  1. You can tell when Tom takes a ride in the VW it’s a genuine ride between different generations. Two people years apart enjoying the same hobby. That’s what cars are all about.

    Being young like boys featured in this episode and driving old cars, getting the respect from the older folks who grew up in the muscle car generation is what keeps me motivated.

  2. Tom, you meet so many different, good, and wonderful people. It truly gives me hope for our country, her future, and it’s ultimate voyage. Thanks for doing this with your wonderful crew! You make me want to do this for Donut Media!

  3. 15 cents worth of gas…that brings back memories of four buddies in a ’65 Sunbeam Alpine and 25 cents between us. Great episode Tom…pleasure to meet you at Ned’s shop last week. You really need to feature him and his cars…it’s why all the car guys in the area hang out there. Where else could you run into Tom Cotter?

  4. Hi Tom. Your concern about the younger generation being too much into digital items, is valid. But it is heartwarming to know there are youngsters still getting their hands dirty, reviving the cars of yesteryear, albeit with their own spin on it. More power to them.
    Thanks for your great shows that revive our fond memories. God bless…

  5. Amazing episode. Probably my favourite yet. Love that Europa! The split bus and land rovers are way too cool as well. These guys have great taste!

  6. Another great episode!!, for awhile I felt like the auto hobby was going to end. Recently I watched a 14 year old film his trip to Sick week in a 65 GTO 521ci, 6spd, 20mpg, 8.60 after watching that young man visiting car people all along the trip. All the sharing and caring, the fun, I see the future of hot rods of all kinds smoking tires for many years

  7. Hi Tom, absolut cool episode, with nice people. Please bring more barn find storys –> keep it going 😉

  8. One of the best video’s ever. a real breath of fresh air. Would love to see more of young people doing old school cars

  9. I’ve been patiently waiting for a new barn find hunter episode and I’ll tell you this.. I was not disappointed for a second.. old v.w’s are up there on the top of my favorites list.. awesome video

  10. Great episode Tom. Awesome to see young guys loving these old vehicles and keeping them alive. Cheers!!

  11. This was so great. Does my heart good to see these young men being so open, friendly & welcoming.
    These kids are why I miss living down south. Southerner’s are just a different class of people 🥰
