The Meredith owned Fox affiliate featured on the History Channel show, Counting Cars. A local hot rod and custom car shop in Las Vegas called Count’s Kustoms remodeled the Ford Expedition.
“The whole idea behind refurbishing the vehicle and taking it to schools is to get kids interested in weather,” said KVVU General Manager Todd Brown. “Our meteorologists can use the FOX5 Storm Chaser to engage students and help them learn.
