I hate to be the first on this but Gas monkey (their incompetent, unprofessional and dangerous) All three farm work out, and the shows are edited to death! The winner would be whichever gets the most money from the networks and can spend more to get the cars built and painted by the good shops they send the cars to!!!!!LOL

Ditto! I could care less if any of them built a car, let alone did a buildoff.

I happen to like watching the shows, It's TV. I would vote on Counting Cars. I don't take the shows serious. I know that Gilligan was not really marooned on that island.

I can not tell you, I can't convey in words how much I dislike that dude on Counting cars with the headband (?) OMG I can't stand that guy! I have been a big fan of "Pawn Stars" which is the show where he "got famous" (gag me) and the guy just brings a vomit on.

Did I mention I don't like that guy much?

I take the show's for what they really are...Entertainment !!!! When I do ever watch TV... And that's not to offen..

But I really don't think I can say there's anyone on TV that build's cars that I would like to see a build off with..... Now.. Take ED Roth,darryl starbird and some of them old builder and then it will be a good show to watch,, If the Producer's don't screw that all up...

The only problem is Randy, some of those old guys what we both love so much, they really didn't BUILD the car very well. They styled it like art, but the build it's self, YEOW. I have had the good fortune of being around some of these cars in shops being restored or repaired and seeing them "naked". Some cars that I have drooled over in the past were MILES from well built. This hasn't changed my view of them, they are still art and I know the quality of most builds have went up over the years, it is what it is.

This goes for "show cars" in general, seen a couple very famous cars that won BIG awards that were miles less than stellar naked.

And the ones on tv are any better????


I seen and had the chance to sit and talk with them guy's... Yes they had things about their cars I didn't like as well,,, But they was BUILT.. And some from NOTHING... Where is that today,,, All you see now is patching up old cars.... I would like to see someone BUILDING a car from nothing.... That's what people want to see... Just look at the view's on just me and Cboy's home made cars... That will tell you what people want to see... That is the biggest reason I post of these forums... People like seeing things made from NOTHING...

And I wasn't trying to wave a flag look at me and cboy,, Just telling it like I see it..

I understand, I am just saying........Besides most TV viewers don't want to see the meat and potatos of such builds, they want to see the fire that cooks them.

That is all the typical viewer wants apparently or they wouldn't make these shows over and over. Us car guys hope to see SOMETHING of value and we may watch them for those little glimmers of hope that we see something interesting. I know when I first got cable I watched a lot of them, just for that little bit of real car building stuff. I don't know what changed me or them, I think a lot of both but I don't watch any of them anymore because seeing a little bit of good stuff has gotten old hat now and the drama is such a waste of time there isn't enough good stuff to make it worth it. I don't even know the names of the shows now.

The one that I really enjoyed watching with my son was Monster Garage. Before it got stupid they made some cool cars. The idea was to make something that looked unmodified yet did something very different. They did a wheel puller ambulance that was a kick in the butt. That show was fun, showed a lot about building the car, with a LOT less drama. It eventually morphed into a more drama filled stupid show with cars that were by not means interesting like when it started. The budget was real low when it started and they did some amazing things with very little money. Then the sponsers came along and they got crate engines and any wheel they wanted rolling in with big names all over the boxes and BS like that. But when it started, it was a damn cool show. The Mustang GT made into a lawn mower for a golf course was a kick in the head.

What do you mean, "Gilligan was not really marooned on that island"?
