Podcast: Episode 85 – From McQueen to Matchmaking w/ guest Spike Feresten

Podcast-Image-Lead-85

Our guest this week is renowned comedy writer, car lover, and Fox talk-show all-star Spike Feresten. You may know him from his work providing the funny to shows like Saturday Night Live, Late Night and The Late Show with David Letterman, and Seinfeld, as well as many other programs.

Now Spike is using his love of cars to help folks find the perfect automotive match. His show is called Car Matchmaker, and it runs on Esquire. Feresten shows folks a variety of cars that he thinks would be the ideal fit for them, and this can range from a new Mercedes-Benz GLK to a Buick Grand National.

On the latest episode of Car Matchmaker, Spike’s brother turns to him for help. Feresten gets a helping hand from Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Fallon, Will Forte, and Seth Meyers in the first hour-long episode of Car Matchmaker. It’s a show that perfectly bridges the automotive gap between enthusiasts and normal folk who don’t obsess over all-things automotive.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… actually, if you cry you probably have some other issue, because you should just laugh. Hop the jump to listen in and make fun times with your ear holes.

Carlos Lago is a man who drives man amazing machines… but the one that is currently providing him the most thrills happens to be his own project Nissan 240SX. That’s because it has a LS3 crate motor that’s making 430 horsepower. His car is fast, and it enjoys going fast in both straight lines and sideways as well.

Podcast: Episode 80 – Diesel Driving Death March

Podcast-Image-Lead-80

Myself and Blake Z. Rong head into the Podcast Business Office to prattle on about cars. The main topic of the evening is Rong’s recent participation in the Audi A3 TDI Mileage Challenge. He was tasked with driving from Albuquerque, New Mexico to San Diego… on one tank of diesel fuel. That’s 824 miles of driving required. That’s damn near impossible, but two teams managed to pull it off.

From there the talk moves to the recent Motor Press Guild Track Day event, where I got seat time in a variety of vehicles out at Willow Springs.

Podcast-Image-Lead-77

Rather than take a week off, I decided to fire up the podcast-er-ator machine, plop on my couch, open a beer, and start rambling. This week I run the show solo. The topics range from my recent drive of the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster to the weekend I just spent with a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. Additionally, I talk about the recent Car and Driver Lightning Lap results while prattling away about all that I see that’s good about the Subaru Legacy 3.6R that I’m driving this week.

Click on through… to the other side (yeah).
