Overall, Wrecks to Riches is a pleasant, straightforward car-rehab show that will appeal to automotive enthusiasts and those with an interest in mechanics, electrical engineering, and graphic design. Though viewers see several steps in the rehab process, this is one of the less technically oriented shows in the car-fix genre.

Instead, the focus is on White and his team. They share a fun-loving, positive working environment. Full of passion for what they do, each team member is a perfectionist, from the designer to the electrician to the gold-leaf-application expert. But they're all able to admit their mistakes, too -- even White himself.
