The Carmudgeon Show

English, Hobbies, 1 season, 99 episodes, 4 days, 8 hours, 49 minutes
Part of the Hagerty Podcast Network, 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. 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.

Automotive Toponyms — The Carmudgeon Show Jason Cammisa & ISSIMI's Derek — Ep 92

Lots of cars are named after a geographic location. Many cars are named after a place you'd never see them. We discuss them all. In this episode of The Carmudgeon Show, Jason Cammisa and Derek Tam-Hyphen-Scott discuss cars named after places! But first, an update on some of the boys' cars: Derek's R129 Mercedes 500SL finally has rebuilt hydraulic cylinders — and a functioning roof. Jason's W201 Mercedes 190E 2.3-16 has had a rearview mirror blowout. Jason decides he hates his Scirocco after working on the interior for a few hours — and then dropped it off at the body shop to have its frame measured for straightness because he still loves it. Derek's Citroën still doesn't run. Jason signed up for an autocross in his Lotus Elise SC and can't decide whether to run the Michelin Pilot Sport All-Season 3+ tires, or put the original Yokohamas back on. But then - they got to the subject at hand: Cars named after places! And we made a comprehensive list of every car named after a place. Over 100 of them! Here they are. EVERY CAR NAMED AFTER A PLACE!

More questions, answered! Q&A Part 2 — The Carmudgeon Show with Cammisa and Derek from ISSIMI Ep. 74

Back by popular demand, Jason and Derek return to answer more viewer/listener questions this week. Amongst many similar discussions from last week, topics of interest include: how to make electric cars fun, what generally hated cars are actually great, why the Ferrari F355 is actually terrible, Z3 vs Miata, and why even the best new analog cars will never match the sensation of old analog.    And on the subject of old analog- have you always dreamed of owning a 1994 Hyundai Excel? If you resemble this impressively small minority of cheap car enthusiasts, your time may be now. Jason tells you everything you need to know about this glorious machine that could be yours.   Just like last week, many of this week’s questions will become the topics of future episodes, so if you’re looking for a sneak peak of what’s to come, listen up and enjoy!   This episode is sponsored by Reliable Carriers- mention Carmudgeon when you call and get 10% off your quote!   All this and more, brought to you by the Hagerty Podcast Network.
