‘Last Man Standing’ Star Tim Allen Celebrates Cinco De Mayo With Exciting Update on Classic Car Rebuild

by Jennifer Shea

“Last Man Standing” star Tim Allen is marking Cinco de Mayo with an update on his latest classic car rebuild.

“Can you believe it’s MAY?!” Allen tweeted Wednesday. “Happy #cincodemayo ! What else happens on Wednesdays??? That’s right people! #progress.” And Allen included a video of his friend Vik working on the car.

Tim Allen Is a Major Gearhead

When he’s not filming “Last Man Standing,” the actor and comedian can usually be found working on or driving cars. Allen loves cars. Muscle cars, classic cars, supercars – you name it, he’s got it in his garage.

And as Motor Authority reports, Allen particularly loves Fords. He apparently sold his Porsche Carrera GT to get a modern Ford GT, partly because he believed the Porsche was dangerous and partly because he just likes Fords.

But Allen has other types of cars, as well. He recently gave a tour of his garage to the Petersen Automotive Museum, during the course of which he showcased cars such as a 1968 Camaro restomod and a Ferrari 330 GTC, which Allen has to drive often to keep in mint condition.

‘Last Man Standing’ Is Drawing to a Close

Allen’s Fox sitcom is approaching its series finale. The show had aired on ABC for six seasons, but ABC canceled it in 2017. Fox picked up “Last Man Standing” in 2018. Then, last October, Fox announced that this season, Season 9, would be the show’s final one.

“I’ve been one lucky dude to have been part of ‘Last Man Standing,’” Allen said in a statement after Fox’s announcement. “I so appreciate the incredible support from our fans over this near decade of work. As we approach the ninth season, I just admire and feel grateful for all the hard work our wonderful cast and crew have done. We had all considered to end the show after last season, but together with Fox, we decided to add a year so we could produce a full season to create the gentle and fun goodbye. I’m looking forward to a memorable and hilarious final season.”

The one-hour series finale is scheduled to air on May 20. It should provide some closure for the cast and crew of “Last Man Standing” as well as for its many fans. In the meantime, fans of Allen’s work can also catch him on the History Channel’s “Assembly Required” with Richard Karn of “Home Improvement.”
