Detroit Muscle TV Show

So, I'm sitting here watching the DVR'ed episode of the new/rebranded Detroit Muscle TV show, the one where they building a Butler 455 to put into a Trans Am tribute car.

There's a segment they do on 'The Judge' and go out to check out a supposed 69 Judge in a wrecking yard. The 'expert' on the show is describing the history of The Judge, telling how to ID a real one, etc. They show some photos of various cars...

Then I see... THE BEAST!!!!

For a couple seconds, they show a photo of my car, THIS photo.

How cool is that????

How cool is that? When your car is picked out to represent the marque, it's about as cool as it gets. Great stuff!

Wonder where they got the picture from? Talking to a guy with a 66 GTO at a show once and he showed me an ad in a magazine that had his car in it. He said he had no idea where they got the photo but it was his car, you could read the licence plate.

The second one could have come from my web site, but the first one? No telling. I've posted those photos quite a few different places in forums, FB, etc. Could've been from anywhere.

No matter - I just feel honored they used them.
