instant credibility with the racing community. Hauling the mail around a track in 3,000 pounds of steel with a non-compliant Super T-10 four speed, isn’t exactly lady-like. Suddenly my weekends were filled with friends, laughter and camaraderie. No longer was I ‘Rodney’s wife, who brought the salad’, I was Suzy the co-driver of the white Camaro.

He Who Del't It

“So while you guys are opening gifts, tolerating family and literally slapping the 8th highball out of drunk uncle Larry’s hand, just realize that I got my gifts early.”

Dusk 'Til Drawn

I’ve had this shred of paper hanging over my desk for as long as I can recall, and the words on it have always proven true: “All things are delicately interconnected.”

I was but a toddler when Steve Lisk’s brutal ’71 Hemi-powered Challenger (it was originally a 383 car) prowled Woodward Avenue, yet that car carved a place into the foundation of my car guy-ness. And forty years later, it reenters my world. All things are delicately interconnected indeed.

The red truck approached and the girls knew it too and it seemed like they anticipated my disappointment. So instead I focused on how far we’ve come and how close we are and feel the pride and accomplishment in that. The timing slip confirmed the speed of 81.577mph, only 1.424mph off the record…

History always begs to be rewritten. Being a physics aficionado, the theory of multiple dimensions holds a special place in my brain. Couple that with a love for all things science fiction, and my synapses light up with boundless ideas and tales of the bizarre. Taking the above into consideration, behold the final iteration of the winningest Thunderbird on the opposite side of the space-time bubble.
