    Enjoyed seeing johny with you chaps specially in Collins bunker I'm late to the party on this really enjoyed having petrol heads in my house I won't explain when I was on my thinking tank. I kind of agree with the white car thing everyone said it was a fashion colour a bit like this primer grey which doesn't do it for me yes bring back bolder colours summer greens funky Blues even yellows look cool on some of these cars. TVR chameleon pearlescent amazing nearly crashed when I saw one of them once. Clapping the Honda e because their colours are really cool👍🤣

    I think these 3 should take over from Clarkson and co when they deicide to hang up there keys, they have a very similar chemistry. Amazon or Netflix should sign them up think what they could do with a bit more money, think old top gear cheap car challenges etc.

    also... you can't walk through a mcdonalds drive through either - i tried to ask for directions at the hatch as it was the only place open at 2am in the morning as I tried to find my way home after a few drinks. My usual self-homing ability was flawed as I'd moved house a couple of months earlier. They refused to serve me or give directions. :|

    I dont know a lot about this but would you guys be able to wear lavalier mics and still be understandable as well as you are with these standing mics? It might let you sit back and relax a bit more during these podcasts. This couch for instance looks pretty comfortable but you’re all cramped upright to reach the mic properly.

    I'm gonna say on the fill up line cut. You may not use up much time filling up your tank on your bike but you also don't know how long the car owners ahead of you will take. May be they're only getting a gallon or two as well?

    I rode myself and have done so for around 9 years. I have never jumped infront of someone queuing at a pertol station, although I have been very tempted. The closest i have been to jumping on a pump someone was going to use was maybe going to the front pump of the car infront of me couldn't fit between the 2 cars using the rear pumps and was going to be waiting a while.

    No queue jumping at petrol stations, regardless of how much or little you need to fill up. It might only be a minute to you, but that turns 5 minutes for the car into 6, someone further back in the queue that has 5 bikes jump in front has the equivalent of double the time at the pump, 5 minutes to fill their car, 5 minutes extra for the 5 bikes that jumped the queue. Not appropriate. You're all there for the same service, wait in the same queue. You wouldn't do it at a garage, I only have a small engine so I'm going to jump in front of you to get it fixed, you can wait.

    I think on the MOT comment that there shouldn't be a requirement for the classics to meet current standards, but I would be all for a classic car MOT, like the concept of classic car insurance compared to regular insurance. The safety things like brakes, suspension, tyres, lights, etc, but emissions, noise, etc they're exempt from, or at least have more flexible ranges for them to meet.

    29:30 I agree, wrenching on vehicles, changing brakes and things like isn't an extremely difficult thing. You need the willingness to get your hands dirty and solve problems that occur along the process. It's kinda baffling how some people are afraid of touching their vehicle.

    A friend of mine worked the door for a student union and said that Goldie Looking Chain were really good lads when they came to do a show, apparently they were really nice to the staff and paid for everyones food/drink for the evening. (Also Alex, I'd let you jump in front at the petrol station queue if you asked but if you just rolled in I'd take great pleasure in pulling you off the bike and laughing at you rolling around like the michelin man on the floor in your inflatable suit)

While looking my way, he ignores the state trooper that is just waiting for guys like him. Can’t wait for the police blotter to be published to see what they gave him.

    Absolutely agree on fast and furious. Utter shite! I have yet to see a movie which treats racing seriously. I mean what's up with winning by going down a gear and pushing the throttle to the floor? What have u been doing the whole time before? Cruising ffs? And then normies look at racing like a discipline where no skill is necessary - just who has the bigger turbo and can actually floor it. Also the sense of speed in those films is nothing like the real thing, more like a shitty video game. The only movie I remember having decent dynamoc car chase would be "Ronnin".
