This week on the Drive the Bid podcast from AutoHunter.com, Derek Shiekhi and I had a tête-à-tête of sorts to show each other something from our own respective automotive worlds. Inspired by the “Today I Learned” (TIL) meme that has permeated the Internet and has inspired its own Reddit.com community, Derek schooled me on proper Bugatti Veyron maintenance, and I showed Derek why I think the 1964 Pontiac GTO was the first muscle car.
So, a bit of objective history, a bit of subjective history. What’s your take on the subjective?
Derek and I also chatted about the news, from Steve Magnante’s health (no update, so stable), an uptick of manual transmission sales, and a Mercedes-Benz PHEV that managed 58 miles for Car and Driver before the gas engine kicked in. For our AutoHunter picks, Derek chose a 1997 Ferrari F355 Spider, while I chose a 1966 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 just so I could demonstrate its authenticity could be determined by the “5V” on the data plate.
