In this series reboot, Nick Lewis learns of a bequest from his absentee father Buz Murdock, a 1961 Corvette. Just like his dad, Nick takes to the nation's highways, accompanied by an outgoing Arthur who was thumbing his way across the country.
This was a sequel to the 1960s TV series, not a remake. I watched the first episode of the 1993 series, and in it, the main character discovers who his real father is--the character played by George Maharis in the original series, that he died, and left him with everything he's got. He had a lot of debt, so all that was left to the son was what was in the garage of his house. They actually used photos of George Maharis as the son looked at pictures of the father he never knew and of course he left him his 1960's red Corvette.
I remember the series from the sixties, mainly my parents watching it--I was nine when it went off the air.
Always liked the Nelson Riddle theme song, much better than the "Get Your Kicks" Route 66 song.
