Car-Themed Culinary Creations: Drive the Bid Podcast

High-octane appetizers, entrees, and desserts


Cars are such a part of the American culture that they’ve influenced products around them. Lucky kids can go to sleep in race-car beds. Adults can buy shoes specifically designed for driving. And every now and then, gearheads can go to the movies and watch a film about one of their automotive heroes. On this week’s episode of AutoHunter’s Drive the Bid Podcast, Luke Lamendola and I share our ideas for automotive-themed restaurants and their whimsically named menu items. 

We also cover the news about the 2024 Nissan Z Heritage Edition, which marks 55 years of the Z sports car and honors the 1969 Datsun 240Z. Will Luke end up getting one as a press vehicle to review for the ClassicCars TV channel on YouTube? We sure hope so.

As we’ve been doing the past several episodes, Luke and I share a couple of car-related memes, including one made by Corey, a new member of the AutoHunter team.  

To close out the episode, we discuss our favorite cars currently up for auction on AutoHunter. Luke’s excited about a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle with a 415ci V8 under the hood and a 385-powered 1967 Chevrolet Camaro with an upgraded five-speed manual gearbox.

I’m drawn to a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette that’s been with the same owner for 44 years and fitted with a 383ci V8 as well as its polar opposite, a Japanese-market 1998 Mitsubishi Pajero Mini XR-II
