'MotorWeek' to visit Wheels Through Time Aug. 26
On Tuesday, Aug. 26, Wheels Through Time will be hosting the cast and crew of MotorWeek — television's original automotive series — during a shoot for one of its upcoming episodes on Velocity TV. The show heads to Maggie Valley to give viewers a glimpse inside the museum and talk about history with curator and founder Dale Walksler.
MotorWeek is America's longest running automotive television series, premiering Oct. 15, 1981. Hosted by Emmy Award winner and show creator John Davis, it’s one of the most reliable sources of automotive news on television on the Internet. Each year, MotorWeek tests over 150 cars and trucks and offers consumer-oriented reviews on performance, technology, practicality and dollar value. Presented in magazine-type format, episodes include vehicle reviews, comparisons, news and also special features —which is why the cast and crew are headed to Wheels Through Time.
As the show's host, Davis is among the most trusted names in automotive journalism, and has been featured on CNN, “Weekend Today” and “LIVE with Regis and Kelly.” Over the past three decades, Davis has kept his foot on the accelerator, developing MotorWeek into the premier source for unbiased information about what's new in the automotive world. The show is now in its 30th season and is seen nationwide on PBS and Velocity.
While the show primarily focuses on what's new in the automotive world, they couldn't pass on an opportunity to share one of the world's premier collections of rare and historic American motorcycles and automobiles. Wheels Through Time houses over 350 unique machines inside of its 38,000 square foot facility, including numerous experimental, racing, and one-of-a-kind examples. Although the machines they'll be viewing aren't new, they represent their era's cutting edge of technology and performance on both road and track.
