Are you scheiten me

If someone took my 64 Malibu SS and removed the numbers matching original engine and stuck in a computer controlled POS it would be grounds for immediate termination from the earth. Some cars do not need to be restomoded

I think this show is one of the best reality shows on TV.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

At 60 minutes, the episodes feel a little bit long. While viewers see a lot of work being accomplished, there's not enough variety or detail to keep it interesting, despite the camera's frequent jump cuts and the hosts' high-pitched enthusiasm. Kids with a particular interest in cars -- especially body work and design -- will find some good stuff here. But everyone else might find rehab shows with more flash or personality more to their liking.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
