South Beach Classic's Ted Vernon

Seems as though I saw something where he was in jail for beating his wife Robin?..true or just scam on the internet?

Unless he ran into the sun. I think no more than a few minutes and she would melt.

Re: South Beach Classic's Ted Vernon

While a search of news boards shows nothing of him beating her, it does appear they are at least split:

Re: South Beach Classic's Ted Vernon

She seemed very sweet on the show but that's usually just in front of the cameras on these reality shows.

Ted Vernon is worth $15 million, was a boxer and has been on a few TV shows & movies before doing the car collecting thing.

Re: South Beach Classic's Ted Vernon

The screen shot in post #4 above was posted to Robin's FB page on 12/1 and she didn't remove it. Perhaps he did beat her. I say he should do time if that's what he did to her.

Re: South Beach Classic's Ted Vernon

I can't stand the guy... obnoxious, doesn't give a crap about the cars he has, most of them appear to be turds, but it seems to work for him! I watched an episode on DVR last night and he called a Plymouth Satellite a Road Runner, and lots of other things he doesn't know, but hey, he is a wealthy man, so it's working!

In all seriousness that depends on one's definition of "wealthy man". I would choose my life with my wife (married 23 years) over a life alone at that age.

Re: South Beach Classic's Ted Vernon

With 15 million net worth I doubt he'll ever have to be alone.

I like the show myself but then I like most all TV shows about cars and trucks.

I'm following Robin on facebook, she has as many friends as facebook allows.

Re: South Beach Classic's Ted Vernon

it is what it is I guess. The new lady on the show (whether she is "his" lady or not) is quite easy on the eyes..

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.
