Re: South Beach Classic's Ted Vernon
I find many of the car shows on TV to be so ridiculous they are all but unwatchable, South Beach Classics included. Ted Vernon reminds me of George C. Scott in the Flimflam Man. The only shows I do watch are: (1) Fantom Works, where Dan Short gives his customers decent quality workmanship for what seems to be honest prices; (2) Dave at The Guild in Canada, who seems like a truly nice guy and has some talented people working for him; and (3) Mark Worden at Graveyard Carz in Springfield, OR, who does some really high-quality (and I am certain high-dollar) Mopar restorations, although that show was all but unwatchable until they got rid of "Daren" and all the staged drama that surrounded him. Worden is cast as a real nut, but that is what some viewers want.
Also, Wayne Carini (Chasing Cars) in Connecticut has an amazing knowledge of obscure cars and their values. Oh, and the British guys, Mike and Edd, are entertaining at times, but I really don't care all that much about Italian, British or Japanese cars, and then there are the other shows where they destroy old American iron by lowering car and trucks to the ground and plant 22-inch wheels and tires on them.
