Ted Vernon from Discovery’s South Beach Classics and Bob Bennett talking about being at 2016 Automobile Dealers Association of Mega Milwaukee Auto Show.
Most of us have come to know Ted Vernon as the guy on Discovery’s TV show “South Beach Classics”. Along with his lovely dove – Robin Vernon – they own and operate Florida’s largest classic car store. The show follows Ted negotiating the selling, buying and trading of cool rides. Robin takes care of their massive facility, providing assessments of car values and occasionally negotiating her own deals.
However, many of us don’t realize Ted and Robin are much more than car people. They both are actors and appeared in several successful movies. Ted has established worldwide recognition as an actor, writer and executive producer since he played the title role in his own screenplay of Hammerhead Jones, which was released worldwide and still frequents HBO. Ted was the executive producer of the Major Motion picture of John Carpenter’s Village of the Damned with Universal Films starring Christopher Reeve, Kristy Alley and Linda Kozlowski.Vernon’s credits as Star actor/executive producer are in the all time cult famous film Scarecrows as Lead Role of Corbin, Mercenary. As an actor, Vernon filmed South Beach acting with Peter Fonda, Gary Busey, Fred Williamson; Silent Hunter with Fred Williamson and Miles Okeefe; The Unholy with Ben Cross and Trevor Howard; The Victims, Played Arnold Cutter “Real Estate Mogul and Tough Guy”; Deadly Rivals acting with Andrew Stevens and Margot Hemmingway; Played Kojak for Kojak Series Commercials on Channel 4 WTVJ; Starred in Commercial for Arequipena Beer; Vernon recently appeared in the popular teen series “S Club Seven,” as the hilarious Body Guard wearing a dress.
But wait there is more – Ted was a professional boxer with a record of 21:1 and a professional wrestler, stock car driver, stunt and demolition derby driver.
He is still active in producing, directing and acting with feature length moves. His most recent is “Death Print”.
