So, no Fast N' Loud or Fantom Works where you live? Probably why I've never seen Turn N' Burn where I live.

Worst - show - ever!

There's no way in hell any person, regardless of brains or lack thereof would buy that semi rare Pontiac (where are you going to get parts on short notice?) not been driven in many years, have no idea if the drive train isn't toasted, not even gone through to look at electrical, brakes, etc....and decide that it needs to be "auction ready" in 4 days....while working on other projects. I couldn't even finish the show to see the embarrassment of a car they ended up with. will never watch again.
NOT from SC.

i avoid the Ass Monkey Garage idiots, and never heard of Fantom Works... like i said, the only car related tv that's worth a crap right now is the Powerblock on Spike.. but i did catch the end of what the on screen guide says was a brand new episode of Monster Garage the other day, so all is not lost..

I stand corrected...."Brother JD" is originally from southern Maryland per the Discovery Channel Website. I think the person who said he sounds like a preacher hit the nail on the head. The cadence of his speech along with the accent sounds is annoying as heck. I'm sure he was trying to seem like a "character' but it seems very fake.

I haven't hated a program this much in a long time. Usually I'm just indifferent.

I think that GasMonkey turns out cars at times that are (barely) polished turds too. They also do some nicer stuff. I watch because they are just more likable. Your opinion may vary. I thought the Dale Jr Nomad was pretty nice. When they got the car, I was sure they were just going to do a scuff and shoot, but it was stripped to bare metal. Color was a bit putrid but it otherwise a nice, tasteful car.

I like the Gas Monkey guys. Like others said, they don't take themselves seriously.

The Dale Earnhardt Jr. Nomad was nice.

It's just entertainment, not technical.

I like Fantomworks too. They turn out some nice cars and the owner is particular about doing things right. Yes, there's scripted drama in these shows. Gotta' take the good with the bad.

I saw the Gas Monkey guys in Reno a few weeks back. They seemed like good guys, didn't snub anyone, talked to people, took pics etc. I saw both of them at the hotel later and Richard jumped out of a Shelby, jumped off the ground a couple inches and pulled his pants up about 5 inches. He would fit in just fine around here.

I thought the Dale Jr car was nice that Gas Monkey did. They are a little over the top at times ,but at least it's a car show that's how I see it.

First I have ever heard of it. These shows need to take hint from old shows like Rides and some of those biker buildoff type shows. Very little drama geared towards an audience that could give a sh(t less about that crap and is tuned in to see the story about the vehicle(s) in question and how they are built.

These networks are trying way to hard to come up with some sort of gearhead type show with relying heavily on the drama way too much.

The only show right now im holding out for is Gearz. Stacy is supposed to be announcing the new network they made a deal with on the show and it sounds like it may be making it to basic cable.

Yeah it was nice for a daily driver they put it together with the bare metal surface rusted interior floor and some everyday type parts. There's a hundred people on TC here who could do a better job for $75K.Also,certainly Dale jr. could afford a better engine than a crate SBC.I've seen write ups on two of his Camaro's he definately had no say so in this build.
AND...fantomworks what a ripoff,they charged a soldier stationed in Afganistan $99,000. for a 63 Impala convertable rebuild.That guy could have bought 2 or maybe 3 impala's for that kind of money.Way to support our troops there buddy, I can't stand the way this guy just spits out high numbers for a build-up.I know resto work is expensive but it should be sound financially for the customer also.Every car they do is overpriced.
IMO they are using those kind of prices to give these reality show's more unreality like appeal.

tough crowd! i guess im the only guy here that started buying cheap cars in the 70's and throwin a few hundred bucks into them and turnin them around... the high dollar build shows are nice but way over produced and unreachable by those of us out here with real jobs. i like most all the shows, fast and loud and overhaulin are entertaining,even car fix and all girls garage are better than most stuff on the air today. but after having a hard time at first with turn and burn i got hooked... a guy that owns a shop thats a couple weeks from bankruptcy im more inclined to relate to than chasing classic cars or wheeler dealers. i guess it depends on how and when and where you were raised. plus brother jd cracks me up. and im a california hillbilly...
