Host of My Classic Car television series Dennis Gage attends the 2011 Hagley Car Show to film the car show and interview car owners for a program that airs in 2012. The Hagley Car Show features automobiles with rumble seats, in addition to the more than 500 cars, trucks, and motorcycles that illustrate American automotive history.
Gage began hosting the My Classic Car television program in 1996 when it aired on TNN. The show, now in its 16th year, airs on the SPEED channel, which has a viewership of 80 million households. Gage is also the executive producer of the motorcycle television programs, Corbin’s Ride On and Trippin” on Two Wheels, and a reality series, Texas Hardtails.
Hagley Car Show Chairman John McCoy says, “We are very excited to have Dennis here providing international exposure to our world-class show.”
In addition to perusing the antique cars on display, visitors can try pedal-powered go-kart racing and a NASCAR simulator. Attendees can watch vehicle parades, enjoy motoring music and festival food, and delight in walking around a room full of fabulous operating vintage jukeboxes.
