Automotive News from insiders, outsiders and general people in the know.
Episode 55 – Trillionaire Elon, A Giant SEMA Chevy Crate Motor and Ali MacGraw’s Eyebrows Welcome to the automotive podcast that crosses boundaries. Some of those boundaries are subjective, others happen to be international.  Also, welcome all the SEMA 2022 travelers looking for an automotive podcast that’s worth a damn! Did you know that we’re the #1 Automotive Podcast in Burkina Faso? Neither did we until recently. Maybe we’ll do a remote show there one day. Maybe not. In other news, we’ve just finished putting the second coat of wax on Episode 55, and we hope you enjoy it! To join in on the fun of the show, just email us at or post a review on iTunes

Episode 53 – Autonomous Accidents and Apple Cars The automotive podcast that’s going to spend way too much time talking EV’s and autonomous vehicles on this episode.  Thanks Joe Biden!  Not really, it’s a well-known fact that all politicians suck and EVs will likely become a legislative mandate at some point here in the U.S., but that’s another show. We appreciate you listening to our podcast.  To join in on the fun, just email us at or post a review on iTunes to be heard around the world! We’ll also send you a sticker for your time.

Episode 52 – Summer RV, Camper and Boat fun along with Elon’s Tesla Robot
Whether you’re new to the program, or you stumbled into this place for the first time, we’d like to welcome you to the automotive podcast that never forgets a great guest. Our good friend Regan is back for another episode of Throwin’ Wrenches where he joins us for more in-depth conversation about all things automotive. We also go down a few non-automotive rabbit holes to discuss the virtues of old appliances (like Regan’s 1951 Frigidaire refrigerator) versus new appliances, we learn exactly how creepy the new Tesla robots will be, and we even get a glimpse into Eric’s latest recreational vehicle purchase. Don’t worry, it’s

Episode 51 – 2022 Ford Bronco vs 2021 Jeep Wrangler
Welcome to the Auto podcast that can Wrangle a new Bronco without a Blazer.  Follow that?  I say, son, did that stick between your ears?  In this episode, we follow up on the conversation from Episode 50.1 about how comparable the pricing is between the new Ford Bronco and a Jeep Wrangler.  Specifically, we wanted to see if the base models stacked up and just how cheap can you get these vehicles for?  It was a fun exercise, tune in! We also talk a little bit about Lordstown Motors.  There are several EV truck makers vying for a spot in your post-2030 garage.  Lordstown promised

Episode 50 – The Ford Broncos are coming
Welcome to another installment of the automotive podcast that can make the most of 60 minutes (and then some). We’re trying to keep the next few episodes a little shorter because we know everyone is busy and only has so much time to devote to ‘infotainment’ on any given day. We also know that there aren’t too many programs out there that offer a blend of automotive insight, industry news, and humor… so we’re trying to juggle it all in style. If you like what you hear, let us know. If we can dial it in a little more, let us know that, too. Hit

TW Interview – Jason Hoffman from STLCA
Eric wandered down to the Great Smokey Mountain Trail Ride and had a chance to hang out with Jason Hoffman.  Jason is one of the many folks that help organize and keep this 30-year-old Toyota Landcruiser Association (TLCA) event running. It’s Eric’s second time at the event and he was thrilled to finally catch up with Jason and talk all things STLCA, GSMTR and TTAT.  Sick of those acronyms? STLCA = Southeast Toyota Landcruiser Association GSMTR = Great Smokey Mountain Trail Ride TTAT = Toyota Trucks and Trails Podcast.

Episode 48 – The Flying Targa Circus
Welcome to the auto podcast that loves a rainy night. Is that another early 80’s song reference? You bet it is. It’s been raining cats & dogs here in Central Illinois for the past few weeks, and for some reason, this gem of a song just stuck in our head. Don’t worry, we only sing a few bars of it in the intro.

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 adventures
