You DO need that car!  We explain why along with trivia and more on the V8 Radio Podcast!

 

Passion projects might be more important than you think.

Our friend Chip Foose is on record saying that "nobody needs these cars", inferring that a custom car is not essential to life like food or water.   However, on this episode of the V8 Radio Podcast, Kevin Oeste and Mike Clarke discuss the realities of how important cool cars are to passionate enthusiasts and how they are often ingrained in us from childhood.  And don't worry, they didn't forget the automotive trivia and other nonsense, either!
