Robert gets things going right away by asking Rich and Mark what muscle cars they'd each put in their imaginary garages--which yields some surprising answers (0:31). Then Robert asks the two authors to detail the history of the hemi engine and how that translates into the collector market (11:30) and Rich introduces the topic of cars that were owned by soldier's who never returned from Vietnam and the importance of telling those stories (14:58).

Then, Robert asks Rich and Mark to share some of their surprising finds while researching the book (23:57) and to speculate a bit on the future of muscle cars and the automotive industry entire (28:43). Finally, the authors share where you can find them and their writings (30:37).

If you pre-order Rich & Mark's book now through the March 30th publication date, you can get a set of classic muscle car images. Details here:
