Welcome to Throwin’ Wrenches, the automotive podcast that gets the best guests! Okay, so we’re trying that catchphrase on for size. Don’t worry, we’ll probably change it in the next episode.

Sponsors By now, you’re probably familiar with Mr. Gabriel Casey after his world-fam...

Here’s a few highlights, but you’ll want to download the full episode to get caught up.

A fast car with a sticky set of tires doesn’t make someone a better driver. Spend a few minutes searching YouTube and you’ll find proof in the form of BMWs that drive off a twisty California mountain road, or Ford Focus STs that drift into a hill. There are much better ways to sharpen your skills behind the wheel, but there’s none more attainable than a ¾ mile road course set up by a local volunteer-run organization such as the Cha...

Spring is in the air, and so is that “new car smell” air freshener you bought at the local auto parts store. Don’t worry, we’re not judging you. As soon as the nice weather arrives, most of us start thinking about cleaning our rides and washing off all of that caked-on winter salt and road grime. For those of us with hobby vehicles that never see such harsh conditions, we eagerly bust them out of their automotive cocoons to begin t...

Eric and Daryl class up the place by inviting our friend Regan on the show for some insight into the automotive industry. We also talk about the Springfield origins of fried meat on a stick along Route 66, dream of “BroDozering” a Rivian pickup, and we break down why the Oldsmobile Quad 4 engine was the pinnacle of automotive engineering. This show is another 90-minute wonder, but it’s chock-full of fun, so you’ll definitely have t...

As the late great Joan Rivers would ask…  “Can we talk?  Can we talk?” The answer on this latest episode of Throwin Wrenches is “YES! We know how to talk”.  As a matter of fact… We take this show into the unrealized depths of 90 minutes! We are not the Joe Rogan show… But we can assure you that we had 90 minutes of car news to share!  So much so, that we talked about doing more shows to keep up! On the show: What are Throwin Wrench...

Since Studio A is getting a set of whitewalls and fuzzy dice, the dynamic duo returns to Studio B  for a show about the usual automotive topics. We’ve got a projects update, customer tales, Daryl whines about his injured back and Eric serenades us with an obscure Queen song about mechanophilia. (Blame Roger Taylor for that one, not the legendary frontman Freddie Mercury… even though his last name also relates to a car.) There’s ple...
