Five Automotive Podcasts That Give Us Life

Looking for a podcast to make your commute or office experience a bit more manageable? Us too. That’s why this morning, we channeled all our productivity into finding your new favorite automotive podcasts (so you don’t have to spend time doing it yourself). Whether you need a good laugh to make it through the workday, or just want to expand your knowledge of cars, our top choices have you covered.

Check out our five new favorite podcasts for all the car fans out there:

Car Talk

“Car Talk” gives us everything we want from an automotive podcast: car talk, humor, answering questions from all over the country and even trivia (don’t worry, it doesn’t always involve math). After listening to one episode, we’re already subscribed for more.

Everyday Driver Car Debate

Ever wish you could have a team of people help you find your dream car? Meet Paul and Todd from “Everyday Driver.” They act as your personal guides to explore different car options and other various topics in the car industry.

The Smoking Tire

“The Smoking Tire” is exactly what it sounds like—a fast-paced, fun 90-minute show featuring guests from the automotive industry and beyond. From testing cars to interviews with stunt drivers, it’s unlikely you’ll get bored of this entertaining bunch.

CarCast

Performance aftermarket? Check. New cars? Check. Add in some discussions about the future of the automotive industry and you’ve got CarCast with Adam Carolla, Matt D’Andria and Bill Goldberg. This star-studded podcast is twice a week which gives us twice the amount of joy. 

Talking Cars

“Talking Cars” gives us information from automotive experts without the “influence” (aka paid advertising) of brands. It’s all the advice we ever wanted without the ulterior motives of other companies. They even answer audience questions, so of course we’re planning on submitting a few.

We only meant to add one or two podcasts to our weekly listening queue, but now here we are with five new additions. At least now you’ll have enough content to listen to while you’re browsing Copart’s latest auctions.

The Coolest Car Films

Films featuring fast and furious cars have always been a popular choice for adventure seekers and thrill junkies. There’s nothing better than sitting in the movie theatre watching your favorite cars seemingly fit perfectly in your favorite movies. Here are some of the coolest car films ever made:

10. The Dark Knight (2008)

The Dark Knight is not your typical racing movie; however, it does feature a few exotic cars. The Lamborghini Murcielago (which means bat in Spanish) roadster is the star of the movie as the “Bat Mobile.” Unfortunately, Bruce Wayne ends up crashing this prized Lamborghini in the movie *spoiler*. Do not fear, he comes back with vengeance in The Dark Knight Rises driving an Aventador LP 700-4! How can we not feature this movie in the top 10 with cars like these?

9. Smokey and the Bandit (1977)

Similarly, to #10, Smokey and the Bandit isn’t your typical racing movie. However, how can you not include the movie that features the famous black and gold Pontiac Trans Am? The movie is about a mission to smuggle beer from Georgia to Texas and back and the Trans Am was driven by Burt Reynold’s character Bo Daville the “Bandit.” There is still some debate whether the Trans Am was a 1977 or a 1976, but there is no mistaking the model! After the premier of this classic film, Trans Am sales nearly doubled!

8. Dukes of Hazzard (2005)

This comedy film was based on a television series with the same name. The most famous vehicle in the movie and TV show was the orange 1969 Dodge Charger with “01” painted on both doors named “General Lee.” The movie also included other classic cars like the 1967 Dodge Coronet, 1976 Cadillac Eldorado, 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans AM, 1977 Chevrolet Corvette C3, and much more!

7. Grease (1978)

This classic love story musical is no racing movie, but it does feature some pretty cool cars. One of the main characters, Danny Zuko (John Travolta), drove a candy apple red 1949 Dodge Wayfarer. While the “Pink Ladies” drove a ’42 Studebaker Commander Regal with a pink paint job. However, the most unique care driven in the film would have to be the black 1949 Mercury Custom complete with yellow flames, flam-shooting tailpipes, and sharp serrated blades sticking out from the hubcaps.

