I am going with our forum is somewhat anonymous...  I am just glad I did not get involved. 

 

I am also guessing the transport people had no idea what they were getting into.  Not to offer excuses, but there is no possible way they would know how to start and drive these unique historic cars.

To get an idea of the disclosures, scroll down to sections 35 & 36 of the application. The ones you sign after they accept you are even more extensive. You can't say anything about anything even if it doesn't concern you.

 You know I was kidding about the X-15.

 

That is quite an agreement. You know, if I was given an agreement and it contained a paragraph written in all capital letters I would see a red flag saying "insanity" just like I did a couple minutes ago. Somehow my next thought was, did Ingmar Bergman sign an agreement like that when he directed The Seventh Seal  .

 

Have you noticed how quiet things have been since the AACA first announced it was cuddling up to THOSE type of people? "Kids your Mother and Father wouldn't let you play with." Today it is intuitive.

I didn’t know. ? I should have know though!

 

I haven’t been on enough lately to notice much. Preoccupied with the new job, the move, dad’s stuff. Don’t have time for much else.

We have another member who will be on the show with his Keller!  I am very happy to see AACA members get this opportunity and hope that the show is a good one.  If they concentrate on the stories, the cars and the people involved and not on the value of the cars it will be a show I will watch.

I saw him tonight on episode 2 with his AACA shirt on! Beautiful car!

So what is the name of the show?

When this topic began, the show was untitled.

 

Evidently, the reported damage to cars didn't

keep the show from proceding and succeeding in some manner.

It’s called Sticker Shock.

Thanks, Victoria.

 

I'm glad you like the show;  I haven't seen it.

The Discovery Channel was begun as an educational

channel focusing on science, technology, and history;

but now its programming is pseudo-scientific and has an 

abundance of so-called reality shows.

 

Like a number of channels that once were educational,

this channel has devolved.  Let's  hope they can get back

some truly good programming.

I agree. While I think this show has some merit over others, I agree with your general assessment of the channel. They could still do a better car show IMHO. 

 

I wish the media would return return to a better class of programming. Especially the so called “news”. I miss reporters who reported news and not gossip for the sake of ratings and attention.

I just watched an episode and a half online.  Not bad, as the appraisers seem to actually know the cars pretty well and give you some good tips about assessing condition (although they appraised cars I don't know well, so maybe they were off). 

 

The most annoying part is that if you watch it on the Discovery Channel's website, logging in through your cable provider, they have a somewhat crazy number of commercials.  Or at least there were a lot for me: something like 10 commercials per commercial break, with 4 or 5 commercial breaks.  At that rate you're spending 1/3 of the time watching commercials, which is just way too much.  [UPDATE: For reasons I don't follow, it seems that on some of the episodes you can click through the commercials but that on others you can't.  Obviously no problem if you can jump over them, but it's a lot to watch if you can't.]
