The challenge facing the lovable band of misfits today is to find a vehicle that costs under $15,000 that's likely to hold its value over the next five years.
Join host and deputy editor Tony Quiroga alongside Trapper John, Hot Lips, Klinger, and Radar as they make amusing remarks about old cars that they probably won't purchase. Insults, obscure references, and jokes about colleagues who aren’t present ensue. And it’s all captured using that miracle technology you should have invested in a year ago: Zoom.
Watch the episode and you'll see contributor John Pearley Huffman's mid-engine Toyota, Jonathon Ramsey's FJ100 Land Cruiser, Quiroga's like-new C4 Corvette with 24,000 miles, and deputy testing director K.C. Colwell's W126 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL. Each car is presented with the passion of the series’ regulars as they try to convince one another that their choice is choicest. Special guest star, former C/D editor, and now automotive engineer David Gluckman brings in a suspiciously ratty but possibly okay Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo. This is the sort of expert analysis upon which you can rely to make smart buying decisions. Maybe.
While this series started as a way to share our common enthusiasm and show off our car-searching skills, as of late, it has become a competition to get the most votes. And with the rules always up for modification, coalition building and near bribery are now the rule. Fortunately, winning doesn’t really matter.
