Cars & Comrades published on

Leaded gasoline seemed like a great idea at the time, but it turns out that aerosolizing a neurotoxin is bad for human health and society as a whole. After a brief project car update we tell the story of tetraethyllead (at 27 min), get Zach’s ideas for running a car company (at 1 hour), and hear Bryant's field report from the recent 24 Hours of Lemons race in Colorado (at 1:21).
