    Default Anyone else watch the car builder shows?

    I could sit here all day lol watching the custom autobuilding restoration shows that are on Velocity channel & Sometimes on Discovery Channel, Mostly Inside west coast customs it sparks my interest in doing something completly different to my truck, then theres Desert car kings, Fast & Loud, Overhaulin, and others, there are some on Speed channel. I even watch the Mecum auto auction & wonder why the economy is bad when you see several cars sell for 6 + figures. Just wondering what everyone else is watching when technicaly nothing is on.

    Oh heck yeah. Overhaulin' was one of my favorites until they changed producers and Courtney Hansen left the show. Watched Trucks until Stacy David left, and I've picked up Gearz when he started that show. Probably my favorite now though Fast n Loud is coming up pretty quick.

    I really like the new format of Car Warriors this second season. Looking forward to the next one. I even kinda dig My Ride Rules. I'll record those if they look decent, but often they are full of trash-talking putzes...though a few have been fun with older, educated gearheads.

    Spike TV's Powerblock is fun, but they do a lot of stuff I just don't care about too much, or the same stuff they have been doing for years. Rick Bacon just left them and is working on starting his own show (per his facebook page). He does a ton of cool paintwork, flames and stripes on anything paintable.

    I want a dvr and flatscreen in the garage so I watch while I work.

    Yea, I must DVR about 20 a week.
    Fast & Loud is my current Favorite, waiting for Jesse James to release a few of the shows he's already taped, for a bike builder he can do some awsum cars.

    I wondered why Rick wasn't on Muscle Car this past weekend. I will watch his new show if/when it comes on. Jesse James was a car guy before he started doing bikes. I also watched Trucks! back when Stacey was on it. I have been watching a lot of Wheeler Dealers lately. Overhaulin is supposed to be coming back with new shows.

    Any time any place I can. Don't watch much TV anymore but occasionally like tonight I watched a show while doing 2 miles on the hotel tread mill.

    Yep, but it's been a while since I have. I like "Desert Car Kings." I'd also like to bring to attention the show "Truck U" on Speed. Another good show.
