Automotive >

Auto Off Topic is a weekly podcast where we talk cars, adventures with cars or anything that might be related to cars. We’ll even have the occasional guest.This is a cautionary podcast about rusty bolts, blown head gaskets, snapped timing belts, spun bearings and janky wiring. We'll share the highs and lows of old car/project car ownership. It won't be all horror; in the Spring, Summer, and Fall, we actually drive some interesting cars when they aren't broken and do some fun things with them. Brad and Andrew are two car enthusiasts who willingly live in New England and have been best friends for over 30 years.Our theme song "Z/28" is graciously provided by the band Z/28.
