Whatever Floats Your Boat (Episode #103H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jul 27, 2013 -- 9:30 PM

Paul Mikkelson collects anything that has to do with classic and antique boats, motors, and items from boating history. Several of his boats and motors are the last surviving examples known to exist, and all are rare. From the Boondoggle, reputed to be the only single cockpit inboard Larson Falls Flyer Speedster ever built, to more than 500 vintage toy boats, Paul has loved and collected it all. His lifetime love of boats, however, is now about to sink under the financial pressures of a wife who's been in a care center for 40 years and other business ventures in need of cash investment.

Planes, Trains & Automobiles (Episode #101H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jul 13, 2013 -- 9:30 PM

Bob Evans has a fantastic collection of immaculately restored cars: a '55 Chevy, a '33 Chevy 5 window coupe, a '56 Packard 400 Caribbean and a '51 Packard 400 that sold for nearly $100,000 at auction! The Evans collection also boasts several large-scale motorized airplanes, all in superb condition. It's been a very difficult decision for Bob to sell ... but he must due to the devastating effects of throat cancer.
