Barrett Jackson on all day. Grand Am race being shown tomorrow. Odd that a channel named Speed is showing cars parked.

I watched it years ago.
However, I got bored beyond the pale watching old guys bidding up the price (to ridiculous levels) of the cars of their youth.
Glory Days and all....rolleyes.gif

Its interesting to see what some of the old classics are worth. I was amazed to see some old Camaros selling in the 50k range.

Not so fast. Most guides now show 4:30 being filled by a rerun of The Grid. My guess is the first F1 36 was to be Vettel in Malaysia, and RB pulled it. I don't think it has aired at all.

Also, right now NBCSN has a really cool ice-skating race called Red Bull Crashed Ice. Tuned in at 2:30 just in case F1 36 was airing then (some guides had it at 2:30pm today earlier in the week). Much better than parked cars.

My "Scheduled recordings" says F1 36 but the "Guide" says The Grid. I guess we'll just have to tune in to see.

What makes you think RB may have pulled it?

The skating is pretty cool,I've watched it a few times.Much better than parked,though I can't believe how much people pay for some of them.I saw a '70 1/2 Camaro SS that wasn't stock,go for 37,000.Nice car but not that nice.

I'm still pondering the F1 36 thing. I had it set for first airing and never got it. But, I show several airings yet to come. But, none were set to record (they're all Vettel.) As of now my guess is that my DVR thinks it recorded it so isn't again. Or, it's a foreign show and first airing was before we see it (DirecTV has a problem with this and doesn't recognize it as a new show.) So I've changed it to record both old and new, and manually set one of the many future ones. We'll see, maybe.

So far, all those "other airings" ended up being different shows entirely.

Did anyone ever thing we'd actually get an all-access behind-the-scenes Formula 1 show?

It works for IndyCar, but that's IndyCar. F1, I always had my doubts.

OK. I figured whatever reason you had it wasnt a good one. It also may be because RB isnt interesting enough for anyone to care about. biggrin.gif

As someone who remembers those old cars when they were new, I find it all rather amazing.

Those cars were horrible to drive....they wouldn't stop or steer or have anything remotely resembling traction.
They were regularly breaking down and stranding you somewhere (broken fan belts, radiator hoses, water pumps, thermostats, and on and on).
They needed near constant maintenance of the nasty oily, broken knuckle kind (engine and transmission re-builds, blown rear-ends, fried clutches, broken flywheels, leaks from one end of a car to the other, etc.).

lol I remember many days spent in the driveway helping my Dad work on our old cars. Seemed like every weekend there was something that needed done to them. But we could never afford anything new either. smile.gif

Not to mention the interiors of those cars.

Fill your pockets with bell peppers and mushrooms and you'd be a nice shish kabob after a fender bender. wink.gif

I had an old 71 Chrysler Newport (tank) back in 1986 that I bounced off of many a guardrail speeding down backroads. I dont think you could damage that car. It would dent the guardrail worse than the car. It had to weigh 6000lbs. Only car I ever had that would seat 4 comfortably in the back. eek.gif Everyone used to call it "The Limo". smile.gif

4200 lbs. A new Charger v8 is 4400. The amount of mandated safety and emission equipment today may put your Newport at around 6k.

A new Charger V8 isnt even a close comparison. You should google the 71 Newport. All iron and steel. Probably about 3 ft longer and 2 ft wider than a new Charger. The trunk probably had about as much space as the inside of most modern cars. It took up a parking space and a half. And a one of the biggest motors Chrysler has ever built. Cant remember for sure but it was around 450 cu in.

That's a nice car. A '12 Vette is around 3300 too, loaded for bear.

A lot of times you read these astounding hp numbers for some of these cars, then drive them and say "huh?".
That's because they are ground bound Manatees.

New style Camaro is around 3900.

That was kind of the point. Massive impenetrable steel lawn dart weighs less than new plastic fantastic.

You could get a 360, 383, 400, and 440 depending on the year.
