I am on the UK Corvette club - we were 'approached' recently for a 'new' TV programme being filmed for a car that would go fast in reverse. Seemingly headed up by one of the guys from Fifth Gear (Jonny?) they had been told that a Corvette was one of the fastest cars in reverse gear! - and they wanted someone to provide a car to do this. Couldn't make it up if you tried!
Stay well away from any of these shows - they do have large budgets for themselves but little of it will be spent on you and your car - they take the **** and work on the basis that you will do anything to see your car on the TV. One of my buddies had his car 'restored' by one of these shows - other than a nice paint job they really f*cked the car-up. Over a year later and he is still trying to sort all the things wrong with it now that were perfect before they got their hands on it.
