Jay Leno!

We are going to try and catch Jay - which is practically impossible because he is forever on the road doing his stand up comedy or working in his garage or creating a vast amount of information for Jay Leno's Garage or producing on specials for CNBC.

Jay's "The Ultimate Car Week" recently was on the CNBC Prime network. This show centered around Pebble Beach car show. However, Jay will show you behind the scenes of the show. Interviews with car designers and owners to the grounds keeper in charge of fixing the area after the show is over.

John Wells - Iron Invasion Traditional Car Show

Iron Invasion hopes to continue in the footsteps of those who have paved the path of tradition.  Join us in a celebration of good people, good music, & maybe a little gear grinding in Woodstock Illinois.

This year’s show will continue with Traditional Hot Rods, Kustoms and Cycles. There will be a Harley Davidson Ironhead motorcycle Give Away, a Western Swing & Rockabilly vibrations will get your feet a moving. There will be a Tin Butchers Swap Meet with vintage parts and automobillia. Vendors from California, Texas, & New York - and points in between – No veggimatics or sunglass huts here! Today's hottest contemporary lowbrow & automotive artists.

 NO CHARGE to show your ride.

Discovery's "Highway to Sell" Co-host Mr. Slick.

Slick is a partner and co-host - along with Dennis Pittsenbarger - of the newest Discovery Channel's "Highway to Sell".

Slick from Discovery's Highway to Sell

The show is based on helping guys with their cars that are just sitting around and rotting away.

So Slick and Dennis make a very special offer about the car. They will get the car back on the road and put it up for sale at a local auction. Here's the cool catch. The owner gets a percentage of the selling price - with a minimum cash value guarantee if the car doesn’t sell for the amount predicted. In addition, the owner can bid on his car with another guarantee that they can deduct that percentage from the final bid price.

Dennis Pittsenbarger along with Slick

Slick has the mechanical skills, the design sense and the crew to get the car back to “coolsville”. So each episode shows the process from the beginning deal with a client to the final auction block drama.

Dennis Pittsenbarger
"Highway To Sell"

Highway to Sell is Discovery Channel's newest TV show. Along with cohort Slick - hear interview with Slick - WHRR's Past Show list - they approach car owners with a win / win proposition. Well, Dennis and Slick both have to sweat out the details and hopefully break even on their wallets.

Dennis is a racer, automotive industry expert and classic car restorer since he was 12 years old. He worked in local Portland area body shops and graduated in 1989 with his ASE certification. Few other drivers can claim to have driven at Wisconsin’s Road America, Oregon’s Portland International, and California’s Laguna Seca, New York’s Watkins Glen and in the Great American Stockcar Series. And Dennis loves to share stories about being part of the first funny car team to hit 300 mph at the NHRA Winternationals.

Dennis was the voice of the nationally syndicated HOT ROD MAGAZINE LIVE radio program and was recently named the Host of SEMA Central for the car show, and will be a guest presenter at the SEMA banquet.

4,000 old cars in East Troy to be crushed by winter 2014

When the snow begins to fly this winter in East Troy, Wis., there will be 4,000 less old cars left to give their last bit of parts. The 27-acre Troy Auto Parts in East Troy is closing, and the land it occupies must be completely cleared of its 4,000-plus-car inventory, which dates as far back as the 1950s. I would say we have about 30 or more cars back to the 1950s, and a whole bunch of 1960s and 1970s cars; 99 percent of them are American,” said Ryan Sie, a yard employee and the car guy who is organizing this final appeal to car collectors to fetch parts off the cars before they go to the graveyard in the sky. “I have been putting cars off to the side that are worth saving,” Sie said. “When the time comes that they are getting in the way, then they will be crushed. This whole lot has to be cleared.” Read full article
