Show Notes

The Carmudgeon Show is back! ...for now. And so too is the Nissan Z, and it’s a looker. But fear not, Jason and Derek are able to find things to complain about when it comes to the 400Z Proto. And speaking of complaining, they are less than enthusiastic about the heinous looks of the new G80 and G82 BMW M3 and M4.

In the course of discussing updates, it emerges that Derek has bought his first EV, which launches a discussion about the Lucid Air, a spectacular, world-altering all-new EV which Jason describes as Tesla 2.0...and he seems to be genuinely excited about both the company and the car. He and Derek agree that the Porsche Taycan is a joke of a car compared to either the Lucid Air or the Tesla Model S.

They also take the opportunity to discuss what’s next in terms of content: Jason is building a studio to use to make content for Hagerty, and Derek describes the mission of his new show, BTS (behind the scenes) with DTS, which is aimed at showcasing the old cars he loves to a new audience.

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.
