"Lost In TransMISSION"
Premieres Thursday, May 7 at 10PM ET/PT on HISTORY®
Automotive aficionado and TOP GEAR co-host, Rutledge Wood, and fellow car fanatic, George Flanigen, are hitting the road with one mission: rescue and restore America’s most under-appreciated classic cars. Premiering on HISTORY® Thursday, May 7 at 10 PM ET/PT, ’Lost in TransMISSION” will follow these two car connoisseurs as they comb the barns and backyards of America to find rare rides from the past and get them back on the road to live another day.
From resurrecting a 1981 DeLorean that was submerged in Hurricane Sandy to an insect infested 1964 Ford F100 that has been at the mercy of the elements for years, restoring these classics isn't about making a profit for Rutledge and George, it's about uncovering the most incredible vehicles ever made and seeing them run like new. Rutledge is an expert at finding rare cars and George is a shrewd operator with an eye on the budget, providing a much-needed counterbalance to Rutledge’s passion. While this journey will take them off the beaten path, exploring hidden back roads and meeting eccentric characters, they will discover the heart of American car culture in “Lost in TransMISSION.”
