We will create the Ultimate Interactive Multimedia Experience for Muscle Car Enthusiasts. We will interview muscle car and car restoration experts, and we will be able to distribute it widely to our half million fans and ten thousand email addresses. They will be live nationwide events that you can attend and participate in with our chat, poll, request to present, and other features.
Muscle car enthusiasts badly want to be part of a community. Right now, the clubs are local. A live Talk Show event with chat, polls, and other features is the ultimate way to bring people together nationwide. It employs the full multimedia and interactive capabilities that the Internet offers as part of a real time event experience. The live events will be offered every other week, so everybody should be able to attend.
DENVER, Colorado—February 4th, 2016—Muscle Car Fan, one of the largest muscle car fan based websites in the world, is pleased to announced it’s most innovative project to date. It’s called the “Muscle Car Fan LIVE Talk Show.”

ATTENTION Muscle Car Enthusiasts:
Ready to Get Serious About Owning YOUR OWN MUSCLE CAR?
Now, Get the Insider’s Scoop on Muscle Car Restoration…
and FINALLY Own the Most Awesome Car on the Block!
And I’ll Save You TONS of Time, Money, And Aggravation in the Process!
Dear Muscle Car Enthusiast,
How familiar does this sound to you?
You’re sitting in your office chair at work, or in your recliner in your living room… imagining what it would be like to own a fully-restored, kick a$$ muscle car – one that makes everyone stop and stare when you drive by.
You can almost hear the beastly roar of the engine… feel the wind whip by as you tear down the freeway… see your friends turn green with envy when you pull up to their houses in your shiny automotive monster. You imagine walking out to your garage every day just to admire the awesomeness of the muscle car you’ve restored with your own two hands. And you nod your head in satisfaction.
But then, suddenly… you snap back into reality. For the vast majority of us… the dream of owning an awesome muscle car seems almost unattainable… If you haven’t yet bought your muscle car… trying to figure out which car is right for you – and how much you should realistically pay – is a cumbersome task! And not only that, it can be tough to estimate how much time and money you’re going to dump into restoring your car… that is, if the replacement parts are even available at all!
If you’ve already bought your project car… you’ve probably already become familiar with the headaches of finding parts, getting your hands on accurate restoration tutorials, and all of the other tasks that go into restoring and customizing your beast!
It can be almost maddening – all you want is an awesome car you can be proud of (and that your friends can drool over)! Is that too much to ask?
We’ve Been in Your Shoes… And Know How Frustrating it Can Be!
Ross Mills, our Editor is a long-time muscle car enthusiast and a project car veteran. In fact, he has been restoring and customizing project cars for more than 30 years.
Along the way, he has forgotten more than most people have ever learned about buying and restoring muscle cars. He has been “taken for a ride” a time or two…
He knows what it’s like to have to hunt for information… to rifle through magazines and manuals trying to find instructions for this modification or that repair… only to come up empty-handed. And he knows what it’s like to “ask around” for replacement parts for months before he finally gets his hands on what he needs!
The Internet should have made things easier… but it hasn’t! All that the Internet has done is to overload us with even more sketchy info and inaccurate tutorials. Spend an hour or two watching muscle car restoration videos on YouTube, and you’ll probably end up feeling more confused than ever!
That’s exactly why I created MuscleCarFan.com. I wanted to provide a resource where muscle car enthusiasts like you could find a wealth of useful, interesting information, no matter whether you’re a newbie or a veteran like Ross.
And I’m proud to say that hundreds of thousands of muscle car enthusiasts have taken advantage of my hundreds of articles on a wide range of muscle car topics. It’s been wonderful to provide a wealth of free history and entertainment to muscle car fans from around the world… and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon!
But I realized that something was missing – something very important if you own a muscle car or you plan to buy one to restore.
Muscle Car Owners Like You Need Access to Reliable, In-Depth Training to Help You Create the Car You’ve Always Dreamed Of!
Trusting just anyone on the Internet is a recipe for disaster. You never know if someone who creates a video or writes a tutorial knows what they’re talking about… and if you follow their advice, you could end up:
That’s why I decided to add a special, exclusive members-only resource where people like you who are serious about buying and restoring muscle cars the right way can find the reliable, in-depth information and instruction you need!
If You Want to FINALLY Own the Perfect Muscle Car… Without All of the Mistakes and Frustrations… You Need to back this Kick Start and Join “The VIP Owner's Club!”
The VIP Owner's Club is an insider place where you can get information about the muscle car topics you really care about. You’ll learn everything you need to know to find, buy, and restore your own awesome project car!
Remember the muscle car on the poster you had on your wall as a kid? With your membership to The VIP Owner's Club… now you can have that car!
What Makes “The Talk Show and the VIP Owner's Club” Different from Anything Else You’ve Seen?
Quite frankly, being “interested” in muscle cars doesn’t make someone an expert. That’s what you get with most online resources – articles and videos from guys who “tinker” with project cars… but who don’t really have the expertise to help you save time and money while still getting the job done right!
Ross has more than 3 decades of experience… and believe me, he has busted a lot of knuckles and lost a lot of cash along the way. But he has also become an expert in project cars… and you can use his experience to save yourself a heap of trouble.
But even I know that one guy can’t teach you everything. That’s why you are getting expert interviews each month from some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the business.
Pictures and historical articles on muscle cars are nice (that’s why I’ve put TONS of ‘em on MuscleCarFan.com, but when it comes to buying and restoring your own muscle car… you need experts on your side to help you steer clear of the pitfalls. And as a member of The VIP Owner's Club, that’s exactly what you’re getting!
Here’s Just a Sample of What You’ll Learn as a Member of The VIP Owner's Club…

P.P.S.: If you’re dragging your feet on backing this Kick Start and joining The VIP Owner's Club… you need to know that as more members join, I’ll be adding even more awesome resources… which means more server space and higher costs. So that means the membership costs will go up for new members only in the coming months. But when you join today – you get to keep the same low annual rate for as long as you stay a member! So don’t risk paying more later – start your membership now!
One-of-a-kind Jam Sessions on muscle cars and car restoration!
The Talk Show is the centerpiece of the nationwide community we are building. We can't do it without you!
We have already proven that we are capable of executing the project. We have produced two sample episodes that you are welcome to inspect. We are backed by Muscle Car Fan, which has over half a million fans and a rapidly growing email list. We have hundreds of posts and now wish to expand into producing our own video content. We will make every effort to produce the Show live. However, episodes may be recorded instead of produced live due to technical and logistical challenges. Live versions of the Talk Show will be free and replays will temporarily be free. Archives will likely be available to members only, unless we pick up a lot of sponsors and big ticket donations/lots of small donations.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Part of the money will be used to produce at least 26 episodes of the show. The remainder will be used to create more written content and to maximize the reach of the show. We have extensive experience and analytics in this domain, and a talented and motivated team. Watch a sample episode, and you will see just how enthusiastic, talented, and knowledgeable they are. We may be able to expand the team with the funds from this kick start.
We reach about 300,000 each week on Facebook (many times each), and about 10,000 each week by email (half daily, half weekly). The site receives about 40,000 visitors per month. All of these numbers are expected to increase as we deploy the funds from this kick start. We will also start developing our Youtube channel, and our Twitter account.
