Drive the Bid Podcast: Underrated Cars

A subjective view on cars that deserve more adoration


Have you ever been a fan of a band that was so great but never achieved the success you think it deserved? Sometimes popularity comes over time, years after the group disbands — the band Love would be a good example. Sometimes a band may have been popular when contemporary but then, over time, it has become overshadowed by other bands. Humble Pie is another good example.

We imagine cars are no different.

In episode eight of Drive the Bid, Derek Shiekhi, “Jalopy Jeff” Sutton and I select several vehicles from various eras that we feel may deserve more attention. Maybe it’s a car that’s been overshadowed by a more famous competitor. Or perhaps horsepower has made more recent versions of a particular vehicle garner more attention. Maybe expectations of a vehicle were such that the buff books were let down despite being a good performer. It truly can run the gamut, as you’ll see in the below video.

Other discussions included news on the 2024 Audi A6/A7, a new twist on the Chevrolet Colorado, and the futuristic Faraday Future FF 91 2.0.

Of course, we also discuss our favorite cars that are currently listed on AutoHunter: a custom 1958 Ford Thunderbird, 2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody Jailbreak (whew!), and 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. All this can be seen in the above video from AutoHunter Cinema, created by the experts behind ClassicCars.com, the world’s largest online collector car marketplace. AutoHunter brings forth a dedicated live customer support team, quicker auction listings and exclusive benefits for both buyers and sellers.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.
