It’s no secret that it’s the people that make it all happen, and on this special episode of the V8 Radio Podcast, Kevin Oeste and Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke express their gratitude for the talented team at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop.   Without the dedicated individuals sharing their passion and talents, these high-quality cars and experiences they bring wouldn’t happen.    And it’s not just the technicians, as there are others who help facilitate the process to make things go as smoothly as possible.   All 24 members of the V8 Speed and Resto Shop team are introduced in this episode.   Even with all that, our hosts don’t skimp on the Automotive Trivia and other things you’ve grown to expect from a jam-packed episode of the V8 Radio Podcast!

Kevin Oeste and Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke chat about a video shoot from the 2022 Firebird Fest pre-run.  Later, the upside of classic cars with drum brakes, because disc brakes are better, but in all cases? This is the first V8 Radio Podcast featuring the new “Cruising Tune” of the show, where we share a classic song, or a new favorite, that lends itself to providing a soundtrack to your next road trip. This first song is “The Heart That Never Waits” by Blues master Joe Bonamassa. After a short walk down Chicago and AM Radio history, we announce the launch of a new Podcast!   Kevin will be hosting and producing the new Bonneville Up To Speed podcast, which covers the world of land speed racing and the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA). Of course, the Automotive Trivia is fierce, but there are some good laughs on the V8 Radio Podcast, your favorite car podcast!
