    Actually a very interesting hour, covering early customs and hot rods, lowriders, and even tuners. A few blunders in the voice over, but a rare opportunity to see our own JimA (You always seemed, uh, taller in print:D ) and overall an informative show. Some really nice early video of lakes, drags, and shows, and started with Gene Winfield chopping a Merc. I'll give it two thumbs up as a history lesson.

    Their website says it will be on again this Saturday at 1pm for those who miss it at 3am this morning.


    01:00 PM Modern Marvels: Custom Cars.
    For most of us, cars are an ordinary fixture of daily life. But then there are custom cars--literal labors of love. Supercharged hot rods, sublimely sculpted classics, flashy tricked-out lowriders, neon-bright "import tuners"--an eye-popping blend of fine art and mechanical know-how. In this episode, we trace the history, technology, and cultural connections between successive generations who have turned the common car into an American art form. We'll ride with hot rodders and lowriders and visit the speed shops and paint shops where ordinary cars become art.
