What Is Your Favorite Automotive TV Show?

Though not a show aimed directly at the enthusiast, I have always
enjoyed watching PBS's Motorweek. Recently, I've been trying to catch
The History Channel's AutoManiac. I like it... it's a pretty good
show. Has anyone else been tuning in?

Not much on broadcast except for Motorweek and a few odds-'n'-ends.
No way I'm paying $50/month for cable or more for satellite.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Automotive TV Show?

You know, even though I couldn't car less about trucks, I really like
Trucks! every Sat and Sun at about 1:30 p.m. on Spike. It's because
of Stacy David, the host, and also because of the absence of any other
host that he has to engage in stupid scripted banter. The show is all
Stacy, and this guy knows evvvverything about engines, chassis,
fabrication, painting, you name it. He also rocks on the electric
guitar.

Everything else is second best or worse. Overhaulin' is getting
boring. American Hot Rod is ridiculous; I think I'm only watching for
the inevitable episode where one of Boyd's "family" is going to plant a
big ol one inch spanner right in the middle of his ol bald head. Car &
Driver is good but repetitious of the mag. Horsepower TV is OK for
what it is, an informercial in disguise. I don't get Speed, so I don't
know about Hot Rod TV or anything else. That old Popular Hot Rodding
TV was pretty awful though.

American Muscle Car. Dream Car Garage.
That mutant who Sandra Bullock married,
the guy who makes rolling juke boxes,
the crazies who make the bikes on American
Chopper, they can all
evaporate, IMO.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Automotive TV Show?

I don't watch very much broadcast TV anymore, but my current favorite
automotive "show" is Speed's coverage of my current favorite automotive
sport: the FIA World Rally Championship. The runner up is My Classic Car.

As for bike shows, I enjoy the occasional American Chopper. :)

I don't really watch any of them, but I'm going to have to start watching
SuperTuners.

Tooling down the highway yesterday, I was overtaken and passed by a
mini-train of three super Honda Civics, each with those impressive exhaust
system enhancements. They passed, sounding like someone had just stirred up
a hornet's nest. Wow.

If only my own car made such a wonderful sound.

No shit. I wish he, along with his garage, was my next door neighbor.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Automotive TV Show?

Some of the auto repair/customization shows on Speed Channel. Although
their primary purpose is advertising the products they demonstrate, I
have learned a lot of tips and tricks.

1965 Ford Mustang fastback 2+2 A Code 289 C4 Trac-Lok
Vintage Burgundy w/Black Standard Interior; Vintage 40
16" rims w/BF Goodrich Comp T/A gForce Radial
