Remembering the AMC Eagle, 2021 Chicago Auto Show Is a Go!
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start things off by discussing the Chicago Auto Show’s recently announced 2021 “Special Edition” show, scheduled for July 15-19 as a scaled-down indoor/outdoor event. The gang also chats about a couple of their Chicagoland-traffic pet peeves. Collectible Automobile magazine Editor-in-Chief John Biel joins us to chat about the great features in the June 2021 issue, including detailed histories of the 1981-83 AMC Eagle and 1958-68 Mercury Park Lane. Tom has another “which came first?” quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E and an overview of the best small crossovers of 2021.
The Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast is broadcast every Sunday on Chicago’s WCPT AM 820 at 1:00 PM CST.
