It was a really awesome show. Lots of welding. Even showed the head dude TIG welding for a while. They were supposed to be building a Mustang for E-bay all from parts on E-bay but they got away from that pretty quick!

I got to see it. I really enjoyed the show but was somewhat disappointed with the final results. I can't seem to develope the appreciation kids have these days with giant rims! I know they supposedly handle better but I think the things are ugle on any car that haas a V-8. I'm sure they look fine on a Honda with a coffee can exhaust tip!

I know what you mean. They really ruined the look of that classic mustang. They did have some neat cars in the shop. That 1200 hp vette was cool!

Anything over a 17" wheel is to "pimpin" for me. I think some 16" Cragar SS wheels would have been nice! Isn't Chip Foose supposed to be on that show? He's amazing!

I agree on the rim size. He is a very talented fabricator. The 67mustang is my favorite, I wish he left it a bit more stock in appearence, Like the rear light, grill and side air dam/ Louvers.

Every Tues. at 9pm eastern. Next week I believe they are doing a story on Enzo and a bunch of other high $$ exotics they get to cut up.
