Storyline

Retired stock car driver Gil Jones is all set to enjoy his leisure years working in Thunder Alley, his garage for specialty cars, when his solo domestic bliss is interrupted by the arrival of his newly divorced daughter Bobbi and her three precocious kids. As if Gil didn't have enough trouble managing his garage with his dimwitted mechanic Leland, now he must make room for three rambunctious kids and a daughter almost as stubborn as he is.

Great show
18 April 2000 | by (victoria, bc, canada) – See all my reviews

This was one of those great tv shows that deserved a longer run than it received. I saw Haley Joel and instantly loved him. He showed then what a good actor he is and I've been following his career ever since. Someday he will win an oscar.
