Everyone Needs A GSX-R VW Bug HotRod

“It runs, though, don’t it?” is exactly what you’d expect to hear from someone who just ripped through a suburban neighborhood in a tube chassis bug with a high-power superbike engine. Especially when they pull it into a shop that appears to house some kind of tank-treaded hot rod as well. Hudlow Axle is based in Georgia, and they appear to be crafting some of the wildest machines on that side of the Mississippi.  

Everyone and their brother needs one of these Lilliputian machines in their garage if only to brighten their day every once in a while. The world would be a better place if everyone could take their four-wheeled Gixxer VeeDub out to rip a few small displacement burnouts on their way to work. I’m usually allergic to things with a lot of power, but this thing I can really get behind. It’s wicked. 

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 206 – Dancing On The Sand

The original C&T duo are back for this episode. No guest, no filler, just Cam and Brad. Cam got his Stanza (Tony Stanza) up to snuff for a car show, where he won the Judges Choice award (only in Ohio, am I right?). Brad drove down to Los Angeles to help Manuel get his Stork running (spoiler, it runs), then on his way back home to Reno, stopped in to Vegas for . Fun was had.

Here is our Question Tuesday episode with Manuel Carrillo III, recorded last week in sunny and humid LA. This was the night before we got the Stork running again.

And, in case you haven’t had enough of us, Brad was a guest on the Motoraffair podcast, too!

New Kid On The Block: An OG Gymkhana Experience

Ken Block’s original Gymkhana Practice video was like capturing lightning in a bottle. It was a viral hit among even folks who knew nothing about cars, and with budgets in the millions and huge closed-down city street locations, none of the later videos could evoke the feelings that the first one did. When I saw that video all those years ago, I was in awe of what had been done. It was creative and new and exciting. 

Today, I feel those same emotions about “Dream it, build it, shred it” video here. It has apparently been out for a couple months, but I just stumbled across it on YouTube this morning. It’s only four minutes long, but there is a ton of creativity involved, and shots that range from ‘sketchy as all hell’ to ‘stellar production value’, which gives it that home-built kind of feel that more videos need. The opening wall-ride and massive digger burnout to close the video are two of the most creative car antics I’ve ever seen. And that Subaru 2.5 RS is raging! 

Tyler even says outright that this video was inspired by what Block has done, “What Ken Block has brought to the automotive world through his videos has inspired and influence an entire generation and car culture. I decided I wanted to make my own video but really had no idea how difficult it would end up being.” The final product, filmed in two different locations over five 16-hour shoot days, is pretty damn cool. Keep it up, Tyler, just …

Rob Siegel’s New Book Is The Best Bad Influence

Ran When Parked: How I Resurrected A 15-Year-Dead 1977 Porsche 911S and How You Can, Too

Rob Siegel is a super human. Earlier this year he embarked on a trip to purchase, revive, and road trip 1000 miles home, a BMW 2002 tii that had been sitting for decades. Not only was the trip successful, but then he completed an entire novel about the experience, complete with lots of technical information for you to do it yourself, and self-published such an account in this amazing piece of literature. 

I’d just finished Rob’s new totally awesome inspirational book when my phone rang. Good friend Manuel Carrillo III was on the other end of the line. Manuel has recently embarked on an adventure to revive his father’s old 1977 Porsche 911S that has been sitting for over 15 years. Being not quite as mechanically inclined as I am, the call was a request for assistance in the project. Perhaps still high on the exuberance and bravado of Rob’s book, or perhaps influenced by how ‘easy’ Rob made his adventure sound. I shouted “All I need is one day” into the phone and started packing my bags.

The best way to review this book is to take its practices to heart, so that’s what I did. I’ll say right now that you should definitely read it, and you should definitely use these tips to revive something that “ran when parked”.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 204 – Project Stork W/ Manuel Carrillo III

This episode of the Cammed & Tubbed Podcast is brought to you by Manuel Carrillo III and his Project Stork 1977 Porsche 911S. Cam and Brad and Manuel sit around to talk project cars, road trips, and more. Cam recently did some work to his Stanza. Brad went on a press trip to drive the new Volkswagen Tiguan. We have fun here at C&T.

The DFL Show: Episode 57 – Porsche Homer

Eric, Stef, and Brad are all talking racing this week. We recorded at a weird time, so we didn’t have a full cast. This week’s episode is all about the 24 hours of Le Mans. We give a recap of the race, a few of our thoughts, and some experiences that we had during the 24. It was an awesome race this year, and if you missed it, please go watch at least some highlights programs or something. Well worth it!. If you don’t want the race spoiled, maybe hold off on listening to this episode.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 203 – Long Nights, Impossible Odds

Sorry for being tardy with this one, folks. We had some technical difficulties on Cam’s end, for some reason his recording didn’t sync properly, so we had to make some funny edits. Hopefully it’s a seamless listen for you.

This week, we’re joined once again by our friend W. Christian Mental Ward, one of the greatest dudes in the car world. We talk about everything ranging from his recent Mercedes breakdown to photographer safety to Radwood recaps. Cam recently picked up a Nissan Stanza, and went down to Cincinnati for a concours. It’s a packed show, so stick around for the whole thing, will ya?

Also, some folks who have been listening for a long time might notice that we never released an “Episode 1”. Well, our first handful of episodes were garbage, and we didn’t start releasing them until Episode 8. That is, until now. To commemorate our 200th episode, Cam and I dug deep into the hard drives of our computers to come up with this stinky mess of an episode. The audio quality is trash, so listeners beware. The more things change, the more they stay the same. There’s a lot of irony in this episode, depending on how much you know about us as a show.

The DFL Show: Episode 56 – The Short One

We’re rapidly closing in on our first year anniversary of this show, and we couldn’t have made it this far without Redusernab and our listeners, so thank you for sticking with us through all of this.

This week we’re talking, well, mostly about Le Mans. We discuss some other stuff, like photographer safety (again), Rally Italia, NASCAR at Pocono, Canadian Grand Prix, Alonso, and a whole lot more. We managed to get this one down to just about an hour, but I’m not sure that will be a regular thing. Hope you like it this time, though.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 200 – Gnarly & Stoked

When we started this show more than three years ago, we never would have imagined a scenario where we would have gained quite this many listeners, or frankly lasted this many episodes. Through this podcast, Cam and I have gained an appreciation for each other, and we’ve been allowed the opportunity to speak at length with some really interesting automotive enthusiasts. Here’s hoping for another 200 great episodes. 

We recorded this episode live at Radwood and had a blast interviewing some of the coolest car show attendees of any car show ever. It’s still a little too much to process, even almost a week later, but the episode speaks for itself, so give it a listen. 

The second episode this week was a mega-sode that both Cam and Tub attended, working with the guys from Driving While Awesome! (in fact we recorded from Art’s dining room) and Clutchkick Podcast. This was a lot of fun, and we had the best weekend working with these miscreants to make Radwood a possibility. We discussed all of our favorite parts of the event, and Cam poked fun at Art for most of the show.

The DFL Show: Episode 55 – Ride Or Die

The joy of having six hosts is that when four of them are busy there can still be a show. Pat and Eric sit up close to their mics to discuss the week’s events. You’ll probably like it, you know, assuming you like our show. There is Indycar, IMSA, Formula 1, and Blancpain race recaps, Le Mans Test day, and plenty of news to discuss. I have it on good authority that this was a fun episode.
