Bullitt Mustang Auction, EV Tax Credits
Broadcast date: December 22, 2019
Guest: John Kraman
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing the phasing out of the federal tax credit for electric vehicles, and how consumers and automakers will be affected. Jill fills us in on her preview-drive experience with Mazda’s new-for-2020 CX-30 compact crossover. John Kraman, Lead TV Commentator/Analyst for Mecum Auctions, calls in for an interview on the upcoming auction of the original 1968 Ford Mustang GT driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt, and Mecum’s upcoming Kissimmee event. Tom has another quiz on automobile/movie-title puns, and Damon runs down the articles posted this week on The Daily Drive blog. We wrap up the show by sharing our favorite movie cars.
The Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast is broadcast every Sunday on Chicago’s WCPT AM 820 at 1:00 PM CST. It is available as a podcast shortly thereafter.
