Jonny Smith of The Late Brake Show on YouTube has done quite a bit in his automotive career. From co-hosting the UK automotive program Fifth Gear, to Mud Sweat and Gears on BBC America, to writing for such publications as Car Magazine and Classic Car, Jonny has seemingly done it all. As an enthusiast of electric vehicles, Jonny also built and held the record for the worlds quickest electric car in a highly modified 1974 Enfield E8000 that was dubbed “Jonny’s Flux Capacitor”.
But make no mistake, this man doesn’t live on electricity alone, as a wickedly cool 1968 Dodge Charger complete with a 383 cubic inch big-block and 4-speed also resides in his garage. On this week’s Hemmings Hot Rod BBQ, we pull an obscure 1987 Owosso Pulse Litestar from our classifieds and then talk to Jonny about his career, his new show and the future of automobiles.
