Deadliest Catch

Chris Hayes published on

This week we welcome back our good friend Jeff Glucker of Hooniverse and American Detours to help us close out 2013.  We discuss Jeff's W123 Mercedes Hemi swap "The Wombat", Thad buys himself a brand new Fiesta ST, Matt geeks out on Back to the Future and Chris manages to knock his mic over mid show. We also touch on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, the Lamborghini Countach and we list the favorite cars we drove over the course of the year.

    The W123 is so cool, I have one too so I'd like a Hemi but in Europe byby. I like the solidity of the suspension and brakes, the geometry in rear, all is very solid.
    The W109 were 6.3 with 4 spd auto 250hp
    The W116 were 6.9 with 3spd auto 286hp
    Actually there are W123 with column shifter, but the gearbox is Benz, so you can use the shifter fom W210 E class or CLK's
    The ring & pinion will last if no neutral drops.

    I love the fiesta st as well, but 5000 down for a 3 year is extra 138 dollars a month. So total of 357 monthly. Not debating the worthiness of the price/car.
