  • Past Gas #205: How Chevrolet Was Kicked Out of Chevrolet
    Chevrolet isn’t just a company, it’s an American institution. Today on Past Gas, the story of a world-conquering company that almost wasn’t. How did the men who made Chevy lose it so quickly? How did the company nearly get shut down by its own board, then come back to overtake Ford in sales only 7 years later? How did an up-and-coming lawyer flip Chevy’s attitude about safety even quicker than a Corvair could flip itself? All that and more on today’s Past Gas, about the beginnings of Chevrolet and the man who stole its name, William Durant.

  • Past Gas #204: Kei Cars: How a WWII Loophole Created Japan's Tiny Cars
    After the end of WWII, the world was eager to get back to work, and more specifically, back to makin’ cars. Japan was particularly ready to rebuild their economy, but were missing some crucial materials: steel, gasoline, and money. And as it turns out, the lack of those resources crafted the perfect storm for the creation of the Kei car. Often misunderstood, underappreciated, and forgotten, these minimobiles are some of the most fascinating examples of problem-solving in automotive history. How did they come about? Why did they stick around for so long? And perhaps most importantly, what are they?? Today on Past Gas, we’re talking about that quirkiest of automotive curiosites - the Kei car.

Some dream, work, scrimp, and save their entire lives to get a chance to make a pass at breaking a land speed record here.

But how does an almost 70 year old man from New Zealand, with no sponsorships, travel nearly half way across the globe to achieve a land speed record on a 50 year old bike that still stands today?

  • Past Gas #202: Why We Think Lotus’s Founder Faked His Own Death
    Colin Chapman’s Formula 1 trophy case is an impressive one, with seven Constructors’ Championships and six Drivers’ Championships since 1963. Beyond his championship seasons, Chapman’s imprint on the sport is hard to comprehend – some suggest that Chapman might have more to do with the basic design of today’s mid-engine, open-wheeled racing cars than any other single builder. Would Formula 1 be recognizable without Colin Chapman? Did his habit of playing fast and loose with F1 rules foreshadow the way he played fast and loose with corporate finance laws? And did he FAKE HIS OWN DEATH? Today on Past Gas: the man behind Lotus, Colin Chapman.

  • Past Gas #201: Spoon + Mugen: The Kings of Honda Tuning
    In the world of engine tuning, two names (strange as they may be) are often at the top of the list. These companies upended the racing world with their attention to detail and refusal to accept anything but the best in terms of power, precision, and yes, speed. Today on Past Gas, we take a look at Spoon and Mugen. How did these companies start? How have they evolved over the years to stay on top? What are their plans for the future? And where did they get the name ‘Spoon’ from, anyway? Thanks to our sponsors: Stop wasting money on things you don’t use.
