Ever since the Ford Model T started rolling off the assembly line back in 1906, Americans have had a love affair with the automobile. Over the past 100 plus years, we’ve seen many new makes, models and significant advances in technology. Through it all, one thing stays the same – Americans love their cars.
What drives our passion for the automobile?
The answer depends on who you ask.
To many car enthusiasts, it’s supercars that go 0-60 in 2.6 seconds or the classic beauty of a 1963 Corvette. Others enjoy discovering the latest in automotive technology and the future of autonomous cars.
For the casual car lover, many just look forward to heading out on a warm spring day and cruising down historic Route 66, Blue Ridge Parkway or the Pacific Coast Highway. For the “do it yourself” mechanic, it could be tips and advice for buying a car or keeping your current transportation in top running condition.
Whether you consider yourself a serious car enthusiast, everyday driver or somewhere in between, there’s something for everyone on this season of Driven.
Season 2 premieres Sunday, February 9th on YurView in Cox Communications markets around the country, with new episodes weekly.
Driven takes you behind the wheel, under the hood and out on the open road for a look at cars and the people who love them.
The show is hosted by Tom Gregory, a car lover and 8 time Emmy award-winning host, writer, and producer. He says it’s all about our love affair with cars and the open road, “Driven is unlike all the other car shows out there on TV or online. We are telling stories about cars and the people that love their cars. There’s something in Driven for the total gear-head to the backseat driver… the show moves faster than a Ferrari 488 GTB.”
