The Car That Inspired Rob Zombie’s Dragula Featured on My Classic Car
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).
