Dennis Gage from "My Classic Car" and his frequent guest Jay Leno.


Most of you probably know who Dennis Gage is, but for those who don’t, he is the host of the TV show on the Speed Channel called “My Classic Car”. He travels the country visiting car shows and filming cool cars and hot rods. He is probably best known for his enthusiasm over rare and unique cars as well as his trademark handlebar mustache. Here is an excerpt and a link to the entire article about his experiences in Oroville.

There’s gold in them thar hills!
By Dennis Gage

Last weekend we shot the first event for the 2012 TV season in Oroville, CA. It was appropriately named the Gold Rush Car Show since Oroville was a center of gold prospecting activities in northern California during the rush in the mid 1800’s. The town only has a population of about 14,000 but the show drew an impressive 900+ cars.

Tim is the President of Red Line Oil and the particular red he used is a DuPont color called Redline Red. Go figure. The paint theme was carried thru in the interior with the gauge faces being the same faint yellow used on the exterior. Read More

  1. Great cars,I have seen Mr Gage at cruisin the coast and one other event.He had no time for me as many others that wanted to speak to him. He wasn’t busy just arrogant, not a typical attitude of a rodder.My classic is a great show it can do better.
