Dang... time flies. I remember going up to Mom's house on Saturday night and watching it when it was new. I loved the tips and envied them for getting to drive the fun stuff. My nephew learned to love cars too as he was watching me get excited over a new release or money saving tips from Pat. Thanks for all the years of information and encouragement Pat! Even now... I love watching. Going to miss you Pat!!!
I watched MotorWeek throughout my childhood and 20's. I eventually stopped watching it as Top Gear and other shows became popular. Can't get the local PBS on streaming but I would gladly watch MotorWeek with it's simple but informative format that is all about the cars. It's not trying to provide you stupid entertainment. Goss's segment was always looked forward to. God Bless him and his family and friends.
I worked with Pat on MW for almost 20yrs. Great guy. Always would greet and speak with people if they approached him. Definitely not a TV diva. Total pro who knew his stuff. Will really be missed! Really nice article Joe. Best PS
One by one the truly great and beloved vanish without giving the tiniest bit of notice. Goss will be remembered and sorely missed. MotorWeek will go on but won't be the same ... ever. Rest in Peace John.
Goss will be missed. While I don't watch a lot of automotive tv , his spots on motor week were my favorite. As somewhat of a backyard mechanic I always learned from him. Condolences to the family first, co workers and those of us who watched him on tv
