"Counting Cars"

Monday, Jul, 13 2015

One of the fun things I did over my extended weekend at the Iola Old Car Show was meet Ryan Evans from the History Channel's "Counting Cars" show.


The Vegas-based car flipping show is one of many I enjoy watching.


Nice guy, and he talks about a couple of things regarding the show, including what the star, "The Count" Danny from Count's Kustoms in Vegas is like to work with.


Plus, Ryan's favorite all-time vehicle.


Hear the interview on the Monday PhilCast show.

One more picture from the car show, and that would be the 1963 Corvair in PhilCast blue that caught my eye in the car coral, where everything parked is for for sale.

In the end reality set in, and the fact that I have no place to store the car (and that I know very little about them) won out and I did NOT pull the trigger on this one.
The hunt continues.

PhilCast Classic Clips on the Friday show.

It's time to spend my day drooling over classic cars at the Iola Old Car Show.

I will be tweeting some pictures of some of my favorite cars from the grounds Friday afternoon.

Back at it behind the microphone on Monday.

Mr. Bonz

Thursday, Jul, 9 2015

Imagine driving down College Ave. and as you pull up to a stop sign you see THIS guy at the wheel of the car next to you...

It's happening in Louisville, and for the most part people are loving it.

I'll have the story of the one they call "Mr. Bonz" as part of the Thursday PhilCast.

Lips LaBelle at 4:30-ish to shoot the breeze and give up the Hollywood news and gossip as well.

And say hello to my little friend "Z-Bart", as Zak the associate producer of the show fills in for Reggie.

BMI B.S.

Wednesday, Jul, 8 2015


For a long time I've ripped the entire idea of the Body Mass Index or BMI.

It's more unrealistic than me thinking I'll ever meet Kate Middleton.

And I LOVE this NY Times piece that Reggie the Executive Producer sent me helping to prove my point.

Which one of these figures is overweight?

BMI numbers would say ALL of them are.

I rest my case.

BMI=B.S.

It's IOLA time baby!

Tuesday, Jul, 7 2015

This will be the 43rd year of the annual Iola Old Car Show.

Turns out, I've been at a lot of them!

I started going in the late 80's and have only missed a few years.

As a classic car guy, it doesn't get better than Iola weekend, when a sleepy little town turns into the host of one of the nation's largest car shows of the season each year.

We'll talk more about the show with the editor of Old Cars Weekly this afternoon at 4:30-ish on the show.
