236: Expenses of Owning a Car


Johnny and Derek do a one-on-one episode about a subject they are both passionate about – cars! We try not to bring them up too much in the show, but both guys are certified car nuts, so this is a fun episode that hopefully you’ll get something out of as well. Your car is an expense that often gets overlooked as many deem it a necessary cost to live life. Nonetheless, the guys talk how to find a deal in this crazy car market, new cars they are in the market for, cars they love, cars they hate and more in this fun riff of an episode.
