The Return Of The Van, Automotive Trivia, and More on the V8 Radio Podcast!

Nostalgia gets the best of our host Kevin Oeste as he stumbles across a car he’s been seeking for 32 years… and it’s a van!   A custom 1979 Dodge Maxivan, to be specific, very similar to the one his family bought back in 1984.   On this episode of the V8 Radio Podcast, Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke is super excited to hear the whole story on this magic bus, and hopefully you’ll dig it, too.    What’s Kevin going to do with it?   We’ll find out!  There’s always some laughs and a couple good Automotive Trivia questions on the V8 Radio Podcast!

This 1965 Shelby Cobra by Backdraft came to us when the owner wanted all the chrome and bright aluminum pieces powdercoated black. In addition, we installed a killer audio system so the driver can hear tunes over the Roush 427! We also performed some paint work on the car after a fender was damaged.
