<VV> 'Vair on John Boy/Billy
Fri, 14 May 2004 16:50:55 +0000
I didn't hear the show, but am a JohnBoy and Billy fan.
EUM Wrench Eric called me seething with anger about the remarks made by Randy, the office manager and butt of various jokes regarding his sexual orientation on the show.
Owner of a 68 Mustang (IT FIGURES) he made statements in the background like:
"oh, that's the car that catches on fire, and flipps over, etc etc.........
Eric is writing Randy a message, I believe he is challenging him to a driving contest with his mustang on the Billy Graham Parkway, which runs in front of the studio where the JB&B show is broadcasted.

> Hello All:
> The Corvair got about 2 minutes of air time this morning on the John Boy/
> Billy talk show. This is a talk show syndicated across the US and originating
> in Charlotte, NC. Main character, John Boy, is a Chevrolet supporter and
> has a dealership in Taylorsville, NC. He knows little about cars, but seemed
> to be reading from a good script.
> Talked about rear engine, unit construction, independent suspension. And
> the Nader book and law suits during the mid '60s. He also said that the '66
> was planned to be the last year, but with the law suits still in court, GM
> decided to keep it for a few more years. All of this on the May 14 show
> honoring the last production date for the Corvair. Also talked about the
> wide spread Corvair clubs across the US.
> I'm going to send an e-mail to the show thanking him for the coverage,
> and asking if he will say something about the upcoming Nationals.
> Hope some of you heard the show. Bill Loftin
