We’re one year old! Put on a pointy hat, grab a luke warm sausage roll, and join us for a proper baller party in the podding shed. We’ve got plenty of car news to start, then Chris questions if stanced cars deserve the hate they get, Andrew points out how manufacturers with crap EV tech are throwing money at Formula E, and we mull over the issue of middle lane drivers. Is there a time sitting in the middle lane just makes sense, what’s the best way to deal with them? We also debate the leaked Jimmy photos and tackle accusations it appears rather too much like a little G-Wagon rip-off.
You want the truth about evil car companies? You can’t handle the truth about evil car companies! We open with the long and colourful backstory behind why people call Ford Explorers “Ford Exploders” and then Andrew is let out of his cage to say his piece on why he thinks Nissan has completely lost direction since the French got involved. Sort it out, the French! We then talk about the rather depressing news about Uber’s self driving cars and discuss the cost and availability of electric conversions for classics.
When this podcast hits episode 88, you’re going to see some serious shizzle. Actually no! We’re going to sizzle some shizzle right now, because we ain’t afraid of controversy. Deloreans aren’t cool, sorry not sorry. Land Rover now have 6-7 vehicles in their range. Madness. Car insurance is set to rise and you have to be an economics expert to understand why. Motoring Misogyny is back; stop saying women can’t drive, you sexist pigs. We also look at Faraday Future who seem to be employing ninjas rather than programmers.
A most momentous motoring moment! Ten, count’ em, episodes have now been coughed from our tea-soaked mouths into your beautiful little ears. Try to get that image out of your mind. We’re finishing off Stupid Car Stories this time with a few third-party tales for your pleasure. Car Fannery Corner is back again too. We know you can’t get enough of it. Andrew argues the case that driving around in your Picasso with your fog lights on is fooling nobody. Oh, and you know how insurance is stupid, just stupid? It’s only going to get worse.
