The Life of Enzo Ferrari, Richard Rawlings, and Auto News with BJ Killeen | #364
Periodically, a person is born who perseveres through the thick and thin to do great things. We pay homage to one such man with our first guest, industry veteran and author of "Enzo Ferrari: Power, Politics and the Making of an Automobile Empire", Luca Dal Monte. Enzo's life was a rollercoaster ride, from his involvement in World War 1, to the death of his first born son, to the founding of Scuderia Ferrari, and eventual creation of one of the most iconic brand of cars the world has ever known. Shifting gears, we chat with serial entrepreneur and host of Fast N' Loud and Garage Rehab, Richard Rawlings, about the new season of Garage Rehab and upcoming season of Fast N' Loud. Also, hear about Richard's planned reveal of a 1972 Boattail Riviera at the SEMA Show 2019, thoughts on the new Chevrolet Blazer and Ford Bronco, wayward Ferrari F40, and other upcoming events. Closing the show, automotive journalist, BJ Killeen, updates us on the financial woes of Elon Musk and Tesla, Carlos Ghosn situation in Japanese prison, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recent pedestrian safety test results in which the BMW X1 didn't fare so well. Tune in for more on Enzo Ferrari, Garage Rehab, Fast N' Loud, and the latest automotive news.
