One of the worst kept secrets in show business is actor Tim Allen's legendary love of cars, an affliction that has almost reached Jay Leno proportions.
In fact the Toolman made his car addiction a major part of the storyline for his classic situation comedy 'Home Improvement'.
The role of Tim's wife on 'Home Improvement' was played by Patricia Richardson and this talented actress was able to make her role as the beleaguered bride of an unrepentant car guy come alive in the show.
We hear a great deal about Tim Allen's real life fondness for cars, but what about the woman who played Jill (Mrs. Toolman) Taylor on "Home Improvement"?
We are a little cautious with certain information when it comes to our vehicle stories here at MyStarCollectorCar.
We exclude the name of the collector vehicles owner's community and we blur license plates if they are in the shot.
Some may feel that we may be overly cautious about this level of protection, but we would rather not put the vehicles and their owners at any risk if we could help protect them.
We had a local recycler who was a well known car guy and hot-rodder. His top employee was also a car guy who had invested heavily into a restoration project that was his pride and joy. It had taken a long time for the man to put the kind of time and money required to do a quality job on his Dart Swinger.
We at MSCC live in a part of the world with real winter.
We live in a frozen paradise where winter is like an unwelcome visitor that stays too long, raids our fridge and drinks all of our beer.
Winter has a brief moment around Christmas where it is welcome and then it sinks back into a long run that will not end until late April at the earliest in our region.
Winter sucks, but most car guys have a game plan to alleviate the effects of the long season between car shows. Most car guys do their best work in winter, largely because they have a lot of spare time and can tweak their cars or start a major new project.
