Tyson Hugie Interview: Drive the Bid Podcast

Acura superfan tells his tale


We have a special guest for this week’s AutoHunter Drive the Bid Podcast! He is a local automotive scenester in Phoenix whose influence can be felt way beyond the Grand Canyon State. He’s also a contributing writer to the Journal and AutoHunter.

Mom’s 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix five-speed

Growing up with cars, washing Mom’s and Dad’s vehicle was a family affair for Tyson Hugie. And though a Chevrolet Celebrity ended up being his first car, Tyson gravitated to Acura and has remained an influencer of sorts for Honda’s near-luxury brand.

Logically, he’s a Future Collector Car Symposium panelist at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction too. He’s driven to Alaska in his ILX (a gift from American Honda Motor Company, believe it or not) and has appeared on Jay Leno’s Garage.

Among Tyson’s collectible Acuras is a Desert Mist 1994 Legend LS Coupe with a six-speed manual and – get this – 500,000 miles. Yet despite the Acura fetish, Tyson owns a trusty, 460-powered 1994 Ford F-250 truck and lusts for a 1950 Buick.

Join Derek Shiekhi and me as we discuss cars with Tyson, including our AutoHunter picks that include a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette, 1969 Camaro SS, and 1978 Pontiac Trans Am.

AutoHunter Cinema has plenty of other videos and podcasts 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.
