ARE YOU FASTER THAN A REDNECK? WE CERTAINLY HOPE NOT AT MSCC
Many car guy shows come and go that are forgettable at best, but we believe that 'Are You Faster Than a Redneck?' is a winner.
The show is an acquired taste that may not sit well with some viewers, however we really like this show-even the host.
THE REAL STARS OF 50s & 60s TELEVISION-THE WORKING VEHICLES OF A SMALL TOWN TV STATION
Most of the Baby Boom demographic looks back at the 1950s and 60s as the Golden Era of television.
In some cases like Gunsmoke, Andy Griffith or Bewitched there's a solid case for golden era status but, in many cases, live TV and major productions were spontaneous and crude.
That concept was even more evident with the small local television stations where everything was done live on a budget with giant equipment that had to somehow be made portable.
They had to rely on any available vehicles to get the show out to the public.
APRIL 2013 A WILD 1989 VOLVO- A CLARK KENT CAR WITH A BIG SURPRISE UNDER THE HOOD
240 model Volvos are not the stuff of car guy dreams. They look like something that should have a front door where you can grab a beer out of them and it is a scientific fact that chicks do not dig these cars.
They were the movie cars driven by suburban housewives and eccentric left wing professors during their long run as a bland and functional ride.
Volvo produced a few interesting cars like the 544 and P-1800, but interesting is not a label that can be easily applied to a 240 series Volvo-until we ran into this 1989 Volvo 245 at a car show.
APRIL 2013:THIS 1965 CHEVY IMPALA SS CONVERTIBLE IS THE PERFECT RESTORATION
Those of us from a certain age remember a golden era of TV that included 'Bonanza' in the Sunday night lineup. The Cartwright boys were the toast of Virginia City and rode into town from their sprawling Ponderosa Ranch many times over their long TV run.
They rode magnificent horses during the series, including a beautiful Pinto owned by hot-headed Little Joe Cartwright.
There was one time the Cartwright boys showed up with a few TV friends like Samantha (Bewitched) Stevens and Napoleon (Man from UNCLE) Solo in frontier Virginia City with a different kind of transportation: the 1965 model lineup from Chevrolet.
