TV Auto "Restoration" Channels Rant
Another thread on the forum mentioned the cost of restoration and some of the TV shows. That brings up one of my pet peeves. No, it's not the radical customizing Vs. Restoration. I think most of us have an interest in cars that extends past our beloved Hudsons. So I bet a bunch of us watch these channels. It's the Damn NOISE! All these shows have a sound track that uses guitars and percussions amplified into distortion. no, not in the background but OVER the dialog, The content of the shows themselves are great. Why do they put that distracting crap over the dialog? I turn the volume down to a livable level and then can't hear the information. Velocity channel is the one I watch most, but I am sure there are others. My only explanation is that they younger folks that produce those shows have already damaged their hearing listing to that junk in their youth! LOL.
I get a kick out of those shops that "build" a car from a catalog. everything from chassis to engine and body, out of a catalog and donated for the exposure. I would like to challenge them to do a Stepdown... from a catalog. With a sound track that is decipherable. he. he.
