Cars of My Parents’ Homeland: Drive the Bid Podcast

What cool cars came from Mom and Dad’s country?


My parents were born in Argentina and emigrated to California in 1964. Growing up, I made several family trips to their homeland to visit family. Being the budding car guy that I was, I absorbed everything automotive I could. One thing that struck me were the variations of American cars: the Chevrolet 400 and Chevy Coupé, Dodge GTX and Coronado, Ford Falcon, and more. In this week’s edition of AutoHunter.com‘s Drive the Bid podcast, I showed partner Derek Shiekhi several of these quirky American expats.

For news, we discussed a Bentley outdoors/off-road experience in Rhode Island, the 2025 Mini Cooper Countryman John Cooper Works, and an update on Steve Magnante, everyone’s favorite Barrett-Jackson emcee.

And Derek threw an automotive puzzle at me that I simply could not determine. Can you figure out the connection?

And, finally, Derek and I chose some of our favorite cars currently listed on AutoHunter, including 1993 Isuzu Elf 150 dually, 1987 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Silverado 4X4, and a Subaru-powered 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster replica.

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.
