Automotive News from insiders, outsiders and general people in the know. Hailing from the Midwest.
Episode 47 – Amigos, Anchovies and Autonomous Accidents
Welcome back to the automotive podcast that enjoys a nice bottle of chianti when we aren’t wrenching on a project or searching the internet for the latest automotive news. In fact, several former guests of Throwin’ Wrenches Podcast could be found in Eric’s kitchen in recent weeks, devouring most of an ibérico ham from Costco and drinking fine wine on a warm spring evening. It was a bacchanalian delight that will probably be repeated in the near future. We hope everyone is also happy and healthy this Spring, and is busy making plans for summer adventures with friends and family. More on some of our

Episode 44.5 –  Autocross 101 During a Pandemic with Dean Plumadore
It was easy enough to sit around and talk tech with Dean Plumadore on Episode 44, but we are here to talk about Autocross!  After all, Dean is the President of the Champaign County Sports Car Club,  a group that somehow defied the odds and completed a full season of racing during a worldwide pandemic.  It would have been so much easier to say “see us next year”. But taking it easy just isn’t their style. How did they pull off such a feat and what kinds of autocross action is in store for 2021? We use this entire episode to talk completely and totally

Episode 44 – The Return of Dino
Welcome to the automotive podcast that can really “yuck some yums.” Is that even a phrase? As heard in Episode 43, Daryl seems to think it is. Eric’s still on the fence. Regardless of the weekly catchphrase, we’re glad you’re here! https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/thebeerreport/TW44_-_Final.mp3 Episode Highlights In this episode, we’ve prepared an all-new interview with a familiar voice, and a topical conversation about something we’ve been hearing a lot about in recent weeks: The chip shortage. We’re not talking about Lay’s, Ruffles or Tostitos disappearing from the snack aisle at Kroger. While a lack of salty snacks may be a serious inconvenience, the very real shortage of

Episode 43 – Hot Wheels vs Matchbox
Welcome to the auto podcast that can’t have Steve Brown on two shows in a row… but we probably should because he’s a great interview and a cool dude overall. If you haven’t listened to the last episode, you’ll certainly want to take it for a spin around the block. Winter is in full effect here in the Midwest, but the days are longer. In a month or so, we’ll dig the summer cars out of hibernation and prep for an exciting season of autocross, trail-running, and car shows. Until that time we have some fresh podcast content for you. In this episode, we bring

Episode 42 – Cannonball Run 2 – The Return of Steve Brown
Welcome to the auto podcast that knows Cannonball Run 2 carries an odor that is not easily shaken. We will do everything in our power to avoid making a stinker of an episode to rival that movie. Obviously, if we are talking Cannonball and VinWiki, that must mean we’re hanging out with our new favorite guest, Steve Brown.  You may remember Steve from Episode 35 as we recounted his epic run on the coast-to-coast route that spans from Jacksonville, Florida to San Diego California.  He did it solo and holds a record for that run at 27 hours and 13 minutes! https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/thebeerreport/TW_42_Final.mp3 In This Episode This week, we catch

Welcome to the auto podcast that gives you the best Christmas Episodes! It’s okay to admit you loved last year’s Christmas episode. This year, we thought we’d put together another list of our ‘favorite things.’ And while you may not be able to drive to Grandma’s house this Christmas, you can still pretend we’re all driving the Dan Ryan, headed to a party in an old Chevy Astro van, all the while hoping the Christmas tree doesn’t fall off the roof.  Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, we proudly present our Christmas gift to the world for 2020: The Throwin’ Wrenches Virtual Road Trip Soundtrack.

Episode 40 – Car Trucks, Right to Fix and Herzog Speaks
Welcome to the auto podcast that can appreciate a well-run amateur sporting organization.  That’s some love aimed directly at the Champaign County Sports Car Club.  We had hopes of getting with Dean Plumadore for Episode 40, but it didn’t work out for this time.  Nevertheless, we’ll be sure to wrangle Dean for a future show to hear all of the latest escapades. Meanwhile, you’re stuck with the two regulars. Enjoy! This show is extra long to make up for the delay!
