Cam and Brad and Jason are all gathered around the microphones for another episode of CnT. We talk about the 3 D’s, Rob Siegel’s new book, a new #ConfiguratorFun iteration (build your favorite BMW 3 Series), some Pikes Peak jibber jabber, brief discussion of the Panamera launch, and a WHOLE LOT OF LISTENER QUESTIONS! We also have a couple of giveaways this month where you can earn a Porsche 1976 tech manual that Jason bought at a swap meet. One of them is an art challenge, the other is a trivia contest. He also did NOT buy a Tamiya Tyrrell 6-wheeler, because he’s a dumbo.
Even without a guest this week, we had a lot of fun among the three of us. Brad is going to be a guest on the Top Dead Centered podcast this weekend, so keep an eye out for that, and Cam is now a frequent guest on the Cleveland Moto podcast, so go check that out as well. Thanks for listening guys and gals!

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 117 – For A Hundred Dollars More
First, thank you, because Sublime is the worst, and there are few things that will get me to change the station quicker than to even mention them.
Now, with the new Panamera, it’s pretty substantially improved, in very subtle ways. It’s like the difference between Bon Scott’s AC/DC and Brian Johnston’s AC/DC. Mind you, I still hugely dig the old one, but it was a bloated looking car in ways the new one isn’t.
I also don’t really see the point in looking down on the E30 M3’s four cylinder. The thing saw tons of legitimate motorsports use, and as much as BMW’s heavily associated with straight sixes, at the time, they were just over a decade removed from the 2002 which never sported more than a four, and cemented BMW’s reputation. At the same time, I’m not buying into the E30 tax when E36s and 46s are plenty affordable. The only thing that gives me pause about the E36 is that they seem to suffer from the early 90s Euro biodegradable curse, and definitely seem to rust a little more (although I suppose Cleveland isn’t that different a climate from Toronto, so if they could survive there, there could be some decent ones around here).Loading…
There was actually quite a few turbo American cars from the 80’s. Apart from the SVO and Omni GLH mentioned, you also had the Thunderbird Turbo Coupe, Ford EXP turbo, and the Merkur Xrt4i was sort of American. Chrysler used the turbo 2.2L in nearly every K car based vehicle they built, from the Daytona coupe, Caravelle sedan, LeBaron convertible, and the Caravan mini van.
GM was actaully a bit of a pioneer with turbos, starting with the turbo Trans Ams in the early 80’s. There was also the Grand National, the turbo Sunfire, captive imports like the Sprint and Spectrum turbos, and the W-body Grand Prix, which had a 3.1L turbo V6 built by Mclaren.Loading…
