Drive the Bid Podcast: Guilty Pleasures

A discussion on cars we love but others bust on


We can’t truly know why we like certain things. Despite what we may think, some of the things may be objectively or subjectively bad, but they’re good to us — think of the Ramones as an example. They aren’t great musicians, and their repertoire does not rival Wagner, but they did carve out a place for themselves that exploits something that people find attractive.

That possibility exists for automobiles too.

In episode nine of Drive the Bid, Derek Shiekhi, “Jalopy Jeff” Sutton and I select several vehicles that are often maligned but happen to hit a special spot for us. Rover, Citroen, Lexus, and more are discussed, and sometimes the appreciation goes beyond a party of one, as you can see in the below video.

Other discussions include news on the announcement for the Volkswagen ID. Buzz for the American market, 2024 Jeep Wrangler pricing and features, and an unusual Toyota Prius Le Mans Centennial GR Edition.

Of course, we also discuss our favorite cars that are currently listed on AutoHunter: a 1956 Ford that harkens back to the days of business coupes, and a pair of Jaguars: a 2008 Jaguar XKR coupe and a 1990 XJ-S convertible. All this can be seen in the above video from AutoHunter Cinema, created by the experts behind, 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.
