Our New Podcast – The Classic Car Corner – launches!


Now we are talking – literally! I am excited to announce the launch of our podcast, The Classic Car Corner, sponsored by G.D. Herring, providing insurance for your classic car collection.

The Classic Car Corner podcast is a conversation about classic cars and the automotive experience, as owners, drivers and enthusiasts.

Rekindling some friendships from my grade schools days in the early 80’s, a time when domestic 4 cylinder engines were grossly underpowered, tape decks were chewing up cassettes, and pop up headlights were “the thing” to have, two of my long-time friends and I have created something we hope you really enjoy. Packed with stories about cars, car people and special interviews with experts in every aspect of classic car ownership and care, we aim to take you on a special ride each week into a world of automotive entertainment. Please join John Lockhart, Eric Bensel and myself for an engaging and fun conversation including trivia, history and decades of experience as we explore the world of classic cars. Our new show can be found on your favorite podcasting platforms, including iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify and more.

After you’re done listening to the podcast (and have hit the “like” and “subscribe” buttons), check out my new book, Drop, Throttle, Oversteer: Collecting & Investing in Classic Cars available now on Amazon. This book, like our new show, is a labor of love and I truly hope you enjoy it.

The Classic Car Corner podcast is proudly sponsored by G.D. Herring, providers of specialty insurance for your classic cars. Contact them to see how they can help you get the coverage you need for all your collection.

Jason Paynter is a classic car appraiser, collector and unabashed enthusiast. He lives in Louisville, KY with his beautiful wife and three sons who are (heaven help him) of driving age.

There are different categories for age, and age is where much of a rug’s value comes from. In particular, when a rug goes from a rug “semi-antique” to “antique” the value can increase quite a lot. The age of a rug matters a great deal in giving it value.
