BestRide Podcast: Nicole Wakelin and Chad Kirchner Look Back at 2017 and Forward to Auto Show Season

Posted by

This week, we doubled up on our guests for the BestRide podcast, with Nicole Wakelin from, and Chad Kirchner from…well, everywhere.

It’s beyond the midpoint of the calendar year, and it’s the point where new model introductions are flooding into showrooms. It’s also just ahead of auto show season, beginning with the LA Auto Show in November. We figured it would be a good time to talk to Nicole and Chad about the most improved cars we all drove this year, and what they’re excited about seeing as the show season comes into full swing.

We also highlighted our story on DriveShare, an interesting program from Hagerty Classic Car Insurance that acts as a kind of Airbnb for classic cars, and we reviewed the 2017 Ford Mustang GT Convertible.

The podcast is hosted by editor Craig Fitzgerald, and it’s recorded at the offices of the MetroWest Daily News.
