B Squad Hotrod: 4 guys building cars and hot rods

Join the four amateurs: Steve (Woodchuck), Brad (Hollywood), Colt (Train) and Nick (Lefty) here at B Squad Hotrod. We're just a bunch of amateurs getting to the meat and bolts of restoring and repairing real cars for our enjoyment. And hopefully for your education and enjoyment. Because educating us...that's impossible.

Episode 0015 - Not so new, Not so project cars

B squad Talks recent car purchases.  Lefty gives a review of some Cornwell ratchets and Sprocket joins in the recording fun.  As per usual, we stay on topic much the same way a room full of two-year-olds would.

Episode 0014 - Car Systems and Parts 101

Train Hollywood and Woodchuck stumble through all the parts of a car without Lefty.  This will be a base for future episode in which we get into these topics in detail. 

 

While this is probably review for many of you Hot Rod Heroes out there, we thought it important to share for those who don't know and review for us.

Because B Squad can hardly remember where they were supposed to be instead of working on the car in the garage.
