James and Bruce have collaborated on many automotive projects in recent years. With our new podcast, we’ll share our thoughts on the automotive world. We’ll talk about new cars and old cars, trends, auto shows and our enjoyment of the varied world of cars and trucks.

Our debut podcast is a review of Monterey Auto Week. Bruce and I visited four events in three days. We were hosted by Lisa Guthrie at The Santa Lucia Preserve and attended a private event she began seven years ago called the Concours & Cocktails. It featured about three-dozen vehicles, including our favorite, the 1955 Ford F-100 owned by Bob Kavner.

Bruce and I also attended The Little Car Show in Pacific Grove, Mecum Auctions in M0nterey and The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering in Carmel. We have reports on those events, too.
