’Repossessed’ to debut on National Geographic

It’s probably right up there with getting mugged, a girlfriend cheating on you, and getting fired from work as far as traumatizing experiences are concerned. And the worst of it is, you might end up getting filmed as it is being done to you.

We’re talking about having your cars repossessed, which is what National Geographic is making into their show aptly titled, ’Repossessed’. It’s a sordid reality of life, but one that a lot of us inevitably can’t escape from. The lesson, of course, is to pay your bills on time, or at least don’t wait until a repo man comes knocking on your door.

The show checks in tonight at 10 p.m. EST so if you’re curious to know how the business of repossessing cars works, it should be worth a watch.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
