Dennis Gage, My Classic Car

My Classic Car is a television show about classic automobiles, hosted and produced by Dennis Gage.

Dennis is known for his seemingly boundless enthusiasm, his trademark handlebar moustache and the catchphrase with which he ends every episode, "Honor the timeless classics."

My Classic Car is the template for current automotive centered TV shows. The show has been on the air almost twenty years. About as long as the TV western Gunsmoke. That's a lot of episodes to produce.

Dennis travels the world - bringing his camera - visiting car shows. Each episode features several vehicles selected at each show. And what is refreshing is that Dennis has the owners talk about their vehicle rather than himself.

Included in each show is an educational automotive segment with topics about tires, floor mats, waxes and polishes, wiring, audio and anything else that Dennis feels is important for us viewers.
