Neoclassic Bustlebacks, Ford Creates New EV Division

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing Ford Motor Company’s recently announced corporate-structure changes–electric vehicles will now be under the Ford Model e division, and gas-engine vehicles will be under the Ford Blue division. Collectible Automobile magazine Editor-in-Chief John Biel joins us to chat about the great features in the April 2022 issue, including the neoclassic, bustleback-styled 1982-87 Lincoln Continental and a Photo Feature on a 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta. Tom has a “turbo or no turbo?” quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a “what if” 1955 Ford Crown Ranchero concept and Jeep’s refreshed-for-2022 Compass compact SUV.
