Automotive Fine Artist James Owens of Car Noir joins the Gearheads in The Round Six Experience at the 70th Grand National Roadster Show to talk art, acting, residual checks, edible neckwear, billion-dollar ideas and more, if you can imagine that. It’s a crazy ride that occasionally finds the rails and speeds along at a breakneck pace. Episode forty-six is a monster.
Round Six’s Brian explores the shocking parallel of custom car build stories and the motion picture special feature. Taking a look at a side of George Barris’ career that is often overlooked, Brian finds that the King of Kustomizers had a kindred spirit in Forrest J Ackerman, another Hollywood fixture bent on preserving the history of his passion.
In episode ten, it’s a free-for-all as the guys sit and riff on movie cars, movie ideas, a Hydrazine-based energy drink and a ton of other things that should probably never be mentioned again. However, if you’ve ever watched “Bridges of Madison County” and thought “a car chase would really liven this film up,” then you’re going to love this one.
Each week, a popular TV show opened with the actual NASA footage of the aircraft crash that critically injures Colonel Austin. Every young fan of the show could quote the words that played out during beginning of each show. As a 10 year old kid, I would never have guessed that my paths would later cross with the guy who was actually piloting the aircraft in that famous NASA video. That’s right, I worked with the REAL Six Million Dollar Man, Bruce Peterson.
