I watched it last night for the first time and the name rang a bell. Did a search and found your thread and confirmed what I thought. Man, the picture that got posted a zillion times got burned into my brain, hope it never gets posted again.

No Kidding,, when I first saw his name and Gas Monkey garage , that whole mess flashed in my mind,, what a piece of work,, but thats all in the past,, don't think we need to drag that back to life,

I liked that 50 olds he did, but alot of stuff was cobbled up, looks like the finish product had all new chrome and looked good,,

I finally watched it, had it dvr'ed. And I have to agree, this guy seems to be desperate to have this show be successful and it is a mind wrenching bore. Kick it to the curb please...lol. His name fits him well, I just call him Dick.

There are lot's of POS's out there that aren't mentioned. But when there is one that thinks so much of himself that he HAS TO tell everyone how great he is even though he is a NOTHING, that gets under peoples craws. It's sort of like a person in the media who is "sold" to us as a great, honest and honorable person and ends up with his wife smashing the windows on his car with a golf club after it's found out he has slept with every woman in town. It just BEGS for people to talk about it.

I also have watched the show and there are a few things that I did not like.

1. They are always under some stupid time frame where they only have one week to finish the car and then get it to an auction.

2. He bought the 1964 Ford Galaxy without really looking it over better for $7,000 bucks and then got it back to the shop and pressure washed it and realized that the paint was worst then they thought.

Two guys who restore cars both looked at it first and did not realize the paint was that bad!!!

They really thought they were going to just put a wheel to it and that was going to be it?

Not very impressed so far with the show. I realize all these shows made for TV seem to have the exact same scrip where they only have so much time to complete each project kind of like Orange County Choppers and all the rest of them.

Real life is just so much different then that. My projects have no time frame ever and when someone asks me for a time I always tell them to call me back in about 6 months and I will let them know what progress I have made so far.

Must be the time of year trolls come out, joining HR for no other reason other than stir the pot and get some face time. Thinking they might be joined at the hip...
