"Window Shop" or "Window Shopping" or whatever it's called at any moment is something watched on YouTube. And that is a beast always craving fresh content. So, let's be fresh and contentious.
Working from a suggestion from a WS viewer (no one here dares to claim they're a "fan"), the Car and Driver panel was tasked with finding one car on the Internet around which to build a YouTube presence that attracts millions of eyeballs, leads to the establishment of yet another car auction site, and then results in massive wealth when Peter Chernin throws money at it.

Elana Scherr (who already has a YouTube channel called "Challengeher"), executive editor K.C. Colwell (whose channel would include cow tipping), blessed contributor Jonathon Ramsey (who earns his love), editor-in-chief Tony Quiroga (from atop Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs), and the wholly tertiary John Pearley Huffman (pre-emptively banned by YouTube before actually uploading a video) in a challenge that allows blowing up to 30,000 pretend dollars.
Among cars mentioned: a Porsche model designated greater than a 913 but not quite a 915. A Frankenstein mash-up of Lincoln and Lamborghini, which is insane but alphabetically compatible. An old near-truck from a company that's long dead. Either a Suzuki dump truck or an Autozam, depending on the moment. And a Fisker, picked by some lunatic.
John Pearley Huffman has been writing about cars since 1990 and is getting okay at it. Besides Car and Driver, his work has appeared in the New York Times and more than 100 automotive publications and websites. A graduate of UC Santa Barbara, he still lives near that campus with his wife and two children. He owns a pair of Toyota Tundras and two Siberian huskies. He used to have a Nova and a Camaro.
