TMCP #551: Live From RoadKill Nights 2023 – Special Feature with Dodge! Interior and Exterior Design, 2024 Charger, Direct Connection, and Marketing for the USA!
This special bonus episode on The Muscle Car Place is brought to you live once again from the streets of Pontiac, Michigan! Our journeyman reporter Scott Stap was roadside at Woodard Avenue where the streets were closed and setup for LEGAL street drag racing at the annual RoadKill Nights event, presented by Dodge. Every year this event brings action, excitement, and new automotive experiences to Michigan (and visitors from other Midwestern states) automotive enthusiasts!
This episode is from “press day” where grudge match racers were introduced to reveal their drag race cars. Friday was a media only event and Scott was able to get his recorder and microphones in to talk to more Dodge insiders for a behind the scenes look at how the “donuts” of a muscle-car-loving OEM are actually. This was before Roadkill Nights opened to the public and there were a lot of people to talk to in a short period of time. He talked to old friends that have been on the show before as well as interviewing new guests that provided different angles and aspects of how Dodge designs and sells new muscle.
TMCP #527: The 2022 Christmas Show…..Featuring Santa Claus with His Need, His Need, For Speed!!
This week is a behind the scenes interview with the person that writes these very articles…ME! Scott Stap. I have been involved with older and antique cars, trucks and motorcycles since a very young age. My dad (Arlin Stap) taught automotive at Corunna High School and I grew up in an automotive learning environment. I love to attend car shows, cruises, tours, and any event dealing with old muscle, machines, or mayhem. One day I decided to look for podcasts related to muscle cars or hot rods and the first site I found was The Muscle Car Place. I listened for awhile but felt that I could help in some unknown way and started bugging Rob to let me lend a hand. He finally gave in and I have been a part of The Muscle Car Place ever since. My first article was episode 151 and have been able to preview many of the amazing interviews ever since then.
