Listen to the latest Podcast…Double O Seven Series in which you might be forgiven for thinking it’s Crackerjack! (Crackerjack!). There is more MGB chatter, Snake Plisken turns up, David looks for a new Podcast partner when James admits to swapping out a Lotus Esprit for a limo, before the lads declare war and seek to establish a rogue junta with their imaginary collection of military vehicles.






The Ballad(e) of the Rover 213 Where James stalks a poor woman at a petrol station in a classic before evaluating MGBs with David, take a diversion to Yank Tanks, lament the demise of ‘70s Mustangs before hopping onto Hovercrafts, Rotaries and even flying cars. Meanwhile a traumatised David has never fully recovered from running a Rover 213.





Whatever happened to Eddie Riff? Where James has a breakdown and David slightly mentions his new book. There is talk about long deceased and recently terminated car mags. The gentlemen adjudicate on whether a Triumph TR7 is a Banger or Classic before James bores everyone to tears by reading out a long list Vauxhall Nova special editions, before David saves the day with some sensible limited production run suggestions. Ten Pods so far, will there be any more?




The Long Good Robin Friday which is oddly topical as it features footballers and their cars, but back in the days when they drove the same ones as your mum and dad. There is a diversion into motor racing films which can be terrible and also cheap Banger convertibles for summer which can not only be terrible but also leaky. Finally James and David bring it all back to cars and football by definitively debating whether the Italia ’90 special edition Fiat Panda is a Banger or a Classic.




The Lee Marvin Roofrack Experience where James issues a public service announcement about carrying unaccompanied rodents in your Banger. David goes car spotting, talk briefly turns to Bodie and Doyle before the boys consider starting the Bangers and Classics Car Hire business with some unique add ons. Finally David tries to get James a free loan car, but he’s terribly uncooperative and ungrateful. Yet another podcast that descends into anarchy.





Do Androids Dream of Electricity Cars? This is the one where James and David deny the inevitability of electricity as credible propulsion by driving a modern one and probably will never be invited to try one again. The lads are agog at the prices achieved by Classic Cars at the moment, then compare and contrast good and bad Classics This episodes involves guest appearances from a Bond Bug, 5GT Turbo, Bricklin SV-1 and some Beetles.



On Her Majesty’s Stationary Service, or is it Office? Where David and James watch some top quality early ‘90s Telly:  Tales of Modern Motoring, make some suggestions about buying a Classic Car, then cover the shocking dissapearance of ’90s motors, before suggesting how Classic Car Shows could be a lot better and give a shout out to Car Show stalwart Kenny.




An Innocenti Man…where James admits to not being a Land Rover anorak and David claims to have been a model for a clothing line. Both of them can be considered beautiful flops like most Lancias and Renault Avantime. Talk turns to milk floats and one of them turns out to actually be an Innocenti Man. 



Hillman Avengers Assemble…where James and David talk wheels, are attacked by jet aircraft, ponder convertibles for spring, underated classics and the cars (& Ladies) of the SHADO organisation from the UFO TV Series. 




’Sweet Home Alcantara…’ Where David and James discuss car names, old brilliant car adverts and suggest just what supercar their own comic book creations would drive.
