A national audience  is getting to know  a Chattanooga tire and antique car expert.  Wednesday night was the premier of the cable show "Backroad Gold"

Corky Coker is laid back and obviously having a good time in the a new Travel Channel series about finding treasures along the back roads of the U.S. 

Wednesday's first episode was shot at Coker's business near downtown Chattanooga, in Cleveland and down on Sand Mountain in Alabama.

Corky's father Harold started  Coker Tire Company in 1958.  Corky expanded the antique tire division in 1974.
