Segment 2: Hot Hot Hot
Craftsman auctioned off their Comet Caliente for $100,000 and every cent went to charity! We chat about some cars on the floor, like Pennzoil’s Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

Segment 5: Craftsman: Made to Race
Do you think you could make the Craftsman Comet Caliente? Chad and Kevin tell us how their main inspiration in the Caliente project was to build something that anybody could build with a standard set of Craftsman tools.

What company made the first disk brakes? Caller Jeff pulls the answer out of his knowledgeable noggin and wins a $25 Craftsman gift card. Then, we learn more about the ’65 Comet Caliente.

Segment 14: Here’s to Earning It
When you are handed things, like cars, to you in your life by your parents, it can rob you of the experience of earning it for yourself. Alan tells us how his dad’s refusal to buy him a car made him the man he is today.
