The way i view these new members and their one post comments on the Gas Monkey Geerage... they dont understand the situation.

Rawlins and his furry side kick were not the main actors in the original online scandal. These guys were after a paycheck in my view

It was all the ''suits'' that were attempting to hide behind all the little people. It was people like Coker tossing out dirty comments while thinking he could not be ''found out'' while online.

Jon proved these "suits" wrong , very wrong.

I actually tried to watch it the other night......got about 5 min. into it and had enough. The "star" is a clown and so full of himself, same ol' my chit don't stink kinda folks. I met Coddington a LONG time ago when he had his home shop ('78 maybe)....nice guy then but couldn't stand his show. Same with all the others that are scripted by know nothing producers that want to make soap opera's out of them. The new Overhaulin is better now that they have eliminated those stupid prank calls.

The TV producers or whom ever , all seem to add-in, create, make up drama.. It ruins the shows for me. I've watched a few of Rawlin's latest TV show. Not for me. Rawlins unkept furry side kick , looks like he has a small animal strapped to his face

There is a show called CarFellas ( purty sure that is the name) ... absolute waste of time, effort, oxygen ... in my opinion.

American Restoration... producers have ruined the show. Very little actual restoration work is shown now. Item comes in, restored item is revealed at the end. Added drama crap like Cowboy's sandmitch is taken from the fridge or the ''big boobs'' gal wants "more to do" with the shop now that she and Rick are married.

I have not seen much about the ''new'' OverHaulin

I'm gone for a few years, and this whole Monkey business is still going?
Most of those shows are just dramatized crap anyway.

Theres a girl behind those boobs? where?

Im afraid to watch OverFoosin. By the end of it they might just as well gave him a crown a scepter and...well its a rated G website. Chris or whatever the overly trendy host's name was...is now hosting some mindless chick show about celebrities I think... Turn in your man-card Sir

Funny

"Overfoosin". I love it.
I can't stand Foose. That dude is so full of himself. He thinks he's God's gift to the automotive world. He can draw good, i'll give him that much.
Anyone that puts 20" wheels on a 1st gen Camaro needs to be beat with a stick. Foose is a publicity-whore.

GAS MONKEY - stupid show.
I only watched it to see SUE. That lady cracked me up. Rest of the show was silly. Those dudes would build a car, send it to auction, only to lose their A$$es on it. Made me laugh.

Jesse's new show is pretty good. He rags on people, but it looks like him and Senior get along now. ( Like it matters )
I am looking forward to the new biker build-off. Jesse better win this time. No more clown bikes!

Most of these TV shows are nothing more than stupid drama and product advertisements.
The worst ones are the shows where they pretend to start a job, and then the camera switches over
to a table with products on it, and the show host(s) talk for 10 minutes about the products on the table. You never get to see any projects finished. The show ends before anything is done.
The whole show is just a COMMERCIAL. ( Like an "info-mercial". )
Time to turn off the zombie-box and do something constructive!
Hehehehe.

What a bunch of nonsense. It's a TV show. If you don't like it change the channel.

I am nothing to do with anyone else who has posted here from any country. I do however enjoy building cars and kicking back with like minded others. It is my opinion there are too few car enthusiasts of all sorts in the world when lined up against the ever growing, ever more vocal, fact and moral deficicient fake green energy crowd...

So, whenever I see different groups within our wide, varied and usually diverse 'family' slug it out with each other with extreme bitterness it makes me sad . Some of the comments in this thread made me despair. Fight those who threaten your hobby, way of life, family or business, not those who do the same thing, but differently... Sermon over. Back to the garage...

With the thousands of automotive threads so far I just canīt figure out how this site can be called
offensive.
I find it offensive that these t*a*s dump on us with their criticism before even introducing themselves or contributing to the site in general.
Iīm pretty sure that the programme is not shown in the UK, well it wasīnt back in May when I was there.
With the state the BBC is in at the moment they should turn their attentions there and get that solved, thatīs a mountain of poop if ever there was one run on "public donation."

I rest my case... Enjoy your world. Too weird, inward looking, judgemental and sad for me... I think some of you must have had relatives in Salem, cos they did futile smallminded witchhunts there too... Later saddos...
