My Dad's Car

My Dad's Car

A discussion with invited guests about their personal relationships with automotive nostalgia. Despite the title, it doesn't even matter if the topic of discussion is their Dad's car or not. It could be their Mums, their Grans, parents, guardians or even a neighbours. 
If it made an impression, we want to talk about it.

Season 2 - July - November 2023
Season 3 - November 2023 - March 2024
Season 4 - April 2024
