Listen now
Imagine cruising down the street in a classic 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo with a 350 cubic inches two-barrel engine, looking as good as the day it rolled out of the factory. That’s exactly what Hollywood Car Consultant Josh Hancock is proud to present. With 127,000 miles on the odometer, this car still runs like a dream and is in top-notch condition. But Josh isn’t the only one with exciting news – Alan recently acquired a 1975 MG Midget, a barn find with only 23,000 miles on the clock! Josh Carr, the mastermind behind matching cars with characters in films and TV, might be facing a slower Hollywood due to COVID and streaming services cutting back. However, Georgia and New Mexico are taking advantage of tax credits, making it more affordable to shoot there. Josh is famous for aging cars on set to fit the time period accurately, and with the rise of more affordable CGI, it’s a wonder how this will change the industry. Karl Brauer – Automotive Industry Analyst, Forbes Autos Contributor, North American Car and Truck of the Year juror and board member and Executive Analyst for ISeeCars.com shares that according to a recent study by iseecars.com, used cars are selling faster than new cars. Hybrid cars like the Ford Maverick and the all-new Toyota Land Cruiser are selling like crazy. Gas-guzzlers are slower to sell. The study suggests that people are not buying new cars as much as they used to. The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid is an ideal choice for SUV and truck enthusiasts who want to drive off-road without feeling like they’re on a rocky ride. The 2024 McLaren 750 S is unequivocally the best performance car you can buy right now. It outperforms its predecessor and rivals, and gives you the confidence to drive it harder knowing it’s talking to you. Up next is BJ Killeen – Automotive Journalist and Voice of Reason.  BJ shares with us that Ford’s Chairman Bill Ford expressed his frustration with the fluctuating policies of the US government regarding the automotive industry. Ford is committed to scaling up its EV business, but the company lost $4.7 billion on its EV business last year, which is not sustainable. Even companies like Toyota and Mercedes-Benz, which have been switching to EVs, are also losing money. VinFast, a Vietnamese automobile manufacturer, attempted to enter the EV market but received negative reviews, and the majority of their sales are to companies owned by the billionaire owner. On the other hand, Ford released a 60th-anniversary package for the Mustang GT premium trim and unveiled the Shelby super snake version of the Mustang. They also opened the application process for the Mustang GT D, starting at around $325,000. Bringing in the rear is Brian Moody – Executive Editor of Auto Trader.com and KBB.com.
