Hurricane Sandy was a transformative event for much of New Jersey, especially the famous Jersey Shore. Flooding ruined homes, businesses, and legions of cars. Saying it was devastating to the local economy is an understatement.
A few of you mentioned that you wish there was more car content in the first season of American Detours. Well, we heard you and that's what we're doing for season 2... which will take place in Lake Tahoe/Reno, Iowa, and the hill country of Texas north of Austin.
It's the final episode of season one. This time Jael and I are in a '70 Roadrunner traveling to a few more spots in W. Virginia. This includes stopping by the land of a guy who OWNS a cave, and then hitting a great local food spot before joining a few folks for a classic car get together.
Episode 5 of American Detours brings myself and host Jael De Pardo to West Virginia. The featured car is a 1965 MGB and we hit up the New River Gorge Bridge before heading off to The Greenbrier Hotel.
In the first episode, myself and my co-host took in some sights alongside Louisiana's Creole Nature Trail in a 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie. Now we're back on the same trail but this time our ride is a 1971 Ford Mustang.
Apparently it's Pimp-Your-Car-Show Day, because I've got one I want to share with you. As excited as I am for Mr. Harper's new show Fast Lane, I'm even more excited for my own web-series called American Detours. The basic concept is taking classic cars on classic roads in various parts of the country.
