The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 55 – Trash Talk


We’ve hit the double nickel with a shorter than usual episode 55. Cam, Brad, and Jason are at it again with some audio high jinks. It’s mostly in good fun, and only partially in good taste, so go give it a listen.

This episode’s topics include: Brad’s recording remotely from a Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and PHEV launch*, The D (No drinks, no desk, just driving music this week), Cameron’s in a foul mood and pulls very few punches**, New Camaro, a discussion of journalist conduct on press launches, Carlos Lago leaving Motor Trend, and probably other things. I had to leave early to get to dinner, so I missed the last bit. It’ll be just as much a surprise to you as it is to me!

*Hyundai launch embargo stands until the 26th, you can read all about it then!
** The views and opinions expressed by Cam are not necessarily the views of Hooniverse, the Cammed & Tubbed podcast as a whole, or literally anyone else. He was in a bad mood, I guess.

Hooniverse Podcast: Episode 104 – Matt D’Andria on Paul Newman


On this week’s episode of the Hooniverse Podcast:

1. Matt D’Andria from CarCast graces us with his presence, as well as the spectral energy of Paul Newman: D’andria has spent the better part of the past two years working with Adam Carolla on Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman. And it hits the Internet’s on-demand services on May 22nd: iTunes, Hulu, Google Play. (It’s already available on Xbox, Amazon, and iTunes.)

There’s no excuse not to watch it, then. I did. And it’s fantastic.

The documentary does a great job portraying Paul Newman as the greatest American who ever lived short of the guy who invented the NACA Duct. We basically conclude that Newman must’ve not paid some parking tickets or he once hugged a puppy slightly too hard.

2. Producer Chris and Matt talk about Corvettes, because Corvettes are neat. Especially the Z06.

3. Blake “ZZZap!” Rong agonizes over what car to replace the Miata, and nearly makes a deal on the spot…

An Audio Guide To The Indianapolis 500


This is it. This is the Indy 500. It’s probably one of the most revered races in all of motorsport. Right up there with the Daytona 500, the Monaco Grand Prix (also this weekend), the 24 Hours of Le Mans, etc. It’s the second oldest racing event in the country, with only Pikes Peak being older. And on top of all of that, this is the 99th running, making it pretty damn important. 33 cars will take the starting flag this Sunday, and everyone and their brother will be watching, either in attendance at the circuit, or on television, obviously. It’s a big deal. It’s a lot like the Kentucky Derby, even people who don’t care about horse racing watch that race. So, here’s why you should be watching, and why you should care, and everything you need to know in order to follow along easily. Eric Rood and I can bring you up to speed with this audio guide. Just for fun, we also give our predictions of who might take that win after 500 miles of racing.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 53 – Let Them Eat Cake


The big-ole 53. We made it. Another full-length episode for you folks to indulge in. Cam, Brad, and Jason are here again with a brand new bag of tricks. I had a lot of fun recording this episode, and I hope you enjoy listening to it.

This episode’s topics include: The 3 D’s (Drinks, Desk, and Driving music), a recap of this week’s Project Car State of the Union, Jason gets hassled by Greenpeace (while driving a hybrid), New Jersey bans Coal Rollers, Magnus Walker debuts a new video, and we all say our piece on the passing of the legendary Denise McCluggage. Somehow Paul Blart keeps popping up in conversation.

Next week I will be recording from a brand new Hyundai launch in SoCal. If you have any questions about the car, let me know what I should be keeping an eye out for.

LET THAT UKELELE RIP, CAM! Let’s start the podcast!

Hooniverse Podcast: Episode 103 – The Dentist’s Car


On this week’s episode of the Hooniverse Podcast:

  • Producer Chris Hayes faces his impending duty of attending his sister’s wedding, and shuffling family members to sunny Temecula, which: 1.) is not Tehachapi, 2.) is, for all intents and purposes to an Angeleno, approximately the same distance from Chris’s house to the moon, and 3.) considered part of Californian “wine country,” which any part of California north of Jumbo’s Clown Room can really be considered “wine country.” There’s a lot of wine here.
  • Blake “Clever Middle Initial Gag Here” Rong contemplates buying a classic car, which is a thoroughly sound financial decision that any young man should undergo immediately and without further thought. 240Zs, old Benzes, etc. Chris, always the voice of reason, attempts to talk Blake out of this, but the sheer force of madness is too much to take. In his state of delirium, and in his desire to always support “the underdog,” no matter how inconceivably foolish, he even begins extolling the virtues of the Porsche 924! He—wait, what the hell? What was he/I thinking? THAT. IS. A. TERRIBLE. DECISION. TO. MAKE. Oh, and he drives a big ol’ Benz of some sort.
  • Jeff Glucker drives to the moon.

Hooniverse – The Dentist’s Car

Enjoy Episode 103 of the Hooniverse Podcast, brought to you by this guy, who’s selling a Porsche 924 Turbo that has everyone on Twitter involuntarily committing sinful 1980s lust. The true car collectors of the future are the ones who dare to be different by sinking entirely too many trust funds into rehabbing early experiments in turbocharging. For those about to rock, we salute you.

The big ol’ Benz in question. Hear about it on the Hooniverse Podcast!

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 52 – Sell-ica



Welcome back to the land of C & T.  We’ve got a jam-packed episode for you this week. Your favorite car guys, Cam, Brad, and Jason, are back to wax poetic about almost everything. Keep listening after the episode for a special interview with sportsball player (he pitches for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and for the record, I still think its ridiculous that the team’s name translates to the the angels angels.) and racing team owner, Mr. C.J. Wilson. He debuted a new race car, so I had a nice phone conversation with him about it. He’s a cool guy!

This episode’s topics include: The 3 D’s (Drinks, Desk, and Driving music), we all have some project car updates, Cam sold his Celica, Brad’s Boxster melt-down has turned into an Audi melt-down, and Jason is making progress on his Eleanor project.
