The C&C Auto Show is a nationally syndicated radio talk show based in Augusta, GA. The hosts, Aaron Clements and John Ryan Mooney, are expert automotive technicians who both run an automotive repair shop during the week, and then host the show on Saturday mornings from 8 to 10 Eastern time.
When they arn’t talking about cars, you may find them talking about planes, boats, or even American History.
Aaron loves all types of cars, trucks, and airplanes but seems to lean toward small sports cars and antique cars or trucks. He drives a Mazda Miata that the top hardly ever goes up on. On rainy days, he drives a Prius. He also has a 1929 Model A and a 1955 Ford Truck that are in various stages of restoration.
He is an instrument, commercial and complex rated pilot. Though he does not fly very often these days, he still loves airplanes. He does however spend a fair amount of time in his Stingray 185 boat. It is his love of cars, trucks, boats, airplanes and people that makes him enjoy answering all transportation related questions.
John Ryan loves anything with a gas or diesel engine in it. His daily driven vehicle is a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with a Duramax Diesel engine and 6 speed Allison. He has made several modifications to take this truck to the next level. The truck has dynoed as high as 650 hp and 1100 ft lbs of torque at the rear tires. It is a great street truck and will embarrass most Camaros and Mustangs.
When the weather is nice he enjoys riding his flat black Harley sportster iron. He also enjoys riding his Walker Evans edition Polaris RZR1K. It is lifted with 32″ intimidator tires and still has enough to bottom out at speeds at 90mph.
One of his favorite vehicles in the summer is his stingray 230sx boat. It has a fuel injected mercruiser 350, with a 23 pitch prop and will cruise along a 60mph. He tows the boat with a 2008 GMC Topkick 5500 with the Duramax/Allison combo.
As you can see John Ryan enjoys anything with an engine and cannot leave good enough alone!
