The Nitty Gritty:

Welcome to Episode 68 of  the Podcast!

We’re simul-posting the show show here on as well as on so everyone can get their fix.

For those new to the scene, the podcast show is hosted by myself and Larry Callahan, the owner of

The show is sponsored by the fantastic hot rod wiring supply company, Ron Francis Wiring, and we’re very appreciative that they were our FIRST EVER show sponsor, and the first sponsor to re-sign for 2014!

Latest News:

For the first time in quite a while we had the chance to do a “normal” show, in between live events and fun interviews. While some of the news was sad, most was happy, and we even discussed an upcoming interview with Top Gear celebrity Rutledge Wood in the near future!

1) Source Interlink Media announced that it is shuttering 12 publications. The list of closed titles includes Popular Hot Rodding, Rod & Custom, High Performance Pontiac, Custom Classic Trucks, 4 Wheel Drive & SUV, Mud Life, 5.0 Mustang, Modified Mustangs & Fords, Camaro Performers, GM Hi-Tech, Import Tuner and Honda Tuning. Our thoughts and prayers to friends of ours at those publications who got caught up in the mess of it all.

2) The new season of Top Gear USA started a few weeks ago…..and it was an all Pro-Touring show! Bill Howell’s Charger, Yancy’s Camaro, and a Classic Recreations ’67 Shelby GT500CR were all featured! If all goes well, Top Gear host Rutledge Wood will be joining us in a future show!

3) Rob’s Chevelle lives! It’s running for the first time in 3 years and will be back home sometime in the very near future! Unfortunately this means that Rob will be skipping the Road America event on June 21 to prep for the big event, so Larry will go solo.
