Fast From The Past Released

Austin, TX. United States

Fast From The Past is a smart and compelling show that follows ordinary Americans who transform vintage cars into full-blown race machines. It shadows them from their places of work, to their home garages, and finally to the track to see how they fare in super sexy, high-speed competition. Mark Mcilyar (Producer and Host) and Randall P. Dark (Director and Cinematographer) teamed up to create a reality show that combines everyone’s love of old cars with the adrenaline of the race track.

Fast From The Past explores the amateur racing culture where the characters are just as interesting as their beautiful cars. Mcilyar and Dark follow ordinary people (dentists, firemen, military vets, salesmen…) who transform our favorite muscle cars from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s into true racing machines. In 2015, Mcilyar produced and directed a promotional trailer to generate interest in his new reality show idea.

The sizzle reel was called Vintage Racer and immediately drew the attention of acclaimed Producer/Director Randall Dark. Mcilyar and Dark then traveled to the world famous Indianapolis Speedway to shoot the pilot episode. Says Dark, “I’ve been involved in many different types of productions but nothing like this. Fast From The Past combines unique characters, mixed with adrenaline pumping excitement, unexpected humor, and heart warming outcomes. It’s a great watch for the entire family”

Post production was completed in March, 2016 by editor Jeff Zavala in Austin, TX.

In addition to his work in the TV/film area, Mcilyar is also the spokesman for Sixpack Shortcuts, an internet based fitness company with 4 million YouTube subscribers.

Just like suspicious activity, we ask that if you see something wrong, have a suggestion, or would just like to tell us just what you like or dislike about the site, you let us know.

We've a lot of things still to add (No Peeking Behind The Curtain!), but we want to make sure what is current online is working without issues. To do this each day we'll add more articles, tweak a feature here, remove a feature there. Just to keep things moving along in the right direction.
