TMCP #462: Ask Rick – 60’s and 70’s Personal Luxury Cars, eBay Values, and the Rise and Fall of ASC – American Sunroof Corp
It’s the first show of April, and once again time for our monthly Ask Rick segment with Rick Schmidt! This time I wanted to know more about the unusual and rare vehicles in his collection. On our family trip to Florida we had a chance to stop in at NPD and were shown around the incredible collection that Rick and his father have amassed over the years. The “personal luxury car” segment of giant Buicks, Olds, Lincolns, and Fords is second to none….but the 1987 Firebird that really caught my eye was produced by a huge company in the 1980’s that is nothing but a memory today!
Ding ding ding! Thanks to your realization of that this show runs on your purchase of a a clean, close, and affordable shave our favorite razor company of all time is back! That’s right – a podcast about flying orange cars and bathroom jokes can actually thrive just by buying a really great razor set. America!!

As a great man once said, if you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything…and we have just accomplished our review of Back To the Future, the most perfect, amazing, awesome, cool, and funny time travel movie featuring a DeLorean ever! Did you know that the DeLorean and KITT share something in common? Did you know that Ford wanted the Mustang to be the star instead? Did you know that nearly the entire movie was shot with a different actor playing the role of Marty McFly? If not…you guys just aren’t ready for this stuff yet. But your kids are going to love it. This one gets a perfect score: 10 out of 10 Pine trees.

This weeks interview is with Gene Kopczyk, DeLorean aficionado and owner of car 2334. Gene admits to a childhood addiction to cars and fell in love at a young age when he watched Back to the Future and saw the DeLorean back out of the trailer. The thoughts of that scene still sends chills down his spine. He also watched “Better Off Dead and started looking for the 67 Camaro that was driven by John Cusack in the movie. The search for the car led Gene to contact me as a potential lead to finding the current owner.
