Car Matchmaker is an American television show that aired on the Esquire Network from 2014. The show starred comedian and former Seinfeld writer Spike Feresten as he helped car enthusiasts find their dream vehicle. The show's premise was simple: Spike acted as a matchmaker between people looking for cars and the perfect vehicle for them. Each episode revolved around a different individual or couple seeking a particular type of car, from vintage Mustangs to modern supercars.

Joining Spike on every episode was his affable and knowledgeable co-host Jameson Stafford, car expert and owner of Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories. Together, they evaluated each person's individual needs and preferences, then set out to find a car that perfectly matched those desires. The types of cars featured on the show varied extensively, from classic muscle cars to luxury sports cars and everything in between. Spike and Jameson were always up for the challenge of finding the perfect match for each person's unique taste and budget.

One of the show's selling points was the cast's ability to add humor, wit and charm to what could have easily been a dry show about car shopping. Spike had a great sense of humor that added a certain light-heartedness to the program. He combined his expertise in cars with his comedic talents in order to create an entertaining and informative show.

Another unique twist to the show was the use of celebrity car confidantes. Celebrities such as Adam Carolla and Jerry Seinfeld made appearances on the show to lend their car expertise to the deliberations. These special guests brought their unique perspectives and insights on cars to the program, giving the participants a personalized experience that they may not have found anywhere else.

Karrueche Tran, best known as an actress and model, also joined the cast in 2015 for a few episodes adding a new perspective to the show. She joined the show in season two as Jameson's protégé, taking on the role of a co-host and car connoisseur. Her addition helped reinforce the notion that Car Matchmaker didn't discriminate against gender or background when it came to helping people find their dream car.

The show was also successful in introducing viewers to aspects of car culture that might not have been considered in the past. Some episodes tackled unique topics such as "cars that are future classics," giving viewers a glimpse into what the car of the future might look like. Others featured cars that have been forgotten over time but still held a special place in the hearts of those who remembered them.

Despite its niche subject matter, Car Matchmaker was successful in drawing in a wide audience. The show appealed to car enthusiasts and novices alike, with something for everyone. The addition of a comedic twist and celebrity guests helped to elevate the program beyond a simple car-buying show, making it an entertaining and captivating watch.

In conclusion, Car Matchmaker was a unique and entertaining show that found a way to make car-shopping interesting and exciting. Spike, Jameson, Karrueche, and their celebrity friends brought a certain humor and charm to the show, adding a lightness to the subject matter. The show's success was due in large part to its ability to bring a personalized and enjoyable experience to the world of car-shopping.

Car Matchmaker is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (45 episodes). The series first aired on October 14, 2014.
