Ron­nie’s Red­neck Road Trip

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Fri­day 28 April @ 8pm, Dave

In case you’ve missed the first four episodes, this new se­ries mostly in­volves larger-than-life Ron Shirley hunt­ing out clas­sic cars to ship back to his Amer­i­can clients. He’s famous be­cause of an Amer­i­can TV show called Lizard Lick Tow­ing, where Ron, who is a former semi-pro­fes­sional Amer­i­can football player and or­dained min­is­ter, owns a tow­ing com­pany. Much silli­ness and red­neck­ery en­sues, and it’s the same with this pro­gramme.

Not that it isn’t hugely en­ter­tain­ing. The se­ries fea­tures car sales, and has guest ap­pear­ances from auc­tion house Clas­sics Cen­tral’s Justin Lazic.

Clas­sics in­cluded so far range from pre-war Bent­leys right up to Fraz­erTick­ford Met­ros, with a smat­ter­ing of R107-se­ries Mercedes-Benz SLs in be­tween. In episode five Ron gets a taste of British high so­ci­ety when he at­tends a hill­climb event, and is chal­lenged to a gun-shoot­ing match.

And if you like it, episode six is on straight af­ter at 8.30pm! MS
