Automotive reality shows:
People always ask me what I do in my time away from my automotive businesses? My answer is, “watch automotive reality shows on TV.” Here are my All Time Favorites:
Overhaulin’ is an endearing program hosted by Chip Foose, Chris Jacobs and Adrienne Janic (AJ). The weekly episodes are high energy and endearing. So a deserving contestant’s ride is surprised with a top drawer custom overhaul. It seems that up to 40-technicians collectively contribute their sweat, heart and soul to each project. With more than 100-episodes,even in syndication a visual and emotional feast is lavished on the viewer. Yes they make people’s dreams come true. Check them out!
Fantom Works Television show is hosted by Dan Short. Because he is former military the shop is super organized and many rules about quality of work and safety are strictly enforced. Most noteworthy is the consistency of Dan and his craftsmen fulfilling customer’s often long put off automotive projects. The episodes don’t attempt to hide the frustrations with parts and unrealistic people.
Junkyard Empire is the story of Bob who established a successful Junkyard. His son Andy purchased the business from his dad Bob. With a crew of talented and unique workers damaged vehicles are repaired and even customized for a variety of customers.
Mark Worman is a badass. He tells it like it is and doesn’t take any prisoners so to speak. His operation replicated a small factory. Equipment and the assembly process is constantly being refined. The hardest part of his job it to create classic Mopar muscle cars exactly as they were on the day they were born.
