V8 Radio How It All Began

On this episode of V8 Radio, Mike Clarke and Kevin Oeste go back in time as Mike made the mistake of asking Kevin how he got started in this business. It started back in 1996 when Kevin and his buddy Paul Wieshuber embarked on the Hot Rod Power Tour in a car worthy of a junkyard, and it all went downhill from there.   Who'd have thought he would have landed a job with Hot Rod and eventually start V8TV and the V8 Speed & Resto Shop?   They also chat about the 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL 427 R-Code featured on Muscle Car Of The Week, discuss a V8TV track day, ratchet up the trivia questions, chat about Jim Wangers and Pontiac history, a story of David Freiburger taking a tumble, and have a few laughs on this episode.    Photos from the episode are below!