6. Baby Driver (2017)

This movie features a teen named “Baby” who happens to be a prodigiously talented getaway driver. Baby drives a 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI to escape from the authorities. The WRX Sedan houses a 2.5-liter turbo boxer engine that makes the car look like the car is on steroids as it zooms through the streets on the screen.

5. Need For Speed (2014)

This thriller movie left you on the edge of your seat! Not only did this movie premier in theatres and bring in $203.3 million,  it featured some awesome cars! According to Screenrant.com, “In less than six months, 15 super cars were reproduced for this movie.” In this list included everything from a 1966 Pontiac GTO to a BGugatti Veyron Super Sport.

4. Cars 1, Cars 2, and Cars 3

No car movie list would be complete without a shout out to Lightening McQueen, the lead car in the Pixar film, Cars. This car movie franchise of three movies (Cars 1, Cars 2 and Cars 3) brought in a whopping $588.4 million total to the box office. Although the characters are cartoons, the movie features fantastic vehicles like a 996-series Porsche 911 Carrera and the “Fabulous Hudson Hornet,” one of the most famous NASCAR stock cars in the history of the sport.

3. Drive (2011)

This movie features Ryan Gosling as a skilled stuntman who works as a getaway driver for criminals.  Drive contained several classic cars including a 1973 Cheverolet Chevelle Malibu, a 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass, 1967 Plymouth Road Runner and a 1955 For Thunderbird.

2. Gone in 60 Seconds (2000)

Gone in 60 Seconds brought in a massive $237.2 million to the box office in the year 2000. This thriller was about a car thief that is forced to steal 50 luxury vehicles in one night in order to save his brother’s life. The cars that were stolen are iconic and played major roles in the movie like the rest of the cast. A few cool cars featured included the 68 Shelby Mustang GT, Aston Martin DB1, Ferrari Daytona and Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

1. Fast and Furious Franchise

Of course, number one goes to the Fast and Furious franchise. Honestly, half of the list could have been given to Fast and Furious 1, 2, 3… etc. However, in fairness, we just decided to lump them together in one. The Fast and Furious is a media franchise largely centered around illegal street racing. In total, this massive franchise took in a whopping $5.1 Billion in the box office worldwide. The movies featured more cars than we can list but two of our favorite exotic cars are the 2013 W Motors Lykan Hypersport and the 2010 Koenigsegg CCX-R.

Las mejores películas de coches

Las películas con autos rápidos y furiosos siempre han sido una opción popular para los buscadores de aventuras y adictos a la emoción. No hay nada mejor que sentarse en la sala de cine viendo cómo tus autos favoritos encajan perfectamente en tus películas favoritas. Estas son algunas de las mejores películas de autos que se han hecho:

10. The Dark Knight (2008)

The Dark Knight no es tu típica película de carreras; Sin embargo, cuenta con algunos coches exóticos. El roadster Lamborghini Murcielago (que significa murciélago en español) es la estrella de la película como el “Bat Mobile”. Desafortunadamente, Bruce Wayne termina chocando a este preciado Lamborghini en la película * spoiler *. ¡No temas, él regresa con venganza en The Dark Knight Rises conduciendo un Aventador LP 700-4! ¿Cómo podemos no presentar esta película en el top 10 con autos como estos?

9. Smokey and the Bandit (1977)

Del mismo modo, en el número 10, Smokey y el bandido no son las típicas películas de carreras. Sin embargo, ¿cómo no incluir la película que presenta el famoso Pontiac Trans Am negro y dorado? La película trata sobre la misión de contrabandear cerveza de Georgia a Texas y de regreso, y Trans Am fue conducida por el personaje de Burt Reynold, Bo Daville, el “Bandido”. Todavía hay cierto debate sobre si la Trans Am era una de 1977 o una de 1976, pero No hay que confundir al modelo! Después del estreno de esta película clásica, ¡las ventas de Trans Am casi se duplicaron!

