Aaron Gold -one of our funniest and most frequent guests- returns, and he brought a friend, automotive YouTuber Brian Makse. V12 vs V8s, spool valves, crashing, forbidden cars; this episode has it all. Aaron has been in this business for decades, and always has an interesting take on a car, a few strange interests (usually featuring diesel) and a bevy of odd voices to help paint a picture. Brian has been talking about cars on YouTube for 4 years, and tested a mess of performance cars. The guys start off the show comparing new Astons to new Bentleys, leading to a debate of V8s vs V12s. Later in the show Brian talks about suspension damping and spool valves, the Chevrolet ZR2, forbidden cars, the 25 year ban, near-misses in racing, and a lot more.

After leaving radio to work in the middle of Australia, Manuel Carrillo III found a job around hs favorite thing: cars. He writes for a large number of websites, films and photograhs, but his focus right now is restoring the Porsche 911 he was driven home in after he was born. Yanked from cluttered garage, he dragged it to SEMA in its current state; a car that was honest about where it had been. He talks to us about the car's journey, and a broken Mustang that seems impossible to fix. Other topics include the duration of a Safari build, the upcoming Radwood 2 show, cheap 90s cars, and how to make $150,000 into $80,000. Check out Manuel's content here: YT: Brands:

Anthony Lahner started his career painting wheels in alleys, but now he runs a company that can restore or perfect the look of any car. We interview him in the second half of the show, after Matt and Zack talk about drifting and bad car movies.He brought Matt's R32 GT-R back to factory-fresh and upholstered the interior of his Mustang, but he's done far more than that, from cutting his teeth working at a luxury service center to painting out of a van. He's learned which luxury cars are cheap, what causes some weird Ferrari problems, how to protect you car, and has some funny stories about the early days.In addition, Zack took his E46 drifting- finally- and saw some interesting match ups at the track, so we compare the drifting dynamics of an M3, a 240SX, and the other things we've slid. Topics also include a hilariously-bad car movie from the 80s, why gasoline gets hot, and plenty more. EXOTICAR:
