Car Reviewer Micah Muzio Names Five Cars He’s Owned and One He Wants

Car buyers who do their research usually run their options through Kelley Blue Book, an automotive research company that recommends new and used cars, gives up-to-date pricing and shows car listings.

A component of that, its video reviews, are gaining popularity. With more than 600,000 subscribers on YouTube, viewers have been watching Micah Muzio, the company’s video manager, give his opinions on the latest cars since 2007.

In his experience, he tries to approach every review by asking what problem the vehicle is trying to solve. That’s why he’s much more interested in reviewing minivans than supercars.

Although the average used car has significantly increased in price, iSeeCars’s analysis also found some vehicles

Petersen Automotive Museum Exhibit Hosts Best “Cars of Film and TV”

Those of us who did not grow up around cool cars, much less ride in them, looked to television and the movies to give us an up-close shot. Through car-focused TV shows and blockbusters on the big screen, like Starsky and Hutch and Batman 1989, we could vicariously get behind the wheel of some of the hottest and craziest rides. And now the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles is giving cinema fans a chance to see the most iconic cars and oddball creations featured in film and TV.

Visitors can expect to view popular models from Hollywood’s biggest hits, including the Batmobile driven by Michael Keaton in Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) and Ecto-1 emergency vehicle from the Ghostbusters franchise.
