Thanks for bringing that forward. I respect Troy Ladd’s work. The name of the show is “The Ride That Got Away”. I had to really search to figure out where and when it was on. It’s on FYI network which I don’t watch and isn’t in my favorite channels. It’s on Sat nights at 9 here. Appears there’s only 4 episodes so far. It seems like an expensive concept to search for and recreate someone’s dream car. I hope it’s well funded.

PS they’re taking submissions on the website.

The biggest problem facing America today is that lies are so widely accepted as truths.

Its ok for a change. Fairly informative but they are by no means professionals. I guess the main reason I watch it is Emily
Must admit my fav show is Iron Resurrection
Emily likes to make her shirts extra tight and revealing. She’s the life of that party.

Re: Automotive TV programming

Well no sense in giving my favorite show as almost all have at least some fake drama/timeline/results but can give some favorite catagories.

Best Looking Cars - Graveyard Carz

Best Looking Car Chick- Don't know her name but wife of the owner on Texas Metal. At least I think that is what the show is called. That blonde is smoking hot.

Most Gaudy Paint Jobs- Overhauling, Foose is certainly talented but does every car have to be Tri colored or pin striped

Most Fake Drama- Fantom works

Biggest Di#*head- Dwyane (Forman) on American Hot Rod, Closely followed by Boyd.

Anyone else?

I still look back fondly at the car show in Beaufort that you, Kevin D and I attended in I think, 2002. It was hotter than the hinges on the gates of hell that day!
Hope you are well, my friend.
Good times for sure my friend! And that was a killer hot day down in Beaufort for sure. Haven't heard from Kevin lately but we do keep in touch.

Ol Paint's owner has taken good care of it, I don't think he realized just how well traveled my old elky was, he's had several people tell him they recognized it. He does know that it's a great driver and he's even outrun some mustangs with it at the strip. It needs a bigger carb and fuel line to really run though, I tuned for fuel mileage with a that little 750 Holley.

I'm doing well, retired and taking it easy. I going to sell my Harley and maybe get another Chevelle or elky.

Elcaminos are special!
I'd rather walk around with a Chevrolet hubcap in my hand than drive a Ford

Re: Automotive TV programming

I see no loss with Fantomworks. He’s a douche and his work sucks. I wouldn’t let him restore a bicycle.
I like Dave Kindig and Graveyard Carz. Mark Workman isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but the last couple seasons have gotten better with more focus. On the cars.
I more watch programming on Motor Trend on Demand. Roadkill, Roadkill Garage, Hot Rod Garage, Dirt Everyday.
It’s well worth the $50/year to subscribe. Plus most of the shows on discovery and MotorTrend Channel are on there with no commercials.

I agree with all except the most gaudy paint jobs. I give that award to Counts Kustoms. Please let the 70's rest in peace. I do have a thing for Courtney as well.

Yes I like their cars.Everything isn't slammed to the ground and has ridiculously big wheels.


I think you may be referring to Amanda on Iron Resurection…..


Whats with the " famous Foose fade? " Plus I like my door handles,mirrors and emblems


Must admit I sometimes have the same reaction as Dan when I find some of the things on my cars.


Yep

Re: Automotive TV programming

I really like the Road Kill shows. It is just fun to watch them pull a boat to the lake, pull the engine out of the truck, put it in the boat, and spend the day in the boat. They always prove that when you cut corners, you end up broke down on the road somewhere.

It would be very difficult to keep your mind on business when she goes along to look at another project.....

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Re: Automotive TV programming

My personal favorite is the Menards Chevy Show when I can find it, usually Sunday mornings on what used to be Velocity channel.
My current favorite is Iron Resurrection along with Garage Squad.

I think just about all the Dream Car Garage episodes where good. Peter's segments where always packed with information in a clear and concise format. Most individual segments on their shows had more content the hour long bozo antic filled show of today.


See for yourself...
