TeamClearCoat is about making the best out of what you have - be it the peeling paint on our cars, our hopefully-better-than-average go-kart lap times, or the goddamn sunroof seal that won't stop leaking. It's about taking pride in the things we make better while recognizing that everything, including our cars, will always be just a little TeamClearCoat.

163-We Manage To Not Screw Up An Interview With Ted Parks Of Varsity Roadsters

10/19/2018

Episode 163-Varsity Roadsters Joining us this week is Ted Parks, founder of Varsity Roadsters. Let's get this out of the way right up front: we had an absolute BLAST talking to him about all things related to his car and it's development. A huge thing that we love about doing this show is all of the elements of history and culture that are related to automotive enthusiasm. The overlaps are the things that really intrigue us. We honestly don't think we could find a guest that speaks better...

162-Dave Stops Being Nice, Ian Defends His Position, And We Adopt Different Personas

Episode 162-Blue shell. Questions. We has them. Can karting be had without thinking of Mario-esque power-ups? Can Subarus be had without ambient lingering vape? Can a rental Home Depot van be driven without overalls appearing on your body? Which came first, the dent or the depleted health meter? Is it better to hear Buffet or inflict Buffet upon passers-by? Answers. We may has some. Usually, no. Usually, no. Eh, you're at least wearing them in your mind. Probably the dent. Inflicting,...

Episode 161-What's that coming down from the sprinklers? The stuff that keeps you up at night. The source of the heartburn. No, we're not talking about that certainly-too-old baked ziti that you panic ate out of the fridge at 3 AM, we're talking about the world we live in. The stew. Picture the world as the stew and our goofy show and automotive enthusiasm as a whole as the breadstick. Sometimes you need to just want to jump out of the stew and take respite on the breadstick for a minute....

Episode 160 Booty N Pizza. What more can be said? What more could be desired out of life? Never have eleven letters said so much. Our admiration dials get turned to 11 on this show; normally a Mustang owner wouldn't cause so much envy…but…Booty N Pizza. Speaking of things that make us happy, Dave detected that Ian may have needed a mental break, and stepped in with three impromptu karting heats to get the bad vibes out. We had some fun, Dave inserted himself into an already goofy...

Episode 159-Hurrrrp. Look, there's no getting around this. Toad. Yep, that Toad. We can never play Toad in Mario Kart again without throwing up a bit in the back of our mouths. Thankfully she didn't describe it as Dry Bones with the tank, because that's Dave's default choice, on the DS version at least. What? Car show? Oh, right. Car show: Scion. Toyota. Crazy puzzles to unravel with a CR-V spare tire. Car accidents. Gran Turismo. Kroger Lube and Crash Bandicoot. Shoot. Sorry about that....

Episode 158-Ups and Downs There's one thing that absolutely needs to be above the fold on this episode's description: RIP BURT REYNOLDS In other news, we talk about some stuff we like and stuff we don't. A motorcycle racer's behavior? Bad. Kids racing pedal cars at the Goodwood Revival? Capital G Good. Also in this episode, we discuss some karting etiquette, and Ian reassures Dave that he, Dave, is not being a butt on the track. Keep your foot in it folks. Buy stuff with our hashtag...

Episode 157-Coal Rolls There's some surprises in this episode of the TeamClearCoat Podcast. First, we discuss how much fun we had in Nissan's hopped-up golf kart. After all, tire squeal plus car equals fun, no matter the propulsion system. Another surpirse was our affinity for a huge Subaru, this one really caught us off guard, but hey, if you can move seven people with a smile on your face, then it is a welcome surprise indeed. Want to know what wasn't a surprise? The end result of Ian...

Episode 156 - They just handed us the keys... Apologies up front for the abreviated episode. Dave and Ian were busy kanoodling across Colorado in all kinds of cars and we're able to make their regularly scheduled appointment in the blanket fort this week. In lieu of blanket-based broadcasting, we bring you tolerable in-car audio on such topics as the Kia Stinger GT, the Ford Bullitt Mustang, The Volvo XC40, the Subaru BRZ, and the incredible, organ-relocating BMW M5.

