It's been said that this baby can dig through the ditches, AND burn through the witches.

The first song Rob Zombie released as a solo artist was 'Dragula,' and as it turns out Rob Zombie is a huge fan of the classic 1960's TV show ,The Munsters.  Featured on The Munsters was the Drag-U-La Coffin Car which ended up inspiring the title for his song.

I am a huge fan of The Munsters (and Rob Zombie) so I kind of nerded out when I saw the Drag-U-La was going to be featured on My Classic Car. I grew up going to car shows, my dad has a show car, so My Classic Car is a show I was no stranger too growing up. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but when I was a kid, I was actually featured in a My Classic Car promo that was shot at a car show in Newburgh (we have it recorded on a VHS at home, I'll have to see if I can find it)!  I'm still not sure if my dad was more proud that I was in the promo, or the fact that his car was also featured in it.

Now this episode of My Classic Car features not just the Drag-U-La, but also the Munster Koach.  Which both were featured in the tv series. Although these two are reproduction, they're Drag-U-La #3 and Munster Koach #3, but it's pretty cool to hear about how they were made, and why. In fact the Drag-U-La #3 featured on My Classic Car, was made for a raffle. Could you imagine winning a freaking Drag-U-La Coffin Car?  I'd die (pun intended).
