Tony Thacker is our guest on this episode of the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast, in an interview recorded on a windy night in Wendover, Utah at the 2023 SCTA Bonneville Speed Week. Tony is living his hot rod dream, from driving hot rods flat-out to covering events and races all over the world for TorqTalk, Hot Rod Magazine, and others. He’s been a friend to us and the sport for decades, and it was fun to catch up with him and chat for a few in the Nugget Casino parking lot car show.
The January auctions broke all kinds of records this year, with Mecum and Barrett-Jackson grossing over $420 Million in just two events! Couple this with the amazing amount of super high-end hot rods and customs at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA, and it’s easy to see that enthusiasm for classic cars is at an all-time high! Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke and Kevin Oeste cover all this plus Automotive Trivia, and some sneak peeks into some new projects Kevin is working on with the SCTA and his encounter with Billy Gibbons and the CadZZilla project. There’s even a cameo from Kelle! It’s a really big show!
