B Squad Hotrod: 4 guys building cars and hot rods
About This Show
Join the four amateurs: Steve (Woodchuck), Brad (Hollywood), Colt (Train) and Nick (Lefty) here at B Squad Hotrod.
We're just a bunch of amateurs getting to the meat and bolts of restoring and repairing real cars for our enjoyment. And hopefully for your education and enjoyment. Because educating us...that's impossible.
