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 0023: Winging it

Have you ever winged a repair?  B Squad discusses winging it and also the B squad moment of the week - "300 feet of chain."

We also have a mountain of email from all of you Hot Rod Heroes!  Thank you.  Our podcast has reached world wide stature.  "We're kinda a big deal."  Okay we're not a big deal but we do feel like real podcasters.

No product this week.  It's been a long winter with forced cryostasis of the projects.

[Bonus] B-Squad Bonus Episode 1

This is a Bonus Episode.  We are talking about something other than cars.  Please let us know if you like it, hate it or otherwise don't care.

hosts@bsquadhotrod.com

In classic Orange Cone Re-Route Fashion Lefty takes us in to uncharted territory by asking about our favorite firearms.  We put aside cars in this bonus episode and talk about other things that are on the boys of B-Squad's minds.

Except for the part about turning Lefty's Hudson into a show piece with hardware in the back.
