No connection with the TV show at all. Car was first built in the late 1980's restored to what you see in the 2000's. Jeffries had nothing to do with this car.

I do wish some car owners would realize that in today's at-your-fingertips world of information, that fakes can be exposed. It seems some are too desperate to connect themselves with TV history, much like decades of builders trying to pass off home-made Barris Batmobiles as the real car(s).

I just visited the website of the auto show in question, and it's funny the web page now says "a recreation" of the original car...

I'm looking around for where I found that it said recreation, but I must be dreaming...huh I might have misread the word refurbished as "recreation"...I'm really diasapointed that the car is a fake...
