  1. Tune is this Saturday for the new series "Curators Vault." It begins airing this week on Velocity @ 9:30a EST. Produced by the same people who created Magnificent Motorcars, this series features the worlds greatest automotive museums. Set your DVR and let us know what you think! About half the series is shot in Europe and the other half in the US. Featuring not only the most incredible museums, but some amazing automotive stories as well! http://vimeo.com/107670156
  2. Hahaha... It's an on-line television service like Netflix. Hulu has the best listings for television shows (going way back) and Netflix is best at movies. The series can also be found on Amazon Prime, Roku, and Apple TV by the end of the year if you don't have traditional television. Link to Hulu: http://www.hulu.com
  3. Hi Bill, Thanks for your kind remarks. If you don't have cable or satellite, you can find the first season of Magnificent Motorcars on Hulu and it's there to watch anytime. It will also be available on DVD starting in January.
  4. Jeff, Yes, we featured the Raceabout (such a cool car) in our episode on the Louwman Museum as part of our new upcoming series "Curators Vault." This series will be airing on Velocity starting on November 22nd. It will be available on Hulu probably by the end of the year. We have not covered anything in Alaska yet, it's expensive to go up there for just one episode. We try to hit several locations on each "regional" trip for filming. Europe is easy in that sense. But I'd love an excuse to hit Alaska, so I'll certainly look into it.
  5. Hi Kimo, Please go watch the first season if you'd like over on our website www.reality-rides.com I think you will enjoy the build. Our new season starts on January 3rd on Velocity. It's all real, no fake deadlines, no scripted drama, no BS. Think "This Old House" for cars.
  6. Lump, I would be interested in hearing more about your project. I am the producer of "Reality Rides" a series that is exactly as you described, a real car build show. If you have not seen it you should. We have had 2 full seasons air on Velocity (4th Qtr 2013, 1st Qtr 2014) and we garnered the highest ratings on Velocity in the past 13 months outside of prime time. We spend an entire season building a car, every nut and bolt comes off and then the viewers get to see it restored. In season 1 we built a 1955 Buick Special. Season 2 was a 1940 Dodge Command Car and a 1942 Lincoln Zephyr. T
  7. Hi John, Thanks for your enthusiastic feedback! The Ferrari episode is one of my favorites, it features John Collins of Talacrest out of England. He is such an interesting character and is truly Ferrari Mad. But while we were taping at his place outside of London, we ran across a 1958 Aston Martin DBR1 in his collection at the time. It was the very car that Caroll Shelby won LeMans with in 1959. Not only was it a breathtaking car, but I had the privilege of riding in it that day! A few months later he sold it for $28 million. Stay tuned for lots of great stories, I hope you enjoy them a
  8. Hi Jeff, We ran into Jay Leno at the annual CCCA meet in California, in the episode he mostly talks about the history of the unique Doble. We have produced 26 episodes, about half in Europe and the other half across the states. 7 episodes are running currently on Velocity, the bulk of the series will be broadcast in 2015. (Before then the first 13 episodes will be available on Hulu, Amazon Prime, Roku) Starting on November 22, we launch our second classic car series called "Curators Vault" it features the worlds greatest automobile museums. Both series are very high end, and feature some

  10. From the Producer of Reality Rides is a new series, that is perfectly created for viewers like the AACA: In the world of reality television, it seems that even the most tiresome topic is being produced. Who would have ever imagined that viewers would watch a show about pawn shops, duck hunters, junk yards, or storage facilities. But people seem to be fascinated with the everyday, even though most of this “reality” is obviously not real at all. But imagine for a moment, a story about magnificent machines built in a time when there were no set preconceptions of what the automobile should look li
  11. From the producer of Reality Rides, we proudly present a new automotive series featuring the art, design, and history of some of the worlds greatest automobiles. Shot both in Europe and the US, this series is made for viewers like you! Find us on Velocity @9:30a EST or on Hulu. <iframe src="//player.vimeo.com/video/65987394?title=0&byline=0" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" allowfullscreen="" width="500" frameborder="0" height="281"></iframe> Magnificent Motorcars Trailer from Greene HD Productions on Vimeo.
  12. Thanks for all of your comments and ongoing support. I do not have any plans on changing our formula or plot lines. We will keep it real. The only deadlines we face are based on production budgets and broadcast deadlines. We pretty much have to build a car in 6-7 months (real time), so we will select builds that are doable in that space of time. If need be, we add more staff to achieve those goals, but you as the viewer will always see what's going on. Carl is as real as it gets and if you have not met him, feel free to stop by his shop in Red Oak, Texas. For those of you who don't get
  13. I appreciate the invite to the spring get together and it sounds like fun. I'll check my schedule and try to make it out there. Don't get me wrong, I much prefer accurate and original cars. I'm not a real fan of hot rods and it makes my skin crawl to see an old car that could be restored chopped up into some crazy mess of a concoction. With our car we walked a fine line between a restoration and what I considered more practical for today's use. I also wanted A/C that worked like new technology and a stereo that played off my iphone. I LOVE driving my old Buick around town and turning hea
  14. Ok, as the producer of the series and the owner of the car, I have to respond. (Just now catching up on reading this forum) I have spent the past year working on a new series that features stories of some of the rarest and most important cars in the world. Many of these are multi-million dollar cars from the 20's and 30's. Spent time with top museum curators in Europe and the US and been to many of the most prestigious concours events that exist. It's been fun and exciting. But the term "restoration" is used loosely in many of these contexts. Our car was restored with a few minor modifi
  15. I am the owner of the 1955 Buick built for Reality Rides, I am also the producer of the series. It's been a wonderful build and such a fun car. I take it out about once a week and we use it for show promotion all the time, we were at Autorama this past week-end with it. The car always draws huge attention wherever it goes. The parts car, a 1955 4-door Century, sits on Carl's back lot. It has given up a ton of parts to this and another build. If you enjoy the series, keep watching. We found out today from Discovery that we are the highest rated show on Velocity outside of prime time and
