The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 71 – Mr. VanDerHorst Goes To Washington

C&T 71

At the risk of over-saturating the market with quality Cammed & Tubbed Podcast content, we’re hereby publishing our third episode of the week. In case you missed them, here’s Dadisode (an interview with my father), and the C ‘n T guys taking over the Hooniverse Podcast on Wednesday with special guest Stef Schrader. As much fun as those were, it was nice to settle into our normal routine and get a regular episode done and posted. Jason was busy elsewhere filming a very expensive Golf convertible, so we let him have the night off, back to just Cam and Brad for this week, just like the good ‘ol days.

This episode’s topics include: Cam’s Box of goodies, Cam went on a road trip with his girlfriend to Washington DC and we spend a lot of time talking about boring airplanes, Somehow we’ve gone 70 episodes without killing each other, Cam sold a bicycle, and “What is your personal tuning package?”

Podcast: Episode 119 – There Goes The Neighborhood

It’s Jeff, Chris, and Blake all back together again… Sort of…

We invited Stef Schrader of BlackFlag/Jalopnik fame to join us for this episode, and conversation ranged from her LeMons Volkswagen and 944s to the Audi S7 that Jeff is currently driving. Magnus Walker crashed his iconic #277, and we mourn the loss of racing driver and prior podcast guest Justin Wilson.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 70 – Dadisode


Horsepower and Chrome, my father (pictured on my right) always been a vintage car guy, mostly old Fords. His father, my grandfather, was also a car guy, owning a handful of fast and fun cars when my dad was a youngster. Aside from my little brother (pictured on my left), nobody else in our family has ever really shown an interest in cars. We share our interest in cars, but it’s always been a bit different. I’ve branched out to take an interest in all cars, while Dad’s focus remains mostly on Mustangs and old pick-em-up trucks.

Over the weekend of the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, I invited my father out for the weekend to partake in the festivities. He was probably the inspiration and genesis of my automotive enthusiasm. We’ve never really had a conversation like this before, so it was nice to sit down for an hour and talk about his life as a young car enthusiast. He’s never been a furrin’ car guy, so it was interesting seeing him at Monterey. “Is that a Ferrari?” No, that’s a Lotus. “Is that a Ferrari?” No, that’s an Acura. “Is that a Lamborghini?” No, that’s a Ferrari.

If I can leave you with some advice, interview your parents. Talk about their past. Chances are, there’s some good history there.

Monterey Car Week Photo Dump: Dad’s Best


As something of an experiment, before we departed for Monterey, I gave my father one of my spare cameras and told him to take pictures of the stuff he found interesting. He’s not exactly a photographer, and he’s mostly a domestic car guy, so this has potential to be interesting. It’s an insight into the mind of a person who’s never been to Monterey before, never been to a Porsche show before, never seen a LeMon before. Click through the link to see what he found fun.

Monterey Car Week Photo Dump: Auction Action


There were a good couple of handfuls of auctions going on in Monterey. You had the RM/Sotheby’s, Gooding & Co., Bonhams, Russo & Steele, Mecum, and some smaller ones dotted around the landscape. We walked around the Russo & Steele lot, ambled through a handful of the RM cars on the plaza, and attended the Gooding & Co. auction. It was interesting to see giant fistfulls of dollars being waved around for certain cars, and there wasn’t a single car in the lot that I could afford to bid on. It really makes you feel broke. You know, assuming you actually are broke.

Monterey Car Week Photo Dump: Vintage Racing Is Best Racing


The Monterey Motorsport Reunion, colloquially known as “The Historics”, was celebrating Ford’s glorious GT350 this year. Not the new one, though there were a bunch of those floating around because, you know, cross promotion and corporate synergy and all that jazz. Anyway, the OG GT350 has always been my favorite mustang, because it was the true ‘racer for the street’ kind of car. Many of them went on to compete in SCCA sanctioned events, and a few of them have a lot of stellar history. Anyway, while they were the main focus of the weekend at the track, and there was one session with almost 50 of them on track at once, there was plenty else to see. Everything from pre-war Grand Prix cars to more modern endurance racing sports cars. Click through to see what its all about.

Monterey Car Week Photo Dump: LeMons and P-Cars

Bradley Brownell August 22, 2015 Pebble Beach

IMG_3627Starting the day with a Relient Robin is hardly a bad way to start the day. I’ve seen only a handful of these in person, and I’m always geeked to see one. While Monterey Car Week is always about super cars and vintage racing and concours d’elegance, I always love showing up and seeing the weird and the oddball hoopties at Concours d’Lemons. Additionally, I’m a huge Porsche fan, so of course I had to attend the fantastic Werks Reunion. Both were fantastic, but for very different reasons. Click through to see what I mean. Dozens of mediocre photos await.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 69 – No Jokes

C&T 63

Look at how far we’ve come. *sniffle* I remember episode 68 like it was just last week… Oh… Right.

Cam’s gone visiting our nation’s capital, but the show must go on. Jason’s calling in from Texas, and Brad just got back from Monterey. LOTS to talk about!

This episode’s topics include: Two of the 3 D’s, The conclusion of last week’s game, More auction talk, Monterey like crazy, Jason talks Texas, Mercedes SL55 AMG, and Porsche 911 Turbo S. We have a lot of fun, talk a lot of cars, and don’t make a single 69 joke. That’s a big deal for us. I’m sure if Cam had been around, that wouldn’t be the case. But Jason and I, WE’RE PROFESSIONALS!

C&T 63

Jason’s back in town again, and back on the podcast again. We all feed off of each other to make for another great host-filled episode. What’s better than three friends talking cars?

This episode’s topics include: The 3 D’s, Monterey Auctions (Including a game where Cam and Jason guess the prices of upcoming sales. Links after the jump.), I look forward to a weekend away at Monterey with my father, Jason looks forward to his trip to Texas (And a Merc SL55 AMG rental), and we briefly touch on Top Gear on Amazon. If you want to get in on the game, submit your guesses below for the auctions, and we’ll compare to the actual prices next week.

Craigslist: VW Karmann-Ghia Baja Race Car


I’m not sure what keeps attracting me to these VW Karmann Ghias, but I just love them. Especially when they are prepared for racing, and especially especially when they were raced in-period. This particular buggy was built for and run in the 1979 and 1980 Baja 1000 events. VW KGs always looked a bit sportier than their beetle counterparts, and somehow even more visually appealing than Porsche’s 356 (Blaspehmy, I know. I’m supposed to be the resident Parsh guy…). There’s just something oh-so-wrong and oh-so-right about this sporty aircooled. It looks like it spends its weekends getting all jacked up on Mountain Dew and kicking some ass out in the desert! I want it, nay, I need it in my life.
