Lead the bidding podcast: Overpriced cars

Worship is a funny thing. Popularity is something that is often strived for, but that does not mean that popularity is good. While we’re not here to suggest that what we believe to be overrated is bad, we’re simply interested in offering a perspective or two on vehicles that may need to be taken down a notch or two.

In the seventh episode of Drive the Bid, Derek Shiekhi, “Jalopy Jeff” Sutton and I select several vehicles from various eras that may have achieved a certain level of popularity among enthusiasts, but perhaps one or more of us feel that popularity was not quite deserved. . at that level. For example, one of my choices was the 1970 Buick GS Stage 1—not because I’m dismissive of it, but because Buick performance enthusiasts are eager to find fault. Cliché comments like “King of Torque!” it ignores the fact that Oldsmobile also offered a 510 lb-ft engine, and the Chevrolet and Pontiac were only 10 behind, a negligible amount considering what really counts is what crosses the finish line first. Are the LS6 Chevelle people talking about the song “Horsepower King”?

That’s an overrated car for another day. 😊

Other discussions included news of the Cadillac Escalade IQ, a demon-powered Chrysler Pacifica, and the BMW Z4 Shooting Brake Concept.

Of course, we’ll also discuss our favorite cars currently featured on AutoHunter: a modified 1987 Chevrolet Corvette Z51, 1969 Oldsmobile Toronadoand a mid-year 1963 Ford Falcon Futura.
