Not really into reality shows, but this seemed interesting.

 

 

 

 

Matt Sager of Mill Bay is a hunter, but not of the big-game variety. His specialty is cars and trucks — rusty, deteriorated ones that are abandoned and in need of rescue.

 

Sager finds these long-forgotten gems throughout remote areas of Western Canada, and saves them from abandoned barns, deep ravines and thick forests. It’s not simply the pursuit of these classic cars and trucks that makes what he calls his “extreme hobby” so interesting; equally impressive is the way in which they are located and extracted, with help from his team. And that exercise is what has Sager and Co. at the centre of Lost Car Rescue, a six-part series that premières tonight at 9 p.m. on History.

 

The easygoing team leader is joined on the series by a colourful cast: His brother, Steve Sager, who is the team’s mechanic; longtime friend Jessica James, who pilots the plane from which Matt locates the vehicles; Dave Mischuk, an autobody specialist who assesses the damage and cost of repair; and Lee Brandt, the crane operator whose mechanical arm plucks the vehicles from the jaws of Mother Nature.

Looks like the pilot is a laid-off Harbour Air pilot.

Deuce Days is always a great event. I especially love that it is built around cars, something Victoria officialdom clearly hates, but the public loves.

Letter in the TC today.  I guess we should be thankful that idiotic slobbering is still permitted in our society:

 

Dinosaur car culture on full display

 

Deuce Days, a redneck celebration of toxic masculinity and dinosaur car culture, is the last thing Victoria needs.

Inviting this invasion of older white heterosexual males to parade their ­fetishized internal-combustion vehicles only perpetuates their notion of entitled privilege and the deeply entrenched interests of car culture, both of which Victorians have fought long and hard to put behind us.

Deuce Days belongs in a backwater hick town where these good ol’ boys hide from progress hoping for a return to the “good old days” when men were ­measured by the size of their car.

That letter is meant to be satirical - right?

^If so, Glen Paul’s subtle satire rather escapes me.  Maybe he’s ramping up to run for mayor.

I often think we are seeing the devolution of the human race and it's happening at a rapid pace.
