Great To Hear Marco (And Siracusa) Is Back
Look forward to more of these.
Just talking with some friends...
Years ago, a friend and I would test-drive cars almost every weekend. It was great fun. Now those days have been mostly replaced with Top Gear, Edmunds and Consumer Reports, but it's still fun. This show fits perfectly in that space. John and Marco are true to form and it's great. Casey is a nice addition too.
Great car show!
Marco and Siracusa are back! (And also Casey Liss). They bring a great mix of humor and car knowledge that makes it a must listen. Keep making more shows!
