  1. My favorite part of the story “The Greene Mille” was when you talked about Blake correcting you about a rock chip on the front of the car…
    Excerpt from book #3 of The Old Car Nut book series:
    Blake put his hand on my shoulder and said, “Don’t worry dad. That’s not a rock chip. That’s a memory mark. Every time you look at that you’ll be reminded what a special day today was.” I about started crying right then and there. This was an eight year old teaching his old man the meaning of life. It’s the adventures, not the things that count. I’ll never forget that moment.
    When you first sent that story to me, I read that part and tears welled up in my eyes.
    Thank you, Mark, for your support of my book series and for having me on your podcast twice.

  2. Mark, great way to celebrate 300 fine shows. I, like Blake, thought I’d heard most of your stories from all our Thursday nights together, but I thought your seller’s remorse car would have been the ’72 S, and I didn’t predict the Singer being your all-time favorite. Thanks for taking the time to let us get to know you better.

  3. Mark, Congratulations on your milestone, 300 guests on As your mom, when you have a child, you always wonder what they will grow up to be. I should have had an idea it would be something to do with cars, because as a very young child, you loved your little cars. You always had them lined up in your room very neatly, which is something you have always done with everything you own. I never had to ask you to pick up in your room. You were a delight to raise, never really gave me a worry except once on your skateboard, if you recall. I am a proud mom, and so happy you have found your special place with CarsYeah. It is a great show, and I look forward to hearing more interesting guests down the road.

  4. Great interview Mark! So fun to hear Blake interviewing his dad too, he did a wonderful job. Your insights were inspirational, and stories were fun to hear. So proud of you buddy, and the success you are making of Cars Yeah. Congratulations on your show # 300 !!! Awesome web site and pod cast for those of us who love the art of the automobile !
    P.S. I remember that VW Sciracco you had in college. And the note I jokingly put on it one day that said “sorry about the scratch”…..LOL
    Congratulations again my friend…. Tim
