V8 Radio Podcast

Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke and Kevin Oeste recap the 2022 SEMA Show and look forward to the new developments to come next year.   A highlight for Kevin was hosting the SEMA Central Stage and interviewing people from all aspects of the automotive world, but perhaps the most memorable was surprising SEMA CEO Mike Spagnola with a Mikey Thompson streamliner model kit… just like the one Mike built as a kid that got him enthused about cars!   Tears were shed, for sure.  Other notables included Top Fuel racer Antron Brown, Hoonigan rally driver Ken Block, and more. Of course, you’ll find Automotive Trivia and much more on the latest 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!

The 2022 V8TV Drive In Cruise was a success, although a bit wet at times.   We were happy to finally fulfill the destiny of having Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke’s 1967 Pontiac GTO, Pauls Wieshuber’s 1962 Buick Electra, and Kevin Oeste’s 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL all at the Drive In event!   There were hundreds of cool cars at the show, and it turned out to be a great night.    (The ride home was a bit wet!)   Paul and Mike had a few minor fixes, but overall the trip went smoothly.   Hear all about it, plus some riveting Automotive Trivia questions and much more on the V8 Radio Podcast!

2022 Speed Week or Speed Weekend? Views from New Zealand on the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast

The 2022 S.C.T.A. Bonneville Speed Week was unfortunately washed out from some big rains, but that didn’t mean land speed racers and enthusiasts didn’t get a chance to hang out.    We met Grant Potter and Dave Kelley, two gentlemen who came all the way from New Zealand for the event, and got their perspective on the sport, hot rodding, and the great people who make it all happen.     Recorded in the parking lot of the Copper Kettle restaurant in Wendover, Utah, shortly after 2022 Speed Week was cancelled.
