Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Highway to Sell features car experts and mechanics restoring and auctioning classic cars for a profit. There are lots of makes and models of classic cars featured throughout the series, as well as conversations about some of the experiences (including smoking pot) people had in them. The language is pretty strong ("crap," "hell," "ass"; lots of bleeped cursing), and on occasion there are references to hurting other people. Teens who like this sort of thing should be able to handle it, but the content is a bit strong for younger viewers.
Is It Any Good?
From partnering with owners of cars that need some paint restoration to trying to turn a profit on a classic car that's missing most of its parts, Pittsenbarger and his team are testing a way of turning a profit while being able to work on the classic cars they love. The opportunity also gives them a chance to find creative ways of restoring the cars to make them appeal to today's buyers.
Most of the show's drama comes from the few moments when things seem to go wrong or during the auctions, when they're trying to turn a profit. The show also offers some interesting details about the history and details of various classic automobiles. The show won't appeal to everyone, but car enthusiasts will enjoy what's being offered here.
Did we miss something on diversity?
