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!

"The best automotive podcast out there. I really enjoy the knowledge that the hosts have. I also love that they share information on their own projects. It’s fun to listen to real car guys who don’t have unlimited budgets and still try to get the job done”
My favorite podcast!

Love Kevin and Mike! These guys are entertaining and genuine. Bravo. Cant wait for the next show
Running on all cylinders
Mike and Kevin share a deep well of knowledge with their listeners when it comes to classic cars. I could see my brother playing along with their trivia questions in my head. (He would love this show!!!) It doesn't hurt that both of these guys have great, broadcast quality voices. Kevin actually sounds a lot like Nick Offerman who plays Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation. Keep up the excellent work!!!
Really good show but...............

Hi guys, I think you have an excellent program that I often listen to when working in my own shop at night, but might I make a suggestion??? Please level the volumes OR make Mike sit at least a foot away from the mic.
Problem is that with normal conversation, all is good and then Mike laughs or makes a pronouncement and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!
I know it might be trivial, it becomes a real irritant after a show or two.
