ToolTim Taylor's Hot Rods - Tim Taylor (Tim Allen) the host of the Detroit cable home improvement show "Tool Time" on the situation comedy HOME IMPROVEMENT/ABC/1991-99 was crazy about hot rods. He spent much of his leisure time working in his home garage restoring or building from scratch some really cool vintage automobiles.

One of Tim's first hot rods was a 1933 blue Ford roadster convertible (a.k.a. "Blue Goose") with a rumble seat. Its license plate read: "2L TIME."  In February of 1999, Tim finished another of  his hot rods. It was a 1946 Ford convertible sporting a ruby red pearl paint job and a 225hp engine with 5500rpm. The interior upholstery was distressed and featured German canvas.

When not working on his own hot rods, Tim serviced his wife's (Jill) car, a red Chevy Nomad Station Wagon (license plate 964-J57). Tim once totaled the Nomad when a steel I-beam suspended from a crane accidentally dropped on the car. Jill later got a 1966 Austin Healy that initially upset Tim because of his "Buy American" sensibilities, but Tim soon learned to love that car as well.
