Shirley Shahan, 2021 Hyundai Elantra

Episode: 21

Broadcast date: March 22, 2020

Guest: John Biel

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by discussing Hyundai’s recent unveiling of the redesigned 2021 Elantra, and the car’s striking new styling. Jill fills us in on her press-preview drive of the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid. Collectible Automobile magazine Editor-in-Chief John Biel is in-studio next to chat about the great features in the June 2020 issue, including a profile of pioneering female drag racer Shirley Shahan Bridges–the “Drag-On Lady”–and a retrospective on the 1968-70 Plymouth intermediate cars. Tom has another quiz for the gang, this time on automotive advertising taglines, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog. We close out the show by recalling the first hybrid vehicles we ever drove.
