Jamie Kitman, New York editor of Automobile Magazine, has just completed driving a $240,000 McLaren sports car across the country. Along the way, he made a few pit stops with Marketplace Tech.

Last week, Kitman spoke with Marketplace after he stopped off at Local Motors, a car company in Arizona that crowd-sources auto design.

 

On Monday, Kitman checked in from Montgomery, Alabama to discuss the market for classic sports cars.

 

And today, Kitman joins Marketplace Tech host David Brancaccio as he completes his journey and shares a few of his roadtrip stats. Click on the audio player above to hear more.
