(03-15-2018) – Another great Classic Auto Show is in the books for LA, with expansion to TWO halls and some new additions to the celebrity roster! Of course celebrity cars were also in attendance! Actor/Comedian Tim Allen wasn’t there, but his ‘55 Ford built by Moal Coachworks was, as was former wrestler Bill Goldberg and his cool Dodge Charger!
….Chip Foose’s ‘71 Mustang body was meticulously shrunken down to fit over a 2017 era Mustang Chassis complete with Camaro taillights!
…..Chris Jacobs (Overhaulin’, Long Lost Family) had his ‘68 GTX at the show, altho he wasn’t there….
And Stacey David of “Gearz” had his Mercury Cougar “Interceptor” on hand (note the cool guitar….Stacey is quite the musician as well)
Local LA auto reporter Dave Kunz added his ‘67 Bullitt like Ford Mustang and he later hosted a panel to talk about the classic movie starring the late Steve McQueen, and the buzz that has followed after the REAL Bullitt Mustang showed up in New Jersey.
The real fun for me (and it was quite an honor) was hosting their “Celebrity Stage” on opening day, just like Chris Jacobs did in 2017, and Mike Brewer of “Wheeler Dealers” did on day 2 and 3 this year. I talked with the “who’s who” of those who host car shows on TV. David, Foose, Wayne Carini, Dave Kindig, Dennis Gage, Bogi Lateiner & Rachel DeBarros (All Girls Garage) and Horny Mike & Kevin Mack (Count’s Kustoms). When I wasn’t laughing and asking them questions, fans in attendance had their chance! It was quite a show, (and a Classic Auto Show is coming to Chicago later this year!)
My interview with Wayne and car builder/customizer Steve Moal are on this addition of TAC with the rest of the Celebrity Stage sessions coming over the next 4 weeks.
Also on TAC 108, NASCAR’s Kurt Busch who was in LA for the Auto Club 400 at Fontana. We talk about his newest car and how it got him on TMZ, who is the hottest driver so far this year, why barf bags will never work in a race, and….what happens when you really….gotta go during a race? (Listener question, not mine). Quick comeback….well…it depends! (Cue the rolling of the eyes and Insert rimshot here).
