Bill likes hearses. Jessica helps us visit what the term “reputable dealer” means. Dawn dreams of being able to bid at Mecum or Barret Jackson. Ben informs us of a weird monthly charge scheme from BMW. Beka makes some hard decisions on what to do with her G8. We also tackle listener questions:

  • Pro-driving, or pro autonomous?

  • What’s the best car for a new-driving teen?
  • What to do for cars that have been sitting too long—how do you get a car that has been sitting too long back into running order?
