Look, we’re going to come clean here, we haven’t had time to do our history homework for this episode, so we’ve relegated to telling a few stories from our automotive past. We’re calling this segment Backfired since this isn’t just stupid car stories anymore. We’ve got a few tall tales from random suspension failures while hoofing down lanes to being in a police car chase with the roles completely reversed.
We know that feeling when you look at all the hard earned your car is sucking out of your bank account and you wander by a dealer forecourt telling you a few bob a month will see you in something new. Stop right there. We explain why car finance is a trap and play a little game of “Here’s what you could’a bought” which should have you running to the classifieds ready to invest in a classic. Before we get into that though, we reminisce a little with a new segment of Backfired and flash forward to a possible dystopian future of manufacturer charging networks.
