We’re celebrating the 100th episode of Window Shop

For the dozens – no, do dozens – of people who love Car and drivers Showcase, the 100eepisode is a milestone worthy of quiet reflection. Think how the world has been changed by petty arguments over obscure cars on a Zoom call. How perspectives have changed, assumptions shattered and conclusions reversed. It’s one thing for friends to indulge in obscure banter, quite another to expect others to watch.

But many of you watched. Spending precious moments of your life watching us obsess over insignificant things. For that, we thank you.

For this gala 100e episode, editor Tony “TQ” Quiroga issued an evil challenge: find a running vehicle that costs $1,000 or less. The original idea was to find something under $100, but that wouldn’t even buy a tank of gas. So $1,000 — ten dollars for each of 100 episodes — is this week’s challenge.

As if this “weekly” broadcast occurred with scheduled regularity.

The panel expands this time with the usual bunch of buffoons. Besides TQ himself, there’s editor Elana Scherr proving once again that his inherent sensibility is undermined by a passion for old things held together with spray paint. Road & Track’s John Pearley Huffman continues the Window Shop tradition of featuring a Buick in which someone was presumably murdered. Favorite CD contributor Jonathon Ramsey apparently thinks old Ford Explorers should be bought in pairs. Editor KC Colwell offers something or other. Editor-in-chief Joey Capparella uses fermented ancient Korean, like kimchi for the automotive soul. And assistant video editor Carlos Lago also participates.

That’s 100 episodes airing irregularly, and nothing but an indefinite future ahead of us. Such are the vicissitudes of YouTube.
