Episode 1619

Sam joins Leo today to talk about the current trend of "RestoMods," which is taking an older car, restoring it, and then adding more advanced mechanics to it. Modern brake systems, suspensions, and engines to name a few. That way you get a car that looks like a classic but drives like a modern car. The latest iteration is to create a classic car with an electric drive train. And there's a company that's doing Jaguar Type E retrofits. How much? Sam's guess is that conversions will start at $50K.

Greg from Whittier, CA

Greg just a Model X Tesla and he wants to know if there's a midline for music. Leo says that it's mostly personal taste. Start with "Flat" on the EQ settings, that is, in theory, how it was mixed at the recording studio. Then, adjust to his preferences. But a lot of music today is overly compressed as part of the current pop music trend. And he can't fix that. So just play with it until he can get a mix he will like. There's no perfect.
