Jamie Kitman, New York editor of Automobile Magazine, is driving a $240,000 McLaren sports car across the country in the hopes of meeting as many interesting people as he can. Last week, Kitman spoke with Marketplace after he stopped off at Local Motors, a car company in Arizona that crowd-sources auto design.

Today, Marketplace Tech host David Brancaccio checks in with Kitman from Montgomery, Alabama to discuss the market for classic sports cars.
