"What's My Car Worth?" Television Show to Shoot Four Episodes at Food Lion AutoFair
Looking to sell your classic car? Every wonder what it’s really worth? You could find out when the television show “What’s My Car Worth?” comes to the Food Lion AutoFair, April 7-10 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
In its second season on Discovery HD Theater, “What’s My Car Worth?” is the brainchild of Roger Williams, who has an extensive history in television production including leadership roles at Outdoor Life Network, SPEED Channel and ESPN. Williams will bring a production crew and “What’s My Car Worth?” host, collector-car expert Keith Martin of “Sports Car Market Magazine,” to Charlotte Motor Speedway to shoot four episodes at the Food Lion AutoFair on Friday and Saturday. Three automotive dealers from around the country will be on hand to evaluate around 20 cars selected from the Food Lion AutoFair’s Car Corral, which circles the 1.5-mile superspeedway. The dealers include Mark Hyman from Hyman Limited Classic Cars in St. Louis; Peter Klutt from Legendary Motorcar Company Limited in Halton Hills, Ontario, Canada; and Donnie Gould from Donnie Gould Restorations in Oakland Park, Fla.
The vehicle appraisals will take place inside Victory Circle near the Time Warner Cable Media Center. The dealers will evaluate the overall condition and collectability of the cars and could make an offer of purchase on the spot to each owner.
Food Lion AutoFair attendees can watch the show taping by sitting in the nearby grandstands just outside Victory Circle.
“What’s My Car Worth?” typically deals with cars at auction but at the Food Lion AutoFair, according to Williams, for the first time in the show’s brief history the crew will evaluate vehicles for sale by individual owners.
The four episodes are scheduled to air on Discovery HD Theater July 26, and Aug. 2, 9 and 16.
The “What’s My Car Worth?” taping is just one of the unique attractions and displays at the Food Lion AutoFair, which also will feature a street-legal Radio Flyer wagon; a display of electric vehicles; a “Beauties and Beasts” display featuring cars from several automakers; and a collector car auction conducted by Dealer Auctions Inc.
