It’s car week! Or rather, it was car week when Jason and Derek recorded their first in-person Carmudgeon episode since before the pandemic. In this episode, they catch up on recent automotive happenings, as well as discussing Car Week and whether it’s worth making the pilgrimage to attend. Jason shares his impressions of both Derek’s Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce and the Ferrari 288 GTO that he drove, and Derek shares some observations about the future of market for collector and enthusiast cars, including which ones are likely to move in the future, and which ones whose best days may be behind them in terms of market interest. They discuss why a Jaguar D-Type is worth less than a McLaren F1 and this of course is logically followed by a discussion of BMW E30 vs 944  and then the VW ID4 because these two cannot stay on the same page for more than a few seconds.

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.
