#74 The supercar killer Nissan GT-R

August 1, 2022

1969 brought the venerable Nissan Skyline GT-R to life, but it took another 30 years and a video game to catapult the car nicknamed Godzilla from local Japanese acclaim to worldwide recognition and desire. So which of the 5 generations is the best GT-R? And how ridiculous will Steve look getting out of one? That's this week on Best in Class.

#73 The small but mighty Chevy Nova

#73 The small but mighty Chevy Nova

July 25, 2022

The Chevrolet Nova started life as a simple trim level, but graduated to it's own car before turning into a badge engineered Japanese-American hybrid. With that kind of tortured past, was it ever any good? And is the Nova just an also-ran to the Camaro and Mustang? And did Steve's Ferrari ever get fixed? All this and more on today's episode.

#72 The almost as good Porsche Cayman(with special guest Derek)

July 18, 2022

The Porsche Cayman is only for those that can't afford a 911. But that said, which one is the best one if that is all you can buy? We roped in current owner Derek to walk us through the OTHER poor man's Porsche to tell us why we should consider the Cayman, and whether or not he can get Adam to admit that it is kind of good.

#71 The thunder down under Holden Ute

#71 The thunder down under Holden Ute

July 11, 2022

Utes (or utility vehicles) are almost a meme of Australian car culture. They survived there - and only there - from the 1950's up to a few years ago, while the US only got the El Camino and the Ranchero car-trucks. So what made the Aussie's love their Utes so much? And how do we get one here in America? All that and more on this week's Best in Class.

#70 The last of the breed BMW M2 (with special guest Charlie)

#70 The last of the breed BMW M2 (with special guest Charlie)

July 4, 2022

The BMW M2 has been described as the most basic BMW M car available today. It has also been described as the most fun. Coincidence? We think not. And joining Steve and Adam in that opinion today is the brand new owner of a BMW M2 Competition, Charlie! He's going to tell our hosts why they are oh-so-wrong to pick anything else over an M2.

#69 The cheap as chips MGB (with special guest Jenn)

June 27, 2022

The classic British roadster exemplified in the MGB is one of the best selling classics of all time. It lasted 18 years, 3 generations, and more than 500,000 sold. And to find the best one, we actually tracked down an owner! Jenn is going to walk us through her 1979 example and tell Adam and Steve why they picked the wrong cars as Best in Class.

#68 The peak-boomer Plymouth Prowler

#68 The peak-boomer Plymouth Prowler

June 15, 2022

The Plymouth - and later Chrysler - Prowler arrived at a very unique point in history when Titanic ruled the box office, you were secretly listening to NSYNC, and Y2K was a real concern. But the world didn't end and the Prowler lived on for five glorious years. But which one is best, and how good would Steve's hair look blowing in the wind as he drove one around? All that and more on this week's Best in Class.

June 8, 2022

The Suzuki Jimny has conquered mountains, trails, and streams around the world over it's four generations, but can it conquer the hearts of Steve and Adam? And which generation was the best for the little offroading brat? All that and more on today's Best in Class.

#66 The rebellious Dodge Ram

#66 The rebellious Dodge Ram

May 16, 2022

The Dodge Ram has always played third fiddle to Ford and Chevy. Even in it's best years, it only manages to sell half as many trucks as the leaders. But is the Dodge Ram secretly the Saab of the truck world, destined to be bought by those to want something just a little more rebellious? And where they ever any good? Today Steve and Adam get to the bottom of the Ram.

#65 The Arnie-approved Hummer

#65 The Arnie-approved Hummer

May 9, 2022

The Hummer came out at a very distinct time in American history - when bigger was better, gas was cheap, and global warming was something only Europeans cared about. It managed to live through a recession, 3 generations, and is now coming back as an EV. But are any of them any good? And can Adam get Steve to trade his Ferrari for a classic Hummer? That's this week on Best in Class.
