V8 Radio Barn Find Dust

A star MIG welder is born!

Welding can be a very rewarding skill, and it's often a necessary skill when restoring or modifying classic and Muscle Cars.   On this episode of V8 Radio, our esteemed Co-Host Mike Clarke recalls his experience learning how to MIG weld at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop as taught by Host Kevin Oeste on an HTP MIG 200 welder.  Mike and our mutual friend Paul came to the V8 shop for a visit, and left as changed men with mad welding skills!  Of course the trivia question is fun, and there's a new update on Mike's GTO engine as well, all on V8 Radio!

They also touch on a cool '77 Pontiac Trans Am that just went home after a visit to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for an engine replacement.   That's pretty routine in our shop, but the fact that the owners are twin 16 year old guys is not!  It's great to see younger people digging these kinds of cars.

As classic car enthusiasts, we know that sometimes things don't go the way we wish.   Parts wear out and break, new parts sometimes don't work right out of the box, and things that were once fixed can change with usage.    Although frustrating, it's just part of the joys of old car ownership.   On this episode, Mike and Kevin chat about how to handle things when they don't go smoothly.   There's also the usual trivia questions and goofy stories from our two "regular guy" hosts.
