Upcoming Hot Rod Shows on cable

FYI

I saw ads for a couple of new hot rod shows coming on cable. One starts tonight at 9pm EST on TLC and it's called "Rides"

The other one starts the end of January and I believe it's called "American Hotrods" hosted by Jason Priestly. I think it's on the Discovery Channel.

Priestly hosts the Rides show tonight. The American Hot Rods show is evidentally a rip-off of American Chopper, complete with the jerk, constantly yelling boss. The latter show was evidentally screened a couple months ago and was seen by several Hotrodders.com board members. Reports wer universally bad and the show doesn't remotely work. The venue is the shop of one of the big name billet rod builders, name escapes me right now.

Even if it sucks, at least I'll have a good excuse for not watching the Lifetime Channel with my wife tonight

Show 01/23 is about Boyd Coddington. Bummer. It shows him having the blue/yellow 'giveaway' car.

I liked the show on the new Cobra, but I wanted MOOOOORE!!

I guess I'll have to find something to do until the next show airs.

The first show was VERY disappointing. They showed very little of the building process and padded the show with mostly interviews with the usual, "We are under extreme time pressure, don't know if we will be able to finish in time" quotes. Conversely American Chopper and Monster garage concentrate on the cutting and welding with occasional human interest vignettes for the chick audience. I'll watch another one or two but if it doesn't beef up the technical content, I won't be a regular.

I wouldn't expect any of the future shows to be any more technical. But they should all be entertaining. I expect some of them to be very cool. I STILL DON'T LIKE THE NEW COBRA.

I was watching the credits roll after Rides was over. One of the Producers of the show is Chip Foose.

I like the old Cobra better, but I don't think many stock cars will EVER hold a candle to that car.
The bright silver Cobra on the show was stunning, to say the designers think they "improved" on that styling is Car-Razy!

How do you "improve" upon the original? Different maybe, but better?

I agree with willys36, to much chatter, not enough clatter.

I, as well, was dissappointed after the first showing of Rides... I would have liked to see more clanging and banging as opposed to engineers sitting around and looking at it from several different angles.

I am hoping that next week's Troy Trepagnier is better.....

Mustang

Hmmm. What is not to like about the Mustang they built? They talk about fab work and don't show it, but the project is great to watch. I am too chicken to do a 1200hp like they did. The work they did to get it to fit INSIDE the car was great to watch. No cut in the hood to make it work, no over size in to the interior, just a nice clean job of a sleeper. That my friends is COOOOL.

Does anyone know anything about the CMA show they where going to show the car at? I sure would like to make the trip to Vegas to see that?

The Mustang build-up last night was a little bit better but still too much talk. I hope they wise up and realize what makes American Chopper and Monster Garage work - bangin' 'n clangin'!
