Chances are, if you have a set of white-walled tires, they’re probably from Coker Tire. Coker Tire is the largest supplier of tires for classic cars. What you may not know, however, is that Corky Coker, owner of Coker Tire, will be on his own show titled Backroad Gold. The show will air on Travel Channel, February 5, 2014 at 9:30PM Eastern Time.
The show follows Coker as he travels across America looking for hidden treasure such as vintage cars, motorcycles, gas pumps, and more. He is no stranger to the classic automobile industry and with more than 40 years of experience, he is now perusing his passion. Coker has brought together his team of experts, which includes his father, Harold; son-in-law Greg; daughter, Casey, and head wrench, Hal to restore and sell the barn finds from his shop, Honest Charley Garage in Chattanooga Tennessee.
If you’re a fan of the show American Pickers on History Channel, you will not be disappointed with Backroad Gold. Producer of the show, Brentwood Communications International Inc., have produced hit shows like Overhaulin’, Rides, and Hot Rod TV. Anyone who is a fan of classic cars or the classic car industry should keep it locked on Travel Channel, February 5. We look forward to seeing what Coker has in store for us.
