PWN-172 BMW X1 Revisit

by on Jan.18, 2013, under Podcast

I am driving a 2013 BMW X1 4 door crossover mini SUV. The steering wheel and seat heat works very well, once you learn where to find it. I want the new BMW Gavausoirre! Mr. Anderson has shaved his head! Some iPad Mini talk and I make a fuss about Arthur the AmeriNZ’ blog. Justin Bieber on GuysWithiphones.

PWN-171 Nubbles and Wiggles

by on Jan.10, 2013, under Podcast

Driving about like a maniac I send a couple of quick thank yous to some podcasters. Keep your eyes out for the Pride 48 2012 Video from the Las Vegas festivities, appearing in a feed near you. Your quiz today is: What is the difference between a nubble and a wiggle? Avid golfers out in the pouring rain. My credit is bad and I’m unable to pay my way. Look for the Car Geek Talk Freakout on the Pink Wheelnuts Garage on Pride 48 LIVE on January 11 at 7:00pm Eastern with me and Epilonius.

PWNG-020 Driving a Moldy Pickle

by on Jan.01, 2013, under Garage, Podcast

PWN Garage DoorMuch to my surprise I found this episode kicking around in my to-do pile. I guess I forgot to edit and post this by the end of 2012. So SURPRISE! It’s the last Garage episode of 2012!

This show starts with a pizza recipe and moves on to complaints about iTunes and mice. Some of the general discussion might seem a bit out of date, but we DO discuss some good car topics, such as:

What to do about a badly scratched windshield

Jump starting a car :

Should you warm up your car before driving it in the deep dark cold of winter?

Are men of the 2000’s no longer interested in tinkering with their cars?
