I watched both, it just looks like they are lining them up for auction. I wish they would have spent more time on the cars then the sales pitch, but it was still interesting.

If someone missed the scheduled showing times on FYI and History, you can watch them on Youtube.

Who was the dude in the black hoodie??? ::)  He seemed pretty knowledgeable about the Conelec fuel injection though. :)

He certainly has his moments  8)

My friend, Bruce says my head is getting bigger. I contend its not just my head that is getting bigger, but that certainly does explain why my hair looks thinner.

  Since these were on "the History Channel", no doubt they will be re-broadcasted again.  I missed most of the Green Hornet one, but saw all of the Lil' Red one.  Very informative.
   It's no secret that I have been building a Tribute to Lil'Red.  Well along the way.  I started the conversion about 2014, well before Lil'Red was found.  The Mustang I used is a well optioned GTA, so, the Deluxe interior, vinyl roof, automatic trans is already there.  And it was built at San Jose about 2 weeks before Lil'Red was.
  And, it answered some questions like: what is the color?  I saw the regular black Deluxe upholstery.  There are some other questions but, since mine is a Tribute, it comes down to "so what?"  Wouldn't the deck lid be a custom two off? (for the hard top, and one for the C'vert?)  Well, I built them as metal underlined figuring they were early cars.  Same way with the hood.  I made mine metal underlined,  Hours of labor there.   But, again, so what, that is the way I wanted it.
  And it seems that there willl be some correcting to Lil'Reds history.  They showed that the firewall knock-out was still there, so it never would have had any four speed in it.
  At least they showed Mr Jackson burning plenty of rubber.  So will I.

Some of the shorts on the Barrett-Jackson website have a little more detail on both cars. If you watch everything in totality you will have a better understanding of why the program is the way it is....

I thoroughly enjoyed both programs.  I know all of those characters and all are genuine car guys.  I had lunch with Jason and Craig a couple of times in Burbank when they were out doing research on the cars.  All Craig talked about was cars, cars, cars.  A genuine car guy.  I am proud to have supplied a couple of parts for both cars.  I know I made a few small things for the fuel injection, but forget what they were.  And I remember meeting Jason in LA when the car was first discovered when only a couple of people knew.  Amazing discovery.

Congratulation to the entire team that brought these cars back.

  I'm one of those folks who occasionally reads the credits.  They did list SAAC, and Bryan Styles.
