About the Actor:

Dennis Gage - Dennis grew up on a small family farm in northwestern Illinois. He started tinkering with cars early on, and the first car he purchased was a T-Bird. He continued his automotive interest and, through the course of his college years, owned a number of muscle/sports cars. Dennis accepted a position as a product development scientist at The Procter Gamble Company in Cincinnati, Ohio. Having some disposable income, Dennis got back to playing with classic cars. This is also where he and Ellen had their 3 children. After years at P&G, Dennis took a position as Director of Product Development at a Bristol-Myers Squibb company in Evansville, Indiana. There he met the founder of the fledgling Bradley David Productions, Inc., and he became co-owner of the company shortly thereafter. A My Classic Car pilot series, hosted by Dennis, was developed for TNN and received strong ratings when it aired on TNN in early. Based on this success, the show premiered as a weekly series on TNN in January. The show then moved to SPEED channel where it reaches over a million households. My Classic Car is now one of the highest rated programs on the network. In addition, Dennis is the Executive Producer of the motorcycle television programs, Corbins Ride On and Trippin on Two Wheels, and the reality series, Texas Hardtails, as well as the independent film, November. Dennis also serves on the Board of Directors of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), as well as a number of academic and industry advisory boards.
