Saw previews for it on velocity channel tonight. Hopefully they will focus on building instead of drama. Either way I will watch it

Hopefully they will actually show them working on the cars instead of all the stupid crap they do.

Sorry, I would rather be working on mine (the real thing in my world) than all the DRAMA..............

I like racing and I have races saved from this last year that I'm getting caught up on in the mornings before I head out to the shop.

Yea I didn't watch the shows from the beginning so I'm not sure how they all fit together but why does the main guy surround himself with those people who seem to know nothing about cars? I know one is a son in law but what about the other annoying guy who seems to know nothing? Family? I know alot of the drama is staged but the main knows alot And for the 15 real minutes the show is worth it to me. Although I did fast forward the pumpkin carving. I just re watched alot of the wrecks to riches shows.  Those are great they work on the car the only drama is parts and deadlines. Would be nice for something like that to come back

The show is really kind of growing on me.  At first I was very disapointed.  I thought that what a shame it was to have a Mopar only show and all they had was a couple of guys playing around and seeing how they could annoy each other.  Now I get it.  It is still not one of my absolute favorite shows, but it is curtainly watchable.  I doubt that any of us would learn any thing about Mopars by watching the show but I could see someone just getting started in our hobby could learn a thing or two.  Anything that encourages new participants to get into the Mopar game is ok in my book.

The guy up here in Canada that bought my 71 440+6 Cuda said he had these guys restore a couple of cars for him with great results. Quality work and cheaper then average prices... :dunno:

If this show takes off I bet the prices will go through the roof if you want something restored by them.  Look at what happened to Chip Foose.

We were up there at Marc's shop a few months ago during a video shoot on the black 1971 Cuda that will be featured on one of the future episodes. They have an impressive set-up there. His body shop has state of the art equipment and in the same building there is a video/editing room. Marc does some excellent restorations and his prices are well below what one would expect for the level of the finished product one receives. All of the drama in the show is just that-drama, which seems to be the requirement to get the ratings needed to keep it on the air like most shows. Hats off to anyone that can do a tv show and operate a restoration business at the same time.

Marc was finishing the 71 black Cuda for a new Phantasm movie when we were up there. We installed the exhaust system so I got a close up  undercarriage view of this car. Amazing detail.  This was the only picture Marc gave me as that day was scheduled for the exhaust installation on the project.
