For the tens—no, make that dozens—of people who enjoy Car and Driver’s Window Shop, the 100thepisode is a milestone worthy of quiet reflection. Think about how much the world has been changed by petty arguments about obscure cars on a Zoom call. How perspectives have shifted, assumptions shattered, and conclusions overturned. It’s one thing for friends to indulge in obscure banter, another thing to expect others to watch.
But several of you have watched. Spending valuable moments of your life watching us obsess over trivial things. For that, we thank you.
For this gala 100th episode, editor-in-chief Tony “T.Q.” Quiroga has issued a diabolical challenge: find a running vehicle that costs $1000 or less. Originally the idea had been to find something under $100, but that won’t even buy a tank of gas. So $1000—ten bucks for each of the 100 episodes—is this week’s challenge.
As if this “weekly” show is produced with scheduled regularity.
The panel expands this time with all the usual gang of goofballs. Besides T.Q. himself, there’s senior editor Elana Scherr once again proving that her inherent sensibility is undermined by a passion for ancient things held together with spray paint. Road & Track’s John Pearley Huffman continues Window Shop’s tradition of featuring a Buick someone has surely been murdered within. Favorite C/D contributor Jonathon Ramsey apparently thinks old Ford Explorers need to be bought in pairs. Executive editor K.C. Colwell offers up something or other. Senior editor Joey Capparella goes with a fermented, ancient Korean thing—like kimchi for the automotive soul. And deputy editor of video Carlos Lago also participates.
That’s 100 irregularly issued episodes down, and nothing but an indefinite future laying in front of us. Such are the vicissitudes of YouTube.
