Classic Car Garage is arguably the original automotive restoration TV show. The first episode was broadcast in 1998 on Los Angeles / Orange County TV station KDOC TV Saturday mornings at 10AM and was a hit with LA car nuts. It was produced and hosted by Jeff Shade, who still performs those duties today. The first series project car was a 1968 California Special Mustang. The next series followed the restoration of a 1956 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery and was broadcast nationally on "The Outdoor Network" the following year.. The shop for those shows was in Anaheim California.
The new incarnation of our show is now seen on local TV stations around the country with a non-commercial version for PBS in the works. The show is currently produced out of Seattle, with post-production done by Daniel Brown Productions in Morro Bay California. In keeping with the times, episodes are now available online as "webisodes" so you can watch on your schedule.
Our mission is to educate and entertain you without the scripted, fake drama so common with today's so-called "reality" TV. No temper tantrums, abusive shop employees and employers, unrealistic deadlines, and bad acting - just REAL people showing you how to do it yourself. We know that's what our viewers want - they've let us know.
