Well known TV host of shows Horse Power TV and Powertrain has passed at 80.I think he was the Ford guy and co-host Chuck Hanson was the GM/Chevy guy.He did non automotive TV shows also.RIP.

Maybe I'm biased but HP TV is still my all time favorite TV car show. RIP Joe.

Joe and Chuck were true pioneers, paving the way for the many car content TV shows that have followed.
