    "Lost in Transmission" - Rutledge Wood new series, with a D

    Top Gear US host and Georgia's own Rutledge Wood has a new series starting on 5/7 called Lost in Transmission, set in Peachtree City, just south of ATL.

    First episode has local D that he restores, or at least gets running (from what I can gather from the trailers). Looks like a faded black painted car ?

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Not a "local" D, since they could not find the "story line" they wanted locally. Project car was transported to ATL area.

    Some people will be surprised with the owner of the project car (former forum member) and others already know.

    A running DeLorean was used for part of the show and this car was also not "local", but brought to the ATL area.

    There are a few other teaser trailers out there that will tell most of the back story (some since March 30th).

    This does not endear me to watch your show.

    If I wanted to watch retards run around and scream while trying to break things, I would have gotten a job in Special Education working with trainables.

    It wasn't cool when Quentin Wilson did this same thing, and it's not cool for Chunk here, either.

    There were a couple of "easier" D projects that were offered to cast and crew, but the stories were not "good enough" for TV.

    A project similar to Project Vixen was offered (basically put all the parts back together), but that was not enough of a challenge.

    Well, they got their "challenge" (and then some), they got their interesting back story, and they got an interesting character.

    As for the "driver" DeLorean, they ended up having to "down-play" it (as stock) when it was actually a Stage II upgrade car.

    Such is "Reality TV" and a car restoration show on the History Channel.

    Which therein lies the irony of a channel entitled "History" that produces content that is more fictitious than historical. But I digress.

    If it turns out to be a decent, respectful episode, I'll give it a chance when it makes it's way online. But otherwise, no, it looks dull. Especially on a premise that's been done and done again.

    This must be the show that called me last year. They said they were in the Atlanta area and had a History Channel show. They never said what the name of the show was. We talked for a long time (by modern telephone call standards) and I sent them photos of the car. They wanted to know how much work it would be to get my car on the road, and if I was willing to sell it. I wasn't willing to sell it, and I never heard back from them. I'll be interested to see what they ended up doing to the DeLorean they got.

    Aha,

    I'm sorry, but didn't he hate DeLoreans? Wasn't he selling them or putting them in storage for 40 years or something?
