Ep57 Andy from Boost, Booze, and BBQ

May 25th, 2020

Our plan to do a fuel injection heavy episode got sidetracked when we brought our new friend Andy Imhof from the boostboozebbq.com podcast on to chat. We still talked about fuel systems but got sidetracked a bit. Then the debauchery got even better at the aftershow, which can be found at patreon.com/wheelinradio. Make sure to listen to this one!

Ep54 The Conception of American Motors

April 27th, 2020

May 1st marks the anniversary of the founding of the American Motors Corporation. Most off-roaders can tell you that the Jeep brand, and by extension the Eagle brand, flourished under AMC leadership, making some of the most iconic 4x4s ever. Lesser known, however, is the long journey spanning over 70 years that led up to the creation of the company that gave us the CJ7, The CJ8, and the XJ platform just to name a few. Take a listen as we diagram the story of the American Motors Corporation.
