Dan Baker of Alumicraft Street Rod Grilles joins the Gearheads for their first episode back in the studio following the Grand National Roadster Show, and the guys “grille” Dan on his involvement with some recent Detroit AutoRama Ridler Great-8 cars, running a small business, and what the ugliest car of all time is. And Brian makes a questionable joke or two.
The guys go all benchracing session, and discuss the Street Machine of the Year award and the current state of staleness and apathy with regard to high-end builds, Pro-Touring, and the age of mega-budget cars that all seem to disappear within a year of being finished. And in grand Round Six fashion, they engineer a constructive solution to the problem. And talk tacos.
