X Prize reminds me of old TV show

Seeing all this press about the X prize lately got me thinking about an old TV show that I remember, probably done in the late 70’s early 80’s. The show was about a family that created a spaceship from garbage/recycled parts. I think their launch pad was right in the middle of the family junkyard. They had pretty hokey costumes and sets. Is this something I am dreamt or does anyone else remember it as well? I don’t think it was on for longer than a season if that.

Are you thinking of Salvage (a.k.a. Salvage One), which starred Andy Griffith?

You nailed it. Thanks for the title I just looked it up on IMDB, sadly there are no pictures. I remember it fondly, I would love to see an episode or two just to see what I liked way back then.

sadly there are no pictures.


Here ya go. Lots of pictures, and you can listen to the shows theme music! :slight_smile:

OMG! I’ve been telling people for years that I remember this show, and they always say I’m nuts! I KNEW I wasn’t crazy! :mad:
