The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 125 – Pebble Batch

C&T 125

Cam, Brad, and Jason are joined by multi-time guest Manuel for an excellent hour of discussion and revelry. Three of the four were recently in Monterey for Car Week, and met up at the infamous Pebble Beach Concours. This particular episode is a lot of fun, as the events were all spectacular, and there was plenty to talk about. Enjoy listening along, hopefully you learn something.

This week’s topics include: Drinks, Werks Reunion, Acura, Mazda, Infiniti, Fiat, Jeep, Concourso Italiano, The Quail, Supercars On Cannery, Concours D’LeMons, Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Porsche, Cam’s dumbass motorcycle’s dumbass fuel tank, Auction recaps, Maserati’s new SUV, and lots more. We all had a great time, except Cam, because he didn’t go. He thought life would be better with a Harley. What a chump.

I’m in Santa Cruz this weekend for Porsche 912 Rendezvous. Something that is ostensibly “work”. I go every year, and it’s always a great time. This year over 50 cars are attending. Anyhow, our car show is this weekend in Canepa’s parking lot, so we dropped by Canepa this afternoon after lunch just to check things out on a non-busy day. This shot was taken from the catwalk around the top of their workshop. I’m never one for a Countach, they just don’t do anything for me, but to see such a complex design stripped down to the bare essentials makes me a little bit happy.

The DFL Show: Episode 7 – Fabio Has A Six Pack

Just Brad, Eric, and Patrick this weekend. Brad was at Monterey Car Week, Patrick was in Germany on a trip with Toyota, and Eric was stuck at home keeping score for LeMons Rally. NASCAR had a rain delay, IndyCar had a rain delay, MotoGP had rain all weekend. DTM, WRC, and some stuff from Bonneville rounds out our race recaps.

Patrick went to see the VLN race at the N-ring, but doesn’t remember who won. Brad saw some vintage races, and went to see a Porsche at Pebble Beach. Eric has a quiz. We each talk about our favorite liveries, a bit about the shemozzle in GTD right now, Ben Keating bought a Riley/Ave. IMSA confirms grandfathering for CTSCC. We give our awards, chat about upcoming races, and get out with just a 2-hour short episode for you.

Oh, but Patrick had interviews with Toyota drivers Mike Conway and Alex Wurz. They are VERY interesting, go listen to them!

2016 Concours D’LeMons Photo Gallery

While in Monterey for car week, I attended the Concours D’LeMons. Yes, that’s a stretch MG, and it’s great. That car really set the tone for the event, and I couldn’t stop laughing about it. There was also a porn-sponsored race car, a Hella Shitty Bricklin (crowned later that day as Worst In Show), a bunch of home-brew monsters, LeMons Rally finishers, and Wayne Carini’s silly rusty Karmann Ghia. This event is always great, and I’m glad I went. Check out 90 photos after the jump.

This weekend was another mostly racing-lacking weekend, but we’ll make the best of it and tell you all about the stuff that happened anyhow. Some NASCAR, some IndyCar, a bit of WRC and MotoGP. Toss in a DTM race, SuperFormula, and VLN, and it’s enough to chat about for a bit. I was at the Monterey Historics this weekend for a bit, so I’ll share a bit from that as well.

Read along to see what good stuff happened this weekend. Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse. Just be aware of the fact that this post is filled with spoilers. Giant carbon-fiber, multi-element, DRS-equipped, Gurney-flapped, Spoilers! Oh, and in case you missed it, I am also hosting a new motorsport podcast these days…

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 124 – New Vinyl

C&T Graphic

This week Jason comes back, but we make it a short one, as we all have a bunch of stuff to do this week. Jason and Brad are both recovering from Monterey Pre-Reunion weekend, and preparing for the full swing of Monterey Car Week. Jason talks a bit about his loaner JEEP. Brad’s picking up a 924 Turbo hood for a friend, carrying it on the roof for a couple hours. Jason was a guest on the Driving While Awesome podcast (listen to our show first, then go listen to theirs…). Then we discuss vinyl tops on new cars, and make a few auction action predictions for the upcoming Monterey auctions this weekend. What do you think the R5 Turbo 2, 512 BBi, MC12, and D-type will sell for? Put your own predictions in the comments. I’ll send a decal to the person who is closest.

Quick Pic: Elva Is King Of The Corkscrew

Bradley Brownell August 18, 2016 Quick Pics

I took this picture at the top of the Corkscrew last weekend at the Monterey Motorsports Pre-Reunion weekend. It’s one of my favorites, as it shows just the kind of elevation change that Laguna Seca is known for. This rare little Porsche 4-cam powered Elva is one of twenty built and it’s being thrashed as it should be. That’s what I love about vintage racing, and this event in particular. The driver is about to drop 110 feet in a second or two, and everything is under control. This was pretty early in the morning, and you can still see the fog as it’s burning off in the distance. Love it.

Down to just three hosts this time, Brad and Eric and Duncan discuss this week’s racing. There was a bit of NASCAR, some PWC, BTCC action, Trans Am, Speed Weeks, etc. Brad was at Laguna Seca all weekend checking out vintage cars, while Eric was in the NorthEast judging at LeMons (GP du Lac Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg), so neither of us saw much traditional racing. Duncan watched the NASCAR bit.

Brad sat his butt ON the corkscrew. JD Davison received a 1-race ban. Ben Keating is driving a not-Viper next year. Eric has a short quiz. We talk awards, and we discuss next week’s races.

This weekend there wasn’t really that much racing to shout about, but enough to discuss. Also, NASCAR raced in the rain! Personally, I was out at Laguna Seca attending the Monterey Motorsport Pre-Reunion, which is essentially a test day for next weekend’s real deal big show. It was a good time, as I got to hang out with our own Jason Connor and the guys from the Driving While Awesome podcast. There were some pretty spectacular cars there, and it was a good time. Unfortunately that means I missed watching most of the racing that was actually going on this weekend. I missed PWC from Utah. I missed the NASCAR XFinity race from Mid Ohio. I missed Moto GP. I missed Micra Cup. I’m sad about it, but not too sad.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 123 – The Fun Button W/ Aaron France

C&T Graphic

Jason was out with a massive migraine this week, he was planning on being there, but just couldn’t deal with lights and sounds. We had a listener and brakes systems engineer for a major OEM as a guest on the show this week, who goes by the name of Aaron France. Aaron is an avid listener and question-asker on many shows, so we figured if he had that many questions, he’d make a good guest. We were right, he was pretty good. Everyone wins.

This week’s topics include: We spend far more time than we should arguing about car detailing and whether or not it’s worth it (it’s not, IMHO. – BB), The 3 D’s, Being content with content, Cam has a BMW update, our guest talks about Corvette stuff, we chat about tuner cars, and answer a few listener questions. As usual, we had a lot of fun recording this one. Just a few car guys sitting around talking about cars.
