Trivia

"Mother" was a 1928 Porter, but not one of the two real-life Porter makes. It was created by George Barris, who modified the experimental 1950s Lincoln Futura into the Batmobile. The car was built from a 1927 Ford Model T Touring car, with a 327 Chevy V8 engine and automatic transmission. Barris built two Porters for the show; one is now in Tennessee, the other is in Alberta. One car had removable floorboards and controls, which allowed the car to be driven with a driver out of sight, controlling it by watching through hidden mirrors. See more »

One of the writers
22 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was one of the writers for this series. I wrote one episode ("The Blabbermouth" was the title.) It is quite true that at the time the series was on the air, it was considered one of the worse sitcoms in the history of TV. However, over the years, MY MOTHER, THE CAR has achieved something of a cult status. It is broadcast every Mother's Day on TV Land.

I have always been proud of my contribution to this much-maligned and underrated series.
