Ronnie’s Redneck Road Trip
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
