AMPLIFIER: WORLD OF COLLECTOR CARS
World of Collector Cars began shooting in 1989. The next 2 years were spent getting the show ready to be broadcast on national television. This was the first time in history that a weekly TV show was dedicated to classic & collector cars. World of Collector Cars started it all.
In the summer of 1991 the first show aired on over 60 PBS stations across the United States.
As more markets discovered the show, the count quickly rose to over 200 stations each week. World of Collector Cars was later syndicated in 11 countries. A couple of years after first being broadcast, copy-cat shows started popping up on cable channels.
While the WoCC was not your typical slick Hollywood production, it still had great appeal among hard-core car collectors. Instead of eye-grabbing graphics and quick segments, WoCC focused on indepth stories, looking close-up at the cars, the builders, restorers and the history involved. WoCC strived to get the "whole" story...and fans appreciated the effort.
In 2000, due to personal reasons, WoCC ceased production. Over 270 shows had been produced in less than 10 years. Many of the most historically important cars and car-related people had been documented for future reference.
Now, for the first time in over 10 years, some of the original WoCC shows are being made available for viewing again. We hope you enjoy them.
