TST Podcast Ep. 25 with Dan Neil
by Zack Klapman
Happy 4th of July minions of speed. By now many of you are too drunk to right-click anything, or outside committing misdemeanors with explodey things that you may or may not have made at home. To soothe your hangover and/or keep you company in a holding cell, we have a great podcast, with the Wall Street Journal’s Dan Neil.
If you don’t know Dan Neil, you should. He has been an automotive journalist for over 20 years, was a co-host on the forever-dead “The Car Show”, and writes very good, very honest, car reviews for WSJ (Check it out, and keep a Thesaurus nearby). This man knows cars, old and new. He gets to fly around the world, driving Ferraris in the snow, or meeting Tesla CEO Elon Musk for an early drive in the new Model S, which Dan believes might be the best car ever. Bold statement.
We also talk about one very stupid Model S owner, the best AWD car for under $10k, argue about Dodge Daytona’s, and why gold wheels are totally bad ass, on the right car. Make the jump to download the podcast, and check out the pics and videos so you know what we’re talking about.
