Chattanooga, Tenn. (September 7, 2017) – Rev’n, Luken Communications’ automotive broadcast offering, has further expanded its over-the-top availability by launching its channel on the Roku® streaming platform.

This episode of V8 Radio is jammed with stories as Mike Clarke and Kevin Oeste cover the 2017 Goodguys
PPG Nationals in Columbus, Ohio, and the level of cars competing in the Street Machine Of The Year competition. They also discuss the merits of "survivor" cars versus restored, and Kevin's longtime appreciation of CARtoons Magazine.
Of course, there are several tangents stemming from the trivia question of the day along with other nonsense.
This is a favorite Tex Avery cartoon called "One Cab's Family" and we were always glued to the TV set whenever it came up in rotation. There is no doubt that the scene where the little cab turns into a speedy hot rod left a mark on us growing up! This cartoon also seems to have inspired the Pixar "Cars" series and is just as entertaining. Now it's back online to enjoy again! We seem to recall another similar story about an airplane... we'll have to look for that one, too!
