Shopping for Marinas and Dollys where their Lordships pay tribute to Jimmy Greaves and Sir Claive Sinclair, get historical with Sir Donald Campbell’s Bluebird story, attempt to buy one of British Leyland’s finest then touch on tacky TV adverts and the one gadget from the ‘80s they could not do without

Simcalifragilisticexpialidocious  where you won't go for cooking tips, but listen to the chaps pretending that they could have been car bosses in the ‘70s, debate roofs, their favourite ‘ 80s accessory, find a French barge and then it becomes rather smelly when the chat turns to feet. 

Spoilt by an Austin Ambassador where the chaps delve into write offs, fancy a Princess, pledge allegiance to the Ambassador, indulge in plenty of American muscle before wonderling whatever happened to Nicole out of the Clio adverts...

Monte Carlo or Bust where after a respectful appreciation of Carlos Reutemann talk turns to James’ mate who’s bought a Bentley Continental, whilst David wants to buy a rare Lotus. There are a brace of Lancia Betas, a royal Escort Ghia and then it all goes pedal power with the mighty Chopper and marginal Sinclair C5....

Boys from the Two Lane Blacktop where David takes his test in a Vauxhall Nova and James reveals the boring list of Classics he’s spotted before the chaps warn about the impending E10 petrolpocolypse, then go and see a film that isn’t Fast or Furious just Californian, then cross back of the pond to visit Slough and musing on the safety or otherwise of Bangers and Classics

Cheesman: We have a Probe-lem… Where the lads spot Lotuses and Series 3s, the 911 Owner’s Club make a phone call, there is much probing of the Ford Probe, poverty spec models and an appreciation of the GTV and FTO.

...it's is the usual high quality nonsense from your favourite Podders.

Sergeant Pepper’s Lovely Astra Max Van where the lads spot rarities from Jensen, beauties by Jaguar and an old Citroen van. Otherwise it is the battle of the ‘70s Turbos, consider the classicality of the Porsche 924, whilst David joins The Beatles then looks around their garage and James convincies himself that the lady out of the Renault 25 TV ad would actually fancy him... 

Eric and Ernie’s Garage where you can decide just who James and David really are whilst they find a Reliant Graveyard, a Pug 309, upset Austin Metro owners and go in search of a big old Yank Tank...

Treasures of the Sierra Madre where Ruppert turns the talk to Light Commercial Vehicles whilst Milloy’s obsession remains an old SEAT advert. There is dodgy software, old German and French coupes and the lads launch an airline before a Jelly Mould gets a good kicking. Also contains Lesser Spotted Classics 21 Great Cars you (probably) won’t see on the Road by Mr. David Milloy is also officially launched…in the Sierra Madre Hotel, Scunthorpe. It is the usual high quality nonsense from your favourite Podders.

Bridgehead Revisited where there are technical issues, Lucozade, Arthur C. Clarke and some watches. James goes on about ‘80s BMWs again and David quite rightly plugs his brilliant new book '21 Great Cars you (probably) won’t see on the Road'. Both of them say things they might regret about Alfa Romeos.

It is the usual high quality nonsense from your favourite Podders.

Ryton, we have a Problem… Where James and David discuss the Chrysler Alpine, get fixated on spare wheels and barns again, remember cars they failed to buy (contains Bristols and Pugs) and ponder the in car etiquette implications of  waving at other Banger and Classic car owners. It is the usual high quality nonsense from your favourite Podders.

Breakfast at Epiphanes is the scary 13th show which is also unlucky for some, where James and David tell you what to wear whilst driving, what’s better, original or restored, go into the Barn Find business, decide whether one of those new fangled MINIs is a classic and manage to involve yet another Hollywood Legend into their stream of automotive madness.

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.
