Past Gas #245: Hot Rods Were The Original Tuner Cars

7/8/2024
This week on Past Gas…it’s the history of Hot Rodding! Hot rod culture might seem tame today, and is probably more associated with baby boomer car shows than rebellious street racers. But the engine building and custom aesthetic work hot rodders did during their heyday not only kickstarted the aftermarket performance and car enthusiast media industries- it also set a blueprint for the countless enthusiasts that have followed. How did it go from essentially nothing to a major influence in car culture? How did it create some of the most ubiquitous racing series? And how does it continue to influence car culture today?

Junior Johnson's moonshining days were just the start of a remarkable journey that would see him revolutionize the sport of stock car racing.

6/17/2024
Brothers Walt and Art Arfons would set and break the Land Speed record three separate times from 1960-1965.

Past Gas #235: Datsun, Pt 2: Why Datsun Had To Die

4/29/2024
In 1967, Yutaka Katayama, or Mr. K, is now President of Nissan North America. He’s just been called to Nissan HQ to select a concept design to replace the aging Fairlady Roadster. But unbeknownst to the other executives on the selection committee, Mr. K has been quietly operating behind the scenes to push his preferred design through. The concept is referred to as codename “Z,” and it isn’t really a new generation roadster at all- it’s a powerful new sports coupe, and something that Mr. K believes will be a huge success in the US market. Today on Past Gas, part two of our series on Datsun and Nissan- how did Mr. K’s leadership of Datsun in the US change the entire company? How did he become known as “the father of the Z car”? And how did Nissan help create an entire generation of car enthusiasts? Thanks to our sponsors: Turn your ordinary water into extraordinary hydration with Liquid I.V.

Past Gas #232: What Happened with SAAB? Pt 2

4/8/2024
Despite its affinity for front-wheel drive cars, especially in its legendary 99 and 900 badges, Swedish automaker Saab still managed to sell one of its properly cool cars as a wagon with all-wheel drive. The 9-2X Aero. But here’s the thing: It wasn’t a true Saab, but a mashup of GM DNA mixed with Subaru. And, it was entirely built by Subaru, too. But let’s take a step back and try to get an idea of where it all started. When did Saab start slipping away? What did platform sharing and badge engineering mean for its legacy and survival? What happened at the end? And finally, will we ever see some form of Saab ever again? Today, on Past Gas: it’s the final part of our two-part series on Saab.
