We had an awesome party at the LA Auto Show, complete with shrimp-barrow, and it was topped off with a live podcast taping featuring the great Zack Klapman from The Smoking Tire. Zack was the cocktail sauce on the unshelled prawn that was our event and his story of smashing his Subaru into a snowbank was the little squeeze of lemon.
It’s Wednesday, so that means it’s time for another The Autopian Podcast. There’s a good chance you’re hitting the road today or tomorrow to see grandma and fill up on pie/theories about how the current flu strain was accidentally leaked from a lab that was trying to develop a new nacho cheese sauce for the Boston Bruins. Listen to this, instead.
“I have a flat brim hat and a Subaru. I got this!”
Those are Zack’s famous last words before heading out into a snow emergency, expecting to just waltz through it because he was driving a Subaru.
This starts a whole series of stories from Jason, Beau, and David explaining how they’ve flipped various cars. Unsurprisingly, Jason has somersaulted a Beetle end-over-end and Beau has tipped a Mochet Velocar! The only one who didn’t have at least one good car crash was David, but his cars all come pre-crashed.
In addition to the mayhem, the guys talk about the best cars of the LA Auto Show and we learn how Zack Klapman got started in the industry. He also drops a little preview of what’s coming from Zack and The Autopian (together)! All this, plus Jason walks you through the microcars you may have missed if you couldn’t make it out to the show.
