Each episode focuses on an automotive museum, a car show, or a private collection somewhere in the United States although most episodes are located in the western United States. The program began on one station in Seattle in 1993 and is currently syndicated throughout the U.S. and in several European countries. As of 8/1/08 over 380 new episodes have been produced.
The Vintage Vehicle Show has been on the air since 1993 (IMDB.com). Only Motortweek has been on longer but that program is not devoted to hot rods, customs and classics. Other documentation regarding the show's production can be found at the show's website, www.vintagevehicletv.com and by contacting the producer via the website.
