Default Ls1TECH on TV

Hey guys, I had a question about somthing I saw on tv this morning. It was on horsepower T.V. . Im not really a fan of the show, since I have had the pleasure of meeting the cast and crew due to the fact that I live twenty minutes away from where they film here in Nashville. Those guys dont know thier *** from a hole in the ground. But to my question, They were filming at the year one gathering in Atlanta. They cut to a shot and Joe talked about the new class that was runnig from ls1.com. But the guy they interviewed was wearing a ls1tech shirt and hat. Also since the ls1s they filmed were running great times I doubt it was the losers over at ls1.com. So I was wanting to know if anyone new the guy they interviewed or caught the mix up. I was thinking about going to the studios and trying to talk to someone and see about getting them to say somthing on the show to give ls1tech the promo it deserved if infact it was the ls1tech guys who were running. I dont think the people at ls1.com would have been wearing tech hats and shirts.

It was Tony Whatley (Nine Ball). The "ls1.com" reference was a screw-up by the television show. They were mentioning the former series sponsored by LS1tech, and were speaking with Tony at the Year One Experience in Braselton, GA where one of the events was held.

That episode is a few years old. So the painful screw-up gets mentioned on here from time to time as that show is rerun.

Ok, thanks for the info. I had never seen it or heard it mentioned. I guesss since its a few years old they don't plan on fixing the scew-up. Oh well, atleast you could see Tony's shirt and hat, hopefully the veiwers can figure it out.

Theyre the Bob Vila's of the car world lol

Anyone remember Vila building a house, then getting in alot of trouble because he did not have a contractors license, then the house was deemed unfit to live in or something.. I will have to look it up, it's been years ago

Those guys are clowns. Actually the only guy I used to like was Stacey from trucks but now he's gone and they found a couple of tools to replace him too. The whole sunday morning block just plain sucks if you ask me.

What about Lou?! Nobody likes Lou?!

Oh and you can't forget Jesse from 4x4, a girl that looks good, off roads & welds? Well, aside from looking good, maybe she just does the other 2 for television, but imagine the product discounts she could get ya!

Stacey owns his own shop in TN. He didn't want to make the move to CA to film from the new location. Plus he said he didn't like the direction the show was going in (installing gay boltons for sponsor plugs). Same with Chuck from Horsepower, he owns a Chevelle shop in TN and he also lost his 23 year old son right around the time he left.

Stacey has his own show now on ESPN or ESPN 2. I havn't caught it yet but it's suposed to be cool.

She's too manly for my likings and that show is just as bad as the others as far as being too marketing based

Yeah she's hot and all but her 10 second appearence between shows doesn't warrant me watching that block of crap
