Automotive Lies and Urban Legends: Drive the Bid Podcast

Sifting through the bull to find a nugget of truth


Ever have a friend who tells you an automotive tale that just doesn’t jibe with reality? Or do you keep on stumbling upon bad click-bait online articles from Eastern European car websites with bad information? Maybe there’s that casual meme on Facebook that is patently false, yet brand patriots don’t care about the truth? Then this episode of AutoHunter Drive the Bid Podcast is for you!

Derek Shiekhi and I discuss lame, lying friends and automotive urban legends that lie to the unwitting about the cars we love. Sometimes it’s not intentional but nostalgia has a way of refining history that meets another purpose.

Our Quick Take features the 2001-03 Volkswagen New Beetle RSi, while a quick profile focuses on pioneering aftermarket hot rodder Ed Iskenderian.

For news, we discuss the station wagon that Volkswagen is not planning to send to America, and the Porsche that Delta Airlines is using to help you make your connection.

Finally, we discuss several vehicles currently listed on AutoHunter that include a hot-rodded 1971 Chevrolet Nova, 2006 Corvette Z06 with 2,800 miles, two-tone 1964 Pontiac GTO, and 1977 GMC C2500 Sierra Classic with a nice mix of options.

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.
