Heading to the Mitty this weekend. That will be fun. Formula 1 streaming still sucks.

Screw you, Microsoft. Racing wheel doesn’t work.

We get into the dealer network and how they are screwing up the process of buying cars, not least of which being the Focus RS and special Mustang models. Even that is nowhere near as bad as the 2004-2006 GTO. What a joke, Barry!

Why is it when these young kids say they "make" something because they're part of "maker" culture, they always mean they used a CNC machine or 3D printer. You're never gonna cut your finger off like that you dang kids!

Jim also shares a tale of woe from an Uber ride.

Jim went to the Atlanta International Auto Show, saw some cars, listened to some press conferences, and generally failed to network with people in the industry. 

Jim did run into Christopher Lawrence of Auto Academics, who was a great source of advice to us when we started Crossthreaded. Check out his channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFhNaleqCBdxE8T6S-PufLA

We were sad to hear that Edd China is leaving Wheeler Dealers, but could not have more respect for him. See his announcement here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IB15T1LYiY

Jim and Meghann get into how often people should be retested for their driving license, whether car dealers who sell cars on credit should be able to cut off the car if people get behind on payments, and the latest ridiculous behavior from the MTV reality show known as the NASCAR shore.

In this episode we present a dramatic representation of what we think a first date with a NASCAR driver might be like. Turner Leftworth is looking for the woman of his dreams!

The Ford GT! Is it a fraud? Should we be angry? What am I supposed to do with this torch and pitchfork? Aw dangit my pitchfork's on fire.

Also this week we are proud to present an interview with Kevin Patrick, founder of Exomotive, at Exomotive HQ. Exomotive, of course, are the makers of the Exocet kit that Meghann and Jim built.

Meghann and I got a chance to drive a new Subaru Outback owned by her parents. It yelled at us. The car yelled at us. 

Our guests are the Doyles, Lonnie and Adam, from Texas, who build the DF Goblin kit car: http://dfkitcar.com 

It's a super cool mid-engine rear-drive kit car which uses the Chevrolet Cobalt as a donor. We want one. Bad.

In this episode, we are thrilled to welcome a guy we look up to in the automotive YouTube space, Eric the Car Guy. He's such a great dude, we really appreciate him joining us. 

Also, we recap our race at Barber Motorsports Park with 24 Hours of LeMons, in which Jim has beef with Randy Pobst, and we do a lot more wrenching than driving.

In this episode, our guest is James Marcellana of Jzilla Track Days (http://jzillatrackdays.com). We chat about how his track days got started, what makes them a little different, and how best to enjoy them. 

Plus, WRC Monte Carlo, horse racing rally style, and Meghann and Jim go over a press release from Mazda Racing about how Mazda treats their Rolex 24 drivers before, during, and after their stints in a race car. Some of it sounds a little bit weird.
