White Roof Radio #458

Bill's Roadster and fab hat

Tonight we are all about Hal Needham winning an Oscar and spend some talking about some of the greatest movies ever. Sure, Smokey and the Bandit, but don’t forget about Cannonball Run. Moving on to much Paceman talk, including the JCW model and including some hate for the Paceman from Top Gear and Jalopnik. Add in some more GP talk and you’ve got news. Finally, my piece about dealer attitudes that Nathaniel mentioned (be sure to read the comments).

Finish off with some Ask Chad and that, friends, is that. Don’t forget the Instagram contest either. Tag those photos #wrrhubcap and you can win a fabulous pile of swag from Detroit Tuned! Don’t forget, you can also follow @whiteroofradio too!

    And, of course, both versions of “The Italian Job” :-)

    Do have to claim counter BS to your claim of BS. How many of you drove a Hugo or a Pinto, or a R8 or Enzo. People make exclamations about cars they have not driven all the time. Have not issues with Jalopnik or Top Gear hacking the Paceman they have not driven. They are just making decisions based on their current info and views. There is nothing wrong with that.

    I have to agree with Jalopnik and Top gear 1000%.

      All Top Gear actually said was that the Paceman had a frowny face. That’s it. Didn’t even actually say anything about the car itself. Silly comments actually, as it’s the same face as the Countryman.