8. Dukes of Hazzard (2005)

Esta comedia se basó en una serie de televisión con el mismo nombre. El vehículo más famoso en la película y el programa de televisión fue el Dodge Charger de 1969 con color naranja, con “01” pintado en ambas puertas, llamado “General Lee”. La película también incluía otros autos clásicos como el Dodge Coronet de 1967, 1976 Cadillac Eldorado, 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans AM, 1977 Chevrolet Corvette C3, ¡y mucho más!

7. Grease (1978)

Esta clásica historia de amor musical no es una película de carreras, pero sí cuenta con algunos coches geniales. Uno de los personajes principales, Danny Zuko (John Travolta), condujo un Dodge Wayfarer de 1949 en color rojo manzana. Mientras que las “Damas Rosadas” condujeron un Studebaker Commander Regal ’42 con un trabajo de pintura rosa. Sin embargo, el cuidado más exclusivo de la película tendría que ser el Mercury Custom negro de 1949 completo con llamas amarillas, tubos de escape de tiro rápido y cuchillas serradas afiladas que sobresalen de los tapacubos.

6. Baby Driver (2017)

Esta película presenta a un adolescente llamado “Baby”, que resulta ser un conductor de escapada prodigiosamente talentoso. Baby conduce un Subaru Impreza WRX STI 2006 para escapar de las autoridades. El WRX Sedan aloja un motor turbo boxer de 2.5 litros que hace que el auto se vea como si el auto estuviera cargado de esteroides mientras se acerca a las calles en la pantalla.

5. Need For Speed (2014)

¡Esta película de suspenso te dejó en el borde de tu asiento! ¡Esta película no solo se estrenó en los cines y trajo $ 203.3 millones, sino que también presentó algunos autos increíbles! De acuerdo con Screenrant.com, “En menos de seis meses, se reprodujeron 15 súper autos para esta película”. En esta lista se incluyó todo, desde un Pontiac GTO de 1966 hasta un BGugatti Veyron Super Sport.

4. Cars 1, Cars 2, and Cars 3

Ninguna lista de películas de autos estaría completa sin un agradecimiento a Lightening McQueen, el auto líder en la película de Pixar, Cars. Esta franquicia de películas de autos de tres películas (Cars 1, Cars 2 y Cars 3) trajo un total de $ 588.4 millones a la taquilla. Aunque los personajes son dibujos animados, la película presenta fantásticos vehículos como el Porsche 911 Carrera de la serie 996 y el “Fabulous Hudson Hornet”, uno de los autos de serie más famosos de NASCAR en la historia de este deporte.

3. Drive (2011)

Esta película presenta a Ryan Gosling como un experto que trabaja como conductor de escapada para delincuentes. Drive contenía varios autos clásicos, entre ellos un Cheverolet Chevelle Malibu de 1973, un Oldsmobile Cutlass de 1967, un Plymouth Road Runner de 1967 y un 1955 para Thunderbird.

2. Gone in 60 Seconds (2000)

Gone in 60 Seconds aportó $ 237.2 millones a la taquilla en el año 2000. Este thriller trata sobre un ladrón de autos que se ve obligado a robar 50 vehículos de lujo en una noche para salvar la vida de su hermano. Los autos que fueron robados son icónicos y jugaron papeles principales en la película como el resto del reparto. Algunos de los mejores autos incluidos fueron el 68 Shelby Mustang GT, Aston Martin DB1, Ferrari Daytona y Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

1. Fast and Furious Franchise

Por supuesto, el número uno va a la franquicia Fast and Furious. Honestamente, la mitad de la lista podría haberse entregado a Fast and Furious 1, 2, 3 … etc. Sin embargo, para ser justos, simplemente decidimos agruparlos en uno. The Fast and Furious es una franquicia de medios centrada en gran medida en torno a las carreras callejeras ilegales. En total, esta franquicia masiva recibió la friolera de $ 5.1 mil millones en la taquilla mundial. Las películas incluyeron más autos de los que podemos enumerar, pero dos de nuestros autos exóticos favoritos son el 2013 W Motors Lykan Hypersport y el 2010 Koenigsegg CCX-R.
