I was happily invited to yet another podcast interview, this time to have some fun with the guys at the Drive Radio Show. It’s hosted by Brett Hatfield, auto journalist, Auction Analyst for Sports Car Market, and editor of readthedriven.com, plus Corey Pratt of Craving Cars from YouTube, and Mark “Catfish” Groves, radio veteran and owner of Magnificent Cowlick Media.

They wanted to talk to me about buying a restoration shop in your mid-50s, what to look for in a restoration shop, and what I won’t work on. But it quickly turned into stories of how I got started in racing, some of the fun I’ve had, and eventually devolved into the biggest mistake I ever made (in a car.)

The best part? If you listen closely at the end of the show, I get a “That guy is hilarious” comment after I signed off. Works for me.

Enjoy
-John

It Drives Like an Alfa

I met my racing and paddock partner John Wheeler almost twenty years ago when I first started Vintage Historic racing. I was trying to figure this whole thing out and he was my coach and mentor. The most important thing he ever told me when I bemoaned my slow times...
