Low-Cost Luxury Cars of 1966, Favorite New-Car Features
Host Tom Appel and co-host Jill Ciminillo start off the show by discussing several of vehicles Tom drove this week at a local media event; Tom was especially impressed by the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz and 2022 Volkswagen Taos. Tom and Jill also discuss some of their favorite new-car features, such as blind-spot alert systems and rearward-sliding sun visors. John Biel, Editor-in-Chief of Collectible Automobile magazine, joins the show to talk about the October issue, which is on newsstands now. We talk about this issue’s full-length feature articles on the low-cost luxury cars of 1966, and the 1986-93 Buick Riviera. John sticks around to participate in this week’s Car Stuff Power Quiz. Recent Consumer Guide CG Daily Drive posts discussed include a Photo Feature of the 1970 Plymouth Sport Suburban station wagon, and a First Spin review of the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz.
