A few years ago during a pledge drive, the local PBS station ran a special, I think "Being Red Green" was the name, about the history and developement of the show. Steve Smith )Red) had left Canada for the warmer climate of Florida, and he had a houseboat complete with pinball machines and other distractions, where he did his writing for the show. At the end of the day when he was done writing he jumped into a blue Viper RT-10 to drive home.
I gotta tell you, that made my head hurt for several days seeing Red Green driving a Viper.
I guess he must have traded his K-car in.