Episode 155-He's like an bomb-sniffing dog for costly online purchases. When inviting Ian into your home, if there happens to be a limited edition LP boxed set, guess what? IAN GONNA FIND IT. If there was any attempt to hide it, you can bet it's going to be found. On to the car topics! Listeners, let's um…listen to Dave lament about the Viggen failing emissions testing. Again. On an upnote, Ian had a rental that he really liked, and we've seen some STUFF. Also Ian hates Toto, so there's...

Episode 154-Sweaty You know, after a long sweaty day at the go kart track, what could be more refreshing than sitting in a blanket fort with absolutely zero ventilation? Well, just about anything other than that. Given that we're prone to making bad decisions, we tough it out in the blanket fort and get down to brass tacks. In better news, automotive manufactures have once again decided to give us some cars. We discuss what we'll be driving at the Rocky Mountain Driving Event this year,...

Episode One Five Three We're still puzzled as to why someone would put a put a 3.7L badge on a Ford Mustang. What we're not puzzled about is what WRX drivers adorn their cars with, especially when it's such an OBVIOUS CLICHÉ that you're walking into! We're not mad, we're really not. Ultimately, we're just disappointed. It's almost like the person is being given a test, and the results determine whether or not we'd ever be friends with that person. You know what Dave's not disappointed by?...

Episode 152-Royals! Humility. Denial. When it comes to Ian's karting abilities, our resident racer (the better and less-sunburned of the two at least) seems to be in a Schrodinger-esque superstate composed of the two where he is both humble and in a state of denial about his talent. Well guess who comes crashing through the cat box to boldly declare that Ian is a good driver? Dave. Dave does that. We all know he does that. He does. He did. While Ian may not like discussing his victories,...

Episode 151-The taste of victory Ah the refreshing flavor of victory. Dave doesn't get to taste it often, or seemingly care to, but when he gets his pasty ginger lips on the sweet chalice of triumph, he certainly doesn't hesitate to gloat about it. While Dave's victory is technically not impressive, or impressive at all, we are truly impressed by a VW Jetta. Numbers don't lie, and when we ran the math on how much this car travels, the magnitude of what we were truly witnessing came into...

Well, answers in order: when it's a website, when Elon gets involved, and probably never.

Episode 148-Don't do as we say. Or do. It is never too late or too early to apologize. If there was ever one word that could sum up the show, "sorry" may not be it, but it's in the top, I'm going to say, three. Look, we're the last folks that you should look to as role models. Don't be envious of Dave's instant ability to get sunburned when he's around any lightbulb brighter than a candle, as well as you shouldn't be jealous of all of the constant manscaping that Ian gets to do.

Episode 147-Help is almost a call away. Sometimes we hear what we want to hear, versus what someone is actually saying. In this instance of "Ginger Hears What A Ginger Wants To Hear", Dave takes the opportunity to make his own terms for the ultimatum laid out by sweet, innocent Ian. Needless to say, it's easier to score points in a goal you yourself draw, and now Ian, very much being a good sport about all of this, has to listen to both PLEEPS and PLOOPS for the course of a (non-business)...

Episode 146-KRYPTO We have a hotline and we encourage you to call or text whenever you see something. This week, something is a broken down Peugeot (is there any other kind in the US?) and a new X6 to hate even more than regular X6s, which is already breaking the needle off of the hate gauge. Speaking of seeing things, Dave's MOTHER came to visit, and while driving through Denver, they happened across a donk. Seizing the opportunity, Dave imparted his donk wisdom upon MOTHER, in addition...

Dave, arguably the Lotus Europa Special of this show, comes to the realization that what is weird at a distance compounds oddly upon closer inspection. When we look into the brown body panels of an old Lotus, the old Lotus looks back at us. Now then, Ian gets a treat, something we rabid car enthusiasts don't get very often. He gets the gift of finding...
