    been watching this show online the last couple of days and i gotta admit i really enjoy it.


    they build some awesome cars, but its not your typical show where everything goes to plan and they sell the cars for heaps of money


    they miss deadlines, they take the cars to auctions and put no reserve and actually lose money.


    Richard is the main guy, who swaps and deals cars.

    Aaron is the main mechanic, he does some amazing work and wish i had a mate like that.


    anyways strongly recommend it.

    I have been watching it too, and I really enjoy it too.

    Its a realistic show, so its a lot more enjoyable than the other ones.

    Would bang that chick too.

    Ive seen a bunch of episodes and quite like it. they dont really stick to a set way of fixing up cars which is good cause it gets a it boring seeing the same old stuff over and over, like American Chopper, although i still like watching AC. its a shame theres not a similar aussie show on telly... there's a few shops producing nice work in oz. we could have a JC show, but it'll probably turn into a b*tch fest about crap and chev badges lol

    itd be nice to see a short doco on some of the cars on here, even if its only shown on the forum. say a 5 to 10 minute clip about each persons car and the build prcess, including a heap of pics and driving shots. doesnt have to be anything major, just the owner talking about his pride and joy. it'll give other members from other members from other states an oportunity to "see" (for lack of a better description) what each car is like in real life apart from just pics.

    what do you guys think?

    watched the first season along with Texas car wars and outlaw garage. they did a 4 way chopper build off last year, occ, pjd, Jesse James and GMG.


    for those interested, nothing to do with fast and loud, occ has a new show coming, no longer with discovery.

    i have been watching on foxtel also, it is a pretty good show[better than that occ ****] the only thing i hate is the ass monkey boss who buys the cars, he just sounds like a complete ####wit to me. His bearded off sider is a good mechanic/fabricator and has an awsome beard.

    GMG is no where near as good as outlaw garage, build better quality cars. The ep where they built the rod for Paul Sr was good and unexpected. Have always been a fan of jesse james since the WCC/Monster Garage Days.

    I watched counting cars last year when it debuted in the states[took ages to come here on foxtel], i first saw the add for it on an episode of Pawn Stars. Danny builds some awsome cars and bikes.

    The A&E channel has some top shows on at the moment.

    i dont like some of the stuff they do, same with the counting cars show but still a good shows. i remember watching the bullrun show back in 2007 and there was a $50,000 bet he couldn't break the NY to LA record.

    Show is awesome. Its good to see a show that goes into what the real costs are for a build and all the hours that are involved.

    Still gives me a bit of a giggle with Richard having the same voice as the dude out of my name is Earl.

    Jesse James hates everyone. All he does is bag people out.

    I like the show too, he builds some nice cars.

    Texas Car Wars is good too, don't like the ######## from Old Skool though, bit of a wanker if you ask me. Frank is it? Up himself and thinks he is the best flipper on the planet. I like Josh, his shop is basically his shed out the back of his house, does some nice custom work and is "keeping it real". Bit like me really.....

    Barret are playing the cancer card, apparently she has cancer and they did a build that netted them $23K, plus donations. No insurance so they have to pay for everything medical.
