Every Saturday morning for hundreds of get togethers, it was cars and car people, car events, car reviews, car humor, car care tips, car history. It was the live from ABC/KTMS 1250 NewsTalk radio for the Southern California car-counties of Santa Barbara and Ventura: The Car Guy Show.

Roy “Ace” Miller, parked on the left, is categorically one of the most well-rounded automotive experts in the nation … from being a former racecar driver to owning his own high-end Jaguar service shop, to being a nationally recognized automotive historian, chief judge of the Santa Barbara Concours d’ Elegance — as well as a judge at the famed Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance, among others, best of all is that Roy is a friend. And that is what made the years of California live radio shows a special pleasure on Saturday mornings.

This scene is the radio studio of ABC/KTMS 1250 in Santa Barbara and, no doubt, we were having fun — and with calls from listeners and guests both in-studio and via phone from every facet of the car world — the moments were rewarding. You can hear many of our shows to this day via digital audio on the main page of this web site.
