What can I say other than I love this show. It's about cars but it's a show like you and your friends sitting around talking about cars. It has all the parts of life sprinkled in. It's entertainment. It's people having conversations not following a script. Keep up the good work Matt and Zach.

Really good sports car oriented podcast that is consistently entertaining and funny.

Besides Farah consistently laughing at his own bad jokes, the Valley girl "Like"s and his interrupting of segments (to find noises that aren't being broadcasted). It is really good.

He talk about the Ford's incredible power and poise, and what it's like getting back on a motorcycle. Zack has the 2021 Mini Cooper JCW GP, but they're not sure it's better than the last one. And what are those weird shields for? Plus BMW grills, used car fairness, Corvette vs Ford, and a lot more.

Regular Car Reviews
1:29:55

http://www.omaze.com/TST

Regular Car Reviews describes themselves as "Car reviews mixed with toilet humor." but that undersells the creativity, intelligence, and research that go into their videos. Their unique style of POV and voice over helped separate them from other channels but it was really their ability to project a strange personality and backstory onto cars and their owners that has furthered their success. Underneath the odd voices and jokes lies insightful context and automotive history.

Regular Car Reviews
1:29:55

http://www.omaze.com/TST

Regular Car Reviews describes themselves as "Car reviews mixed with toilet humor." but that undersells the creativity, intelligence, and research that go into their videos. Their unique style of POV and voice over helped separate them from other channels but it was really their ability to project a strange personality and backstory onto cars and their owners that has furthered their success. Underneath the odd voices and jokes lies insightful context and automotive history.

Alan Macey - (Manual Gearbbox Preservation Society)
2:26:44

Alan Macey thinks about cars differently than we do. After graduating from Art Center of Pasadena (arguably the best school for automotive design in the world), he interned at VW, and then worked as a designer at Jeep. He sees cars differently than us. We see a panel gap, and he knows why it's that size. He understands the constraints designers have when they design a new car. He also created the Manual Gearbox Preservation Society ( links below).   We talk about design, Bugatti, VW, challenges of selling a new car, and then we get into a DEEP conversation about AI, the future of car ownership, and argue about how soon it will all arrive.   It's a good listen.

Brett Berk (Auto journalist)
2:09:19

Brett Berk's fascinating story has landed him pretty  high up the automotive journalist food chain. He only has to drive the finest cars, he (admits) he isn't that fast on a track, and when it all began, he was a school teacher. He is a great example of someone who arrived at a job by taking a different path than most of us, and can now say he's written for some of the biggest publications on Earth. This was a great, illuminating, hilarious show.

Partnering with TST, they went up to Malibu in the early morning to take photos of Matt's Countach in the charred landscape. The goal: Capture amazing photos, make amazing poster, sell poster, give all proceeds benefit the resident relief effort of Malibu. And it turned out even better than we imagined. We all had a poster of a Countach on our bedroom wall, and now you can too, with the knowledge that the money is going to help people whose houses were destroyed by the horrible fire the area suffered in 2018.

It's a car show that celebrates the best and worst of the 80s and 90s; the cars, the fashion, the music. People show up in GT-Rs or Lebaron's, wearing mullet wigs, Addidas, neon, and more. It's a car show with a sense of humor. Rick, Art, and Lane are (some of) the creators of this wonderful madness.

Unicus Cars - Darren Schurig and Nate Schroeder
1:22:04

What car do you get if you can afford any and every car available? How do you stand out if you're shopping from the same dealership as everyone else? You have a car made for you. That's what Unicus Cars does: builds one-off customs that have never been seen. We think that's pretty interesting, so we sat down with Darren and Nate, to find out how they do it.
