Some Car Companies Are Just Bad Parents — The Carmudgeon Show — Ep. 42
Automotive alliances and buy-outs are commonplace. Sometimes they go well: BMW did a great job of bringing back Mini in the early 2000s. Sometimes they go poorly: BMW did a terrible job with Rover during the same period. But BMW isn’t the only marque that’s done this, in fact most of the big players do: Ford with Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Volvo, GM with Saab, Chrysler with Lamborghini, Fiat with Lancia, Alfa Romeo, and Ferrari, Volkswagen with Lamborghini, Ducati, Bugatti, Bentley, the list goes on. In this episode, Jason and Derek discuss which marques are good parents, you know, the ones with happy, well-adjusted profitable and self-confident companylets, and which ones neglected, mismanaged, and otherwise stunted their charges with often tragic or fatal results. The Carmudgeon Show is a comedic, information-filled conversation with Jason Cammisa and Derek Tam-Scott, two car enthusiasts who are curmudgeonly beyond their years. Proving you don’t have to be old to be grumpy, they spend each episode talking about what’s wrong with various parts of the automotive universe. Despite their best efforts to keep it negative, they usually wind up laughing, happy, and extolling their love for cars. Which just makes them angrier and more bitter. ISSIMI is an enthusiast-owned, full-service specialist offering sales, consignment, collection management, service, and consulting to discerning enthusiasts and collectors. Specializing in complex transactions that include international services for exceptional cars, ISSIMI’s San Francisco Bay Area and Europe-based teams of experts pride themselves on transparency and knowledge. Jason Cammisa is an automotive journalist, social-media figure, and TV host with over 250 million views on YouTube alone. Jason’s deeply technical understanding, made possible by a lifelong obsession with cars, allows him to fully digest what’s going on within an automobile — and then put it into simple terms for others to understand. Also, a Master’s Degree in Law trained him to be impossible to argue with. Derek Tam-Scott still tries. He’s a young automotive expert with old-man taste in cars, and a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering — which means he knows how to be civil to Jason. Or at least he tries. With a decade and a half’s experience buying, selling, driving and brokering classic and exotic cars, he’s experienced the world’s most iconic cars. And hated most of them.   Don't forget to visit: https://www.issimi.com/​ ISSIMI Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/issimiofficial​ ISSIMI Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/issimiofficial/​ Podcast available on: ISSIMI Soundcloud: Support the show (http://www.issimi.com)

#295 2021 Ford Bronco Sport First Impressions; New Chevrolet Bolt EUV
The Bronco name is back, and this week we share our first impressions on the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco Sport, catering to those looking for a rugged, off-road capable vehicle. We discuss how the small SUV, sibling of the larger Bronco, handles rocks and mud, as well as its engine performance and interior comfort. Chevrolet announced an updated version of its all-electric Bolt and an all-new Bolt EUV. We discuss the key changes for the Bolt EV, and how the inclusion of GM's Super Cruise active driving assistance system might appeal to those interested in Tesla's Autopilot system. We also talk about the right time to cut your losses on a vehicle that needs constant repairs, if Consumer Reports is considering testing 3-wheeled BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicle) like Arcimoto and Aptera, why all-weather tires are not as popular as all-seasons, and we wonder which of our neighbors lost their emu.     ----------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
